Anyone need a 6’9” floor-stretching forward who hit 44.2 percent of his threes last year?
A lot of teams could, which is why Mike Dunleavy Jr. is starting to draw some interest around the league, reports the Journal-Times.
Apparently, Dunleavy’s fine playoff showing after a quality regular-season performance has impressed some other NBA folks as well. I’m hearing several teams are keenly interested in signing the soon-to-be unrestricted free-agent.
Dunleavy is the kind of solid, professional role player a lot of teams could use. His main asset is his shooting, his ability to stretch the floor, but his all around game is nice, too. As a big off the bench, especially when paired with a penetrating point guard, he has value.
He made $3.75 million last season, which sounds about right. The Bucks may be able to keep him at that price, but Dunleavy will have options.
