After missing out Russell Westbrook, the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday confirmed the services of shooting guard Charlie Westbrook for preseason training camp.

After missing out Russell Westbrook, the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday confirmed the services of shooting guard Charlie Westbrook for preseason training camp. Westbrook has agreed to sign for the Bucks on a one-year, non-guaranteed deal, according to league sources.

Westbrook went undrafted out of South Dakota in 2012 and has played overseas and in NBA’s Development League since then.

Westbrook is going to be the 17th man of the Bucks’ roster. 15 players in Milwaukee’s roster have guaranteed deals. Westbrook becomes the third player of the franchise after Jorge Gutierrez and Marcus Landry had non-guaranteed deals, according to reports.

Westbrook, a former Tezenis Verona guard, was in camp with the Miami Heat in 2013. Most recently he played in France.

Westbrook gets an opportunity here to earn a regular spot in the roster. There are several names in the Bucks’ roster who could feature in shooting guard position where Westbrook plays. Khris Middleton, O.J. Mayo, Rashad Vaughn, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Jerryd Bayless are capable of featuring in that position.

So with no direct need in the team, Westbrook has an uphill task to impress and stick to the line-up in the regular season.
