Milwaukee Bucks Daily: 16 free agents visit for mini camp

WASHINGTON, DC -  JANUARY 10: Trey Burke /

The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as the Bucks invited a group of free agents for a mini-camp workout.

In this latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we get the details of Tuesday’s free agent mini camp, the announcements for the MECCA game and Classic uniform, and more.

There were a number of notable and familiar names for avid NBA watchers among Tuesday’s group of free agent visitors, and now the question is whether any of them convinced the Bucks to extend a training camp deal or offer a G League contract with the Wisconsin Herd.

If the Bucks do decide to make a move on any of those players, we’ll have all of the details here on Behind the Buck Pass, as well as a roundup in this column every morning.
