The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired forward Michael Beasley from the Houston Rockets for backup point guard Tyler Ennis in a deal that beefs up Milwaukee’s frontcourt depth.

The 6-foot-9 Beasley averaged 12.8 points and 4.9 rebounds in 20 games last season for Houston.

The deal could signal that the Bucks intend to keep 6- foot-11 Giannis Antetokounmpo as a primary ball-handler, a position in which he thrived last season.

Michael Carter-Williams and Matthew Dellavedova can also play point guard.
