The Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly agreed to a training camp deal with Summer League standout Christian Wood, which brings their roster to the maximum limit.

One day after bringing back Shazbazz Muhammad on a training camp deal, the Milwaukee Bucks have made yet another roster move to fortify their roster heading into their training camp this year.

First reported by Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports, the Bucks have agreed to a deal to bring in big man and accomplished G League veteran Christian Wood on a training camp deal, as confirmed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Matt Velazquez.

Of course, all Bucks fans are well aware of who Wood is and his talents after he played with the Bucks during their Summer League run in Las Vegas last month.

While in Vegas, Wood showed out in style as he put up 20.4 points on shooting splits of .554/.308/.571, along with 10.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks in the Bucks’ five Summer League games.

As a result of his play in Sin City, the former Runnin’ Rebel earned All-NBA Summer League First Team honors following the completion of the event.

Despite his impressive performance and the subsequent buzz that was generated because of it, it was initially believed that the Bucks weren’t interested in continuing to give Wood a look beyond Summer League as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Matt Velazquez relayed after their final game in Vegas.

But obviously in the time since then, nothing came of the interest that Wood presumably created off of his performances last month, leaving the door open for the Bucks to give him an opportunity to potentially make the final roster heading into the start of next season.

With the addition of Wood, the Bucks’ roster now stands at the maximum 20 players NBA teams are allowed to have going into training camp (excluding their two-way players).

While this development is worthy of celebration for Wood, considering the twists and turns he’s experienced in his professional career, it’s still far from the aspirations he holds for himself as he told Velazquez after his performance in the Bucks’ Summer League opener:

"“I believe I can be a rotation guy, but it’s going to take some time and I’ll work on it,” Wood said."

With this likely being the last roster move in the offseason, barring some unforeseen development, this year’s training camp is shaping up to be a very interesting one across many aspects for the Bucks.
