ST. FRANCIS - The Milwaukee Bucks will open their training camp today, after NBA owners and players approved a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement yesterday.
Free agency begins at one this afternoon. Teams can also start making trades again, as the five-month lockout officially ends.
The agent for Milwaukee veteran guard Keyon Dooling says his client will be dealt to Boston today. But it was not immediately clear who the Bucks would get in return. Reports say Milwaukee will also send a protected second-round draft choice to the Celtics for next year. Dooling said in April he was not expecting to return with Milwaukee this season. And he asked for a trade after the Bucks traded for guards Shaun Livingston and Beno Udrih on draft-day in June. Dooling started 22 games for Milwaukee last season and played in 80. He averaged seven points and three assists.
Media reports also say the Bucks will sign veteran guard-and-forward Mike Dunleavy Jr. today. Dunleavy, son of former Bucks coach Mike Senior, has played the last four-and-a-half seasons with Indiana.
