Former Milwaukee Buck Robert Traylor Dead at the Age of 34

Reports out of Puerto Rico indicate that former Milwaukee Buck Robert Traylor has died of a heart attack at age 34.  He was a current member of the Vaqueros de Bayamón squad in Puerto Rico’s top professional league.

As a member of the Bucks, Traylor may be best remembered as the player acquired in a trade for Dirk Nowitzki and Pat Garrity in a swap of three draftees following the 1998 NBA draft.  He played two seasons for the Bucks, starting 43 of his 49 games in his rookie campaign, while averaging 5.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.

Below is footage of Traylor from April 2011 playing for Bayamón (dark jerseys).
