Bucks Waive Tucker, Lacey, Jones

Rayjon TuckerTrevor Lacey and Jemerrio Jones are the final three roster cuts for the Bucks, the team announced in its Twitter feed. All three were on Exhibit 10 contracts and are likely to wind up with the Wisconsin Herd, the organization’s G League affiliate.

Tucker signed with Milwaukee in August and appeared in three preseason games, averaging 3.3 points in 9.7 minutes per night. He announced in the spring that he was transferring to Memphis from Arkansas-Little Rock, but opted to keep his name in the draft, where he wasn’t selected. Tucker played for the Bucks’ entry in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Lacey signed with Milwaukee on Thursday and Jones inked a deal with the team earlier today, so neither saw any preseason action with the Bucks. Jones was waived by the Wizards earlier this week.

    I’m sure it’s common practice, but why would you sign a guy only to cut him a few hours later? Doesn’t seem very efficient…

      If you sign a player to an exhibit 10 contract (which is non-guaranteed $) then cut them, you now control their G League rights. You pay them a $50K retention bonus and they play for your G League team
