After being waived by the Bucks last week, free agent shooting guard Elijah Bryant is headed overseas, having signed a two-year contract with Anadolu Efes, the Turkish team announced in a press release.
Bryant, 26, joined the Bucks during the last week of the 2020/21 regular season and was part of the group that won an NBA championship three months later. He put up 16 points and six rebounds in 32 minutes during Milwaukee’s regular season finale, then logged garbage-time minutes in 11 playoff contests.
The former BYU standout, who began his professional career by playing in Israel from 2018-21, was released by the Bucks in September, rejoined the team for training camp and the preseason, then was cut again last Thursday.
In addition to playing in Turkey’s top basketball league, Bryant’s new team also competes in the EuroLeague — Anadolu Efes won its first EuroLeague title earlier this year.
