Y! Sports NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski also reports that Drew’s contract is for three seasons with an option for a fourth.
Drew was recently fired by the Atlanta Hawks after spending three seasons with the team, leading them to the playoffs each season and compiling a 128-102 record for a .557 winning percentage.
Despite making the playoffs, the Bucks are coming off a 38-44 season and are in a but of a transition period with both starting guards Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis as well as key reserve J.J. Redick eligible for free agency. If they can retain at least two of the three, Milwaukee has a chance to improve and make the playoffs again next season.
