Bucks to Sign Awvee Storey

The Bucks will reportedly be signing guard Awvee Storey to a two-year contract (second year team option) in the coming days. The source on this was also the first to break the Blake/Magloire trade last year and the Voskuhl signing this year, so you can pretty much bank on this one happening. The 30-year old Storey has bounced around a lot, including short stints with the Nets and Wizards and played well for the Bucks' summer league team in Vegas last month, averaging 11 ppg and 4 rpg on 51% shooting. He's a tough, physical shooting guard who led the PAC-10 in rebounding as a junior at Arizona St. despite standing only 6'6", 200 pounds. From what I saw in Vegas he had developed a pretty decent shot and played as hard as anyone on the court. Whether he'll see much time on the court for the Bucks is another story.

Storey is however most known for a couple of off-court incidents that should help fill the sketchiness void left by Ruben Patterson. In May 2006 he was arrested along with former teammate Gilbert Arenas in Miami. Then in December 2006 he wrecked the face of D-League teammate Martynas Andriuskevicius, though the enormous Lithuanian was polite enough not to press charges.
