MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Bucks have signed center Brook Lopez.
A 10-year NBA veteran, Lopez spent the 2017-18 season with the Los Angeles Lakers after playing the first nine seasons of his career with the Brooklyn Nets.

He’s a great teammate and we know he will be a positive addition to our roster both on and off the court.”
