Buck Sign Storey

The Milwaukee Bucks have signed guard/forward Awvee Storey.

“Awvee is a hard-nosed, aggressive player who brings depth to our roster at the guard and small forward positions,” said Bucks GM Larry Harris. “He’s an excellent athlete and a solid defender who will be a good addition to our team.”

Storey, who performed well in Summer League for the Bucks, has bounced around the basketball world, including brief stints with the New Jersey Nets and Washington Wizards.

It’s difficult to see him ultimately fitting into the team’s active 12-man roster. If he does slide in, it’ll be a minimal role, focusing on giving energy, rebounding, and defense.

If history is any indication, Storey might serve as an intimidator of sorts, hopefully channeling the intimidation in a constructive manner.

Storey is most noted for his punch of teammate Martynas Andriuskevicius while in the NBDL.

He also was arrested along with Gilbert Arenas on charges of disobeying police.
