The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as former Buck Mirza Teletovic‘s playing career officially came to an end due to health issues.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we learn about Mirza Teletovic’s retirement finally being made official, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar‘s upcoming auction, and more.

Teletovic’s time with the Bucks came to a close late last season, essentially indicating the writing was on the wall for his overall playing future. With Teletovic’s inability to return to action now made official, the Bucks are certain to get cap relief for the remainder of his contract in November, while Teletovic will transition into a new role within the game, and hopefully enjoy a long, healthy and happy retirement.
