Bucks reportedly interested in Luther Head, add Sun Yue to roster
According to Chris Thomasson of Fanhouse, the Milwaukee Bucks have interest in Luther Head as a possible solution to their backup point guard question.
More shooter than creator, in five NBA seasons, Head has a career 3-point shooting percentage of 39% and has averaged 8.5 points per game. Head played in 47 games last season for Indiana, with 10 of those coming as a starter. Head spent his first three and a half seasons in Houston before a trade to Miami. While he’s not the passer that Luke Ridnour was, he is a very capable shooter for a team that lacks in accurate guard 3-point shooting outside of Brandon Jennings.
Head had agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Hornets, but a supposedly failed physical in the wake of GM Jeff Bower’s departure, left him looking for a job again.
After playing three games with the Washington Wizards in Vegas, Sun Yue is suddenly a Buck. The 6-foot-9 point guard could be what the Bucks need for their last two summer league games, someone who can create shots and take care of the ball. Guard play has been what’s kept the Bucks from winning a game in three summer league attempts.
Yue played a total of 20 minutes in three games with the Wizards, going 1-8 from the field and scoring 3 points. He should see more of an opportunity with the Bucks.
At the very least, this is a story of minor interest. I haven’t done much research, but I can’t think of a player suddenly switching summer league teams during league play ever before. I’ll try and see what the details on this story were later this evening.
