Free-agent guard Xavier Munford is considering taking his talents to the Chinese Basketball Association, a league source told Amico Hoops. Munford is 6-foot-4 and spent last season on a two-way contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. It is believed the Bucks gave him a qualifying offer, making Munford a restricted free agent. If so, the Bucks would have the right to match an offer from another NBA team.
Matt Velazquez: Per source, the Bucks have extended a qualifying offer to Jabari Parker, making him a restricted free agent. As expected. Bucks also extended qualifying offers to two-way players Marshall Plumlee and Xavier Munford to make them restricted as well.
The Milwaukee Bucks have signed guard Xavier Munford to a Two-Way contract, and have converted forward Joel Bolomboy to a standard NBA contract.
Matt Velazquez: Per league source, the Bucks are moving Xavier Munford up from the Wisconsin Herd to a two-way contract. Joel Bolomboy & Sean Kilpatrick both are on two-way deals now, which means one of them will need to be moved off their two-way — to Bucks roster or waived — to make this work.
Shams Charania: Sources: Milwaukee is signing guard Xavier Munford of G League’s Wisconsin on a two-way NBA contract. Munford has averaged 24 points for Bucks’ affiliate.

Who would Wolves staff consider to be early candidates for the most improved player on the roster? 2) Do the Wolves see McKinley Wright IV as a sort of “Pat Bev-in-training”? 3) Will there really be a concerted effort to apply full-court defensive pressure? — @Tresio The two players I have heard a lot of buzz about looking great in workouts: McDaniels and (drum roll, please) … Russell. Sounds like he is locked in right now.
The 21-year-old guard should thrive in pick-and-roll action with Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley as rim rollers, while the addition of Lauri Markkanen, who shot 40.2 percent from downtown last season, will help space the floor and open pick-and-pop opportunities. “I think Garland’s kind of gotten lost in the shuffle in terms of people knowing who he is because of Colin Sexton,” an NBA scout opined. “If he stays healthy, I like picking him.”

I have heard A-Rod and the new ownership is bully on the Wolves. What major moves do you predict they will make to improve the product in the next couple years? — @SPORTSviKINGs17 So far, it appears like the immediate target is just modernizing things, bringing a franchise that has often been at the back of the pack to more of the cutting edge when it comes to technology and innovation — that sort of thing. Of course, the main goal will be to make the Timberwolves more competitive on the floor, but I think there is a real emphasis on everything around the basketball, as well. What can be done to change the perception of the organization? They are taking a long look at culture and values and defining characteristics. Those might seem like mumbo jumbo to dyed-in-the-wool hoop heads, but those are things that Lore and Rodriguez are very familiar with in their other businesses. They can dive in on them right away as they work to get up to speed on the intricacies of basketball, the collective bargaining agreement and the team in general.
