Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
Chris Haynes: Milwaukee plans to waive guard Gary Payton II in the coming days, league sources tell ESPN. His 45 days of service as a two-way player ends Monday. Payton II started six games for Bucks. This is not a popular move within the locker room.
Matt Velazquez: Can confirm @Chris Haynes report that Bucks plan to waive Gary Payton II on Mon. as his days of service run out. Per source, Bucks have their eye on another player to take his spot and need to move quickly to get him. New player on two-way would get pro-rated days (30ish) in NBA.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Mirza Teletovic will be sidelined as a result of pulmonary emboli in both lungs. Teletovic’s condition was discovered when consulting with Bucks team physicians after he experienced unusual fatigue earlier this week. Following a 10-day rest period, Teletovic will begin his supervised rehabilitation program and updates on his condition will be provided when appropriate.
Gery Woelfel: Bucks are expected to make an announcement yet today on the status of Mirza Teletovic, who has been dealing with a blood clot condition since his days with the Nets.
Jim Eichenhofer: Jason Kidd on Anthony Davis/DeMarcus Cousins: “Their bigs are very talented – the best in the league when you talk about being able to play on the outside, inside, rebounding the ball, offensive rebounding. Both can move the ball up and be the point guards.”
Who are some players that you study and try to learn from? I know this gets asked a lot during the draft process, but I’m always curious who current players are studying. Brandon Ingram: There are a lot of guys around the league, whether they’re smaller players or bigger players. Whether it’s watching Giannis [Antetokounmpo] going to the rim, whether it’s watching KD with his pull-up jumper, whether it’s watching Shaun Livingston with his post work and ability to shoot over guys… I try to watch anyone else who has the size and length to shoot over other guys, like I have. You can take bits and pieces away from watching those guys.
