OCTOBER 14: The Bucks, as expected, have waived Tucker, JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors tweets.
OCTOBER 13: The Bucks have signed free agent swingman Rayjon Tucker to an Exhibit 10 contract, a league source tells our JD Shaw (Twitter link). In a corresponding roster move, Milwaukee waived Jemerrio Jones, who signed a training camp contract earlier in the week.
Tucker, 24, spent most of the 2019/20 season with the Jazz, then signed a two-way contract with the Sixers in January of 2021. He has appeared in a total of 34 regular season games in his first two NBA seasons, averaging a modest 2.8 PPG and 0.9 RPG in 6.7 minutes per contest.
The Bucks signed Tucker to his very first NBA contract, an Exhibit 10 deal back in August 2019. He appeared in 16 games with the Wisconsin Herd – Milwaukee’s G League affiliate – as a rookie before getting called up to the NBA by Utah.
The Bucks likely envision Tucker returning to the Herd for the 2021/22 campaign, and Jones figures to join him there.
