The Bucks have signed guard Rayjon Tucker, the team announced in a press release.Rayjon Tucker

Tucker, 24, is 6-foot-3 and most recently been playing for the Wisconsin Herd, the Bucks’ G League affiliate. Per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Tucker is receiving a three-year deal. Presumably, not much of that is guaranteed.

The Bucks created the open roster spot after waiving injured guard/forward DeAndre’ Bembry.

Tucker is capable of handling both guard spots and averaged 19.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 40 games with the Herd. He also has some NBA experience, appearing in three games with the Nuggets earlier this season on a hardship contract. 

He also played 14 games with the 76ers last season, and 20 with the Jazz in 2019-20. Along with that, he has signed contracts with the Timberwolves and Clippers.

The defending champion Bucks are still battling for playoff position entering the final weekend of the regular season. Tucker will be eligible for the postseason given that he’s already officially signed.
