Chris McCray Wins Roster Spot with Bucks

Chris McCray (2002-06), who was signed as a free-agent by the Milwaukee Bucks before training camp back in mid-September, has won the final roster spot, according to Bucks GM Larry Harris. His signing was not guaranteed: the Bucks had 17 players signed for training camp, with only 15 roster spots, and Chris was one of two players without guaranteed contracts. McCray's successes in camp and the preseason, combined with a few injuries won him a roster spot to open the season.
