Bucks Cut Johnny O’Bryant

The Bucks have waived forward Johnny O’Bryant, the team announced today (via Twitter). Milwaukee now has 19 players on its preseason roster.

O’Bryant, 28, was selected 36th overall by Milwaukee in the 2014 draft and spent the first two seasons of his professional career with the Bucks. He later spent time with Denver and Charlotte, ultimately appearing in 147 NBA regular season games, averaging 3.5 PPG and 2.4 RPG in 11.5 minutes per contest.

O’Bryant has been out of the league since 2018, having spent the last several seasons playing for teams in Europe. He won an Israeli League championship with Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2019 and a Serbian Cup title with Crvena Zvezda in 2021. He also spent time with clubs in Russia and Turkey.

An earlier report stated that O’Bryant was competing for a spot on Milwaukee’s regular season roster. It appears that effort was unsuccessful, so it’s not clear what his next move will be. His deal with the team included Exhibit 10 language, so joining the Wisconsin Herd in the G League is one possible option — returning overseas is another.
