Veteran center Jake Voskuhl has reached agreement with the Milwaukee Bucks on a one-year, $3 million contract, ESPN.com has learned.

The signing was expected to be announced Thursday, when the Bucks were to renounce their rights to at least one of their five free agents in order to clear room to sign Voskuhl. Milwaukee's unrestricted free agents are Ruben Patterson, Brian Skinner, Earl Boykins and Jared Reiner. Also, Ersan Ilyasova (who plans to play in Europe next season) and Charlie Bell are restricted free agents.

Voskuhl, a seven-year veteran, averaged 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds in 14 minutes per game last season for the Charlotte Bobcats, his third NBA team. With the Bucks, he will join Dan Gadzuric as a backup to Andrew Bogut.
