General Manager John Hammond announced today that the Milwaukee Bucks have requested waivers on rookie guard Darington Hobson and signed veteran centre Brian Skinner to a contract.
Hobson, 23, was selected in the second round (37th overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft after being named Mountain West Conference Player of the Year as a junior at New Mexico. He was unable to participate in the Bucks Summer League entry or training camp due to a hip injury, which led to season-ending surgery on October 12.
Brian Skinner is a 12-year NBA veteran and has played in 605 games and holds career averages of 4.8 points and 4.7 rebounds while shooting 49.4 percent from the field. He played in all eight 2010 pre-season games for Milwaukee and averaged 1.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in 11.6 minutes per game before being waived on October 25. Skinner spent the 2009-10 season with the Los Angeles Clippers, where he played in 16 games.
