NBA Free Agency 2012: Joel Przybilla Agrees To One-Year Deal With Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a one-year deal with unrestricted free agent center Joel Przybilla on Monday night. Przybilla had reportedly entertained offers from the Mavericks before settling on Milwaukee.

He joins Samuel Dalembert as the interior presences for the Bucks next season. Dalembert was traded from the Houston Rockets earlier in the offseason.

Przybilla's agent Bill Duffy had this to say about his client:

"Joel sees a need there in Milwaukee and he likes where the Bucks are going," Duffy said. "Last season, with the strike and coming off the (knee) injury, he was a little reserved about coming back.

"But now I sense a whole new commitment from him."

Przybilla played for the Trailblazers last season, appearing in 27 games and starting 19 of them. He averaged just two points but grabbed 5.1 rebounds in 16.6 minutes a game
