The Milwaukee Bucks added another guard with a 10-day contract under the NBA’s hardship allowance.
After inking veteran Langston Galloway earlier Friday, the Bucks signed Jeff Dowtin.
A 6-foot-3 guard, Dowtin went undrafted in 2020 after four years at Rhode Island. He was signed by Orlando in training camp but waived, then the following summer was with the Magic in the summer league and preseason.
Dowtin was signed by Golden State to a two-way contract this season and appeared in four games, tallying six points, seven rebounds, three assists and a block in 28 minutes. The Warriors waived him Jan. 2.
In 12 games with Santa Cruz of the G League this season, Dowtin averaged 17.7 points, 5.1 assists and 1.3 steals.
The Bucks are a bit short-handed at guard with Grayson Allen, Pat Connaughton, George Hill and Jrue Holliday out due to health and safety protocols and Donte DiVincenzo nursing an ankle injury.
Milwaukee plays at Brooklyn on Friday. Catch the action on Bally Sports Wisconsin beginning with Bucks Live at 6 p.m.
