The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to deals with two free agents, Bobby Portis and DJ Augustin, according to Shams Charania.

Portis is joining the Bucks on a two-year deal with a second-year player option, Charania notes.

The 25-year-old, who had his option declined by the New York Knicks earlier this week, averaged 10.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game last season in 66 games.

Portis should get solid minutes with the Bucks, backing up center Brook Lopez, or even playing alongside him at times.

Augustin on the other hand, agreed to a three-year, $21 million deal, per Charania.

The 33-year-old averaged 10.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game for the Orlando Magic last season.

Augustin will get the opportunity to be a solid backup point guard with the Bucks, or even start some games and play in the backcourt alongside newly-acquired Jrue Holiday.
