Milwaukee Bucks: Every Olympian In Franchise History

11 of 20

Gary Payton (USA) – 1996, 2000 Olympics

He may not be remembered favorably in the pantheon of former Bucks, but there’s no denying that not only is Gary Payton an NBA legend but a legend of Olympic play also.

The Glove played in back-to-back Olympic Games for Team USA, coming away with a gold medal from both the Atlanta Games in 1996 and Sydney four years later at the turn of the century.

Due to the considerable talent on the teams Payton played on thanks to the arrival of pros on the international scene, his Olympic numbers are more modest than you might have expected. Payton averaged 5.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists.

Payton, of course, starred for the majority of his career in Seattle, before landing in Milwaukee for half a season in the Ray Allen trade. Brief spells with the Lakers, Celtic and Heat followed, with the Hall of Famer winning a championship with the latter.
