Both players saw their only preseason action for Milwaukee on Friday night in a 127-113 loss to the Pelicans. Stauskas grabbed two boards in four minutes of action while Graham did not record any stats in three minutes of play.
Graham, a veteran swingman with 180 games of NBA experience to his credit, joined the Bucks on a training camp contract in late November. His most extensive action came as a reserve with the Hornets in 2017/18 when he averaged 4.3 PPG in 63 games. Graham, 25, split his time between the Timberwolves and Hawks last season and has also seen time with Brooklyn.
Stauskas, 27, is another well-traveled NBA veteran who has seen time with the Kings, Sixers, Nets, Trail Blazers and Cavaliers. The Canadian, who joined the Bucks in early December, averaged almost 10 PPG for the Sixers in 2016/17 but has since seen time as a reserve for several teams. The eighth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft has struggled to develop into a solid rotation piece.
However, Stauskas has hit 35.3% of his career three-point attempts and played fairly well in Spain last season, making 42.2% of his threes in 22 EuroLeague contests.
With these moves, the Bucks’ roster is likely set for the regular season, as the team has 14 guaranteed contracts along with two two-way players. Milwaukee’s hard cap prevents the team from carrying a 15th man for now, as Bobby Marks of ESPN tweets.
