The Bucks have signed 29-year-old free-agent forward Marcus Landry, a Milwaukee native and former University of Wisconsin player.

The team announced the move on Monday afternoon.

After starring in high school at Milwaukee Vincent, Landry played four years for the Badgers and went undrafted after college. He’s played professionally in the NBA, the D-League and overseas since his Wisconsin career ended in 2009.

Last year, Landry played in 49 games for the Spanish club CAI Zaragoza, averaging 10.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists. He played parts of two other seasons in Spain, as well as international stints in Puerto Rico, China and Venezuela.

In 2009, Landry began his career with the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics. He also spent time with the D-League’s Maine Red Claws and Reno Bighorns. During the 2013 NBA D-League All-Star break, he was named to the Futures All-Star roster and won the Three-Point Shootout.

At Wisconsin, he was twice named an All-Big Ten second-team selection. His older brother, Carl Landry, was a second-round draft pick in 2007 and has played in the NBA since then, currently for the Philadelphia 76ers.
