Lue Signs WIth Bucks
Jul 16, 2008 9:58 PM EST
The Phoenix Suns and Boston Celtics both missed out on their free agent target on Wednesday, when point guard Tyronn Lue agreed to a two year contract with the Milwaukee Bucks, the East Valley Tribune is reporting.
Lue signed for the bi-annual exception of $1.9 million, which Phoenix did not have available after using the exception on Grant Hill last season.
The move comes as a double blow for the Celtics, who earlier in the day lost free agent James Posey to the New Orleans Hornets.
The Suns will now look at Sam Cassell, Jason Williams, and Shaun Livingston, or they could try to trade to find a backup for Steve Nash.
