Bucks sign Goldwire

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) – The Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday signed guard

placed on the injured list because of a left rib injury. James was slated to
start in the backcourt alongside Michael Redd this year, his first season with

James averaged 8.1 points and 3.5 assists last season with Detroit and
