Bucks Sign Jazian Gortman

The Bucks have signed rookie free agent Jazian Gortman, according to RealGM’s log of official NBA transactions.

Gortman, 20, played for the YNG Dreamers in the Overtime Elite program before becoming draft-eligible this spring. He averaged 13.9 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 3.9 APG, and 2.5 SPG while shooting 45.3% from the floor and 80.8% from the free throw line.

After going undrafted, Gortman joined the Bucks’ Summer League team, though he saw limited action in Las Vegas, logging just 45 minutes across five games. He scored a total of 24 points on 10-of-24 shooting to go along with five assists and four rebounds.

While the exact details of the agreement aren’t yet known, RealGM doesn’t classify it as a multiyear or two-way contract, so by process of elimination, it sounds like it’s a one-year standard deal.

I’d expect the contract will be non-guaranteed and will include Exhibit 10 language, putting Gortman in position to either have it converted to a two-way deal or to become an affiliate player for the Wisconsin Herd (Milwaukee’s G League team) if he’s waived.
