    Former Bucks forward Bonzie Colson signed a deal with Darussafaka Tekfen of Turkey for the 2019-20 season.

    Colson was mainly in the G-League last season but did appear in eight games for the Bucks where he averaged 4.9 points and 3.8 rebounds in 12.3 minutes.

    Free-agent Dragan Bender has signed with the Bucks on a two-year deal.

    The 4th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft was recently linked to having a verbal commitment with CSKA Moscow, but will instead stay in the NBA for the next couple years. Bender has shown flashes since coming into the league, but he has mainly disappointed during his short career. He will compete for a role off the bench in Milwaukee.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo

    There is video that came out showing Giannis Antetokounmpo taking jump shots alongside new teammate Kyle Korver.

    If Giannis is able to improve upon his efficiency when taking shots from outside, he will take the word unstoppable to another level. In his career, he is a 27.7% three-point shooter. Korver, a career 42.9% three-point shooter, will look to help the reigning MVP improve upon the one weakness in his game.

    The Bucks have signed forward Luke Maye to an Exhibit 10 deal.

    A 6’8″ forward, Maye played his college ball at North Carolina, winning a national championship with the Tar Heels in 2017. He went undrafted last month after a senior season in which he was named the ACC’s Most Improved Player, averaging 14.9 points and 10.5 rebounds in 36 games. He struggled in the Summer League with the Bucks, averaging just 3.0 points on 18.8 percent shooting and he is expected to spend time with the Wisconsin Herd.

    The Bucks have waived Bonzie Colson.

    Colson only played 98 minutes during his rookie season, but when he played he was a DFS favorite. Colson could play multiple positions and is young enough where a few teams would likely be interested in taking a flier on him.

  • Frank Mason
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have agreed on a two-way contract with Frank Mason III.

    Mason did not get much opportunity with the Kings last year and sat out all of Summer League with a sore hip. He projects to spend most of his time in the G-League and called up only if Eric Bledsoe or George Hill need to miss time. The Bucks recently signed Cameron Reynolds to a two-way deal and still have Bonzie Colson on one from last season so they are one over the limit. They still have an empty roster spot even after signing Kyle Korver so maybe one of their two-ways gets a standard deal instead. Otherwise, one of them will need to be waived.

  • Kyle Korver
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    This is not the worst landing spot for Korver but he will strictly be a backup and entering his 17th season, he should not be relevant in standard leagues. He was able to knock down 2.1 triples per game in only 20.1 minutes last season so he may have value as a specialist in super-deep leagues however.

  • Cameron Reynolds
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have signed Cameron Reynolds to a two-way deal.

    Reynolds played in 19 games with the Wolves as a rookie after playing for five years at Tulane University. As he moves to the Bucks, expect him to continue to compete for the opportunity to be a backup point guard in the NBA. With the Bucks entering next season as title contenders, there is no room for Reynolds in the fantasy landscape.

  • Thanasis Antetokounmpo
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have made their signing of Thanasis Antetokounmpo official.

    Antetokounmpo is believed to be on a two-year deal that is fully guaranteed for the veteran's minimum. Antetokounmpo has just two NBA appearances to his name, both coming back in 2016 with the Knicks. It's unlikely that he'll play much, if at all, though at least he'll get to hang with his MVP little brother.

  • JR Smith
    SG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    J.R. Smith will meet with the Bucks on Thursday, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    This is the first team other than the Lakers, who have already been deemed an unlikely landing spot, to be connected to Smith. Milwaukee is looking for another wing shooter and Smith would fit the bill in a perfect world, though it's unlikely that he would play a major role for any team after sitting out since November.

  • Wesley Matthews
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Michael Scotto of The Athletic is reporting that Wesley Matthews' deal with the Bucks is for two years and $5.3 million, with a player option on the second season.

    Matthews was initially reported to be heading to Milwaukee on a one-year deal for the minimum, and that may still essentially be the case given the likelihood that Matthews opts out if he has a strong season. Either way, it's a nice piece of business for the Bucks, who get a 3-and-D wing player at a very affordable price. Matthews is shaping up as a low-end source of threes and steals, as he typically does.

  • Pau Gasol
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Detroit Pistons have expressed interest in Pau Gasol according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.

    Gasol recently celebrated his 39th birthday and is recovering from left foot surgery to repair a stress fracture. It's really tough to imagine him playing productive minutes in any scenario at this point in his career, but he still may have value to a team with his leadership and sheer size alone. The Pistons only have two backup big-men on the roster in Markieff Morris and Thon Maker, so they are likely to make a move to address that depth issue before training camp.

  • Bonzie Colson
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Bonzie Colson scored 14 points on 6-for-10 shooting, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in Friday night's loss to the Blazers.

    Colson has consistently been the best player for the summer Bucks, which is exactly what you'd hope to see from someone with even limited NBA experience. Unless the Bucks deal with injuries Colson will stick to the bench for the most part again next season.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have officially announced the re-signing of Khris Middleton.

    Middleton quickly agreed to a five-year, $178 million deal to stay in Milwaukee, where he'll look to help the team get over the hump in an Eastern Conference that looks wide open. He struggled to adjust to coach Bud last season and found himself losing out on statistical production in a new role, so the hope is that he can rebound and reestablish himself as a top-35 fantasy option once again.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have officially re-signed George Hill.

    Milwaukee waived Hill to get out of an onerous salary but re-upped him for three years and $29 million. He'll be looking at some extra minutes with the departure of Malcolm Brogdon and will look to keep his momentum from a strong playoff run. There probably won't be enough here for 12-team leagues, but Hill is on the board in deeper formats as a nice fit in the Bucks' system.
