MILWAUKEE (AP) -Guard Royal Ivey signed a one-year contract with the Bucks on Tuesday, a day after Milwaukee backup point guard Charlie Bell signed an offer sheet with the Miami Heat.
The Bucks have a week to match Bell's five-year, $18.5 million offer and have not ruled out re-signing Bell, even though he said Monday he did not want to return to Milwaukee.
``Royal has shown that he can play both the point and off-guard positions,'' general manager Larry Harris said in a statement. ``He has good size and athleticism, and brings a defensive mentality to our roster.''
The 6-foot-4 Ivey was drafted in the second round by Atlanta in 2004 and appeared in 53 games last season, averaging 3 points and a rebound in 10 minutes a game.
