Bucks sign Isaiah Canaan to 10-Day contract
With George Hill and Donte DiVincenzo expected to miss some time, the Milwaukee Bucks have brought in Isaiah Canaan on a 10-day contract to help fill some of the minutes left up in the air.
The Bucks remain at the top of the league with the number one record of 45-14. However, there is still a decent chunk of basketball left to be played in the regular season. Staying competitive down the stretch of the season is tough enough, but Milwaukee experiencing injury to key rotational players makes it even a little more difficult.

So far this season, Isaiah Canaan has spent time with both the Phoenix Suns and Minnesota Timberwolves. His tenure on both rosters was less than spectacular and led to his return to the free agent market.
In 26 total games this season, he is averaging 6.7 points, 2.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists. He likely won’t be asked to do a lot for the Bucks’ offense, as other players on the roster are capable of bringing the ball down and helping run the half court.
For Canaan, his success with the team will most likely weigh heavily on his ability to hit open shots. Milwaukee has found success all season long trotting out as many shooters on the floor as possible, especially when they share the court with Giannis Antetokounmpo.
With new head coach Mike Budenholzer having a trademark knack for ensuring his team spaces the floor properly, Canaan will have to be a reliable 3-point shooter if he wants to stick around in Milwaukee.
