Drew Gooden has reached agreement on a five-year, $32 million contract with the Milwaukee Bucks, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Strike while the free agent iron is hot, folks.
Drew Gooden - a well-traveled post who has played for eight teams in eight years - signed with the Milwaukee Bucks on the first day of free agency for slightly above the mid-level exception because he wants a home.
Milwaukee adds depth up front next to budding center Andrew Bogut, and young point guard Brandon Jennings.
So Gooden, hopefully, gets his security, while the developing Bucks get a blending scorer and rebounder.

LeBron James has had a lot of power in Cleveland, according to ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher.
Sources told Bucher that James vetoed trades he didn't like for the Cavaliers, while pushing other deals through that he thought would help the team.
Any team that signs LeBron will likely have to set a basis for how much power he'll have in the front office.
Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf never gave that type of power to Michael Jordan, so it's doubtful he'd give it to James.
