Third two-way contract candidate – Rayjon Tucker

Last but certainly not least, Rayjon Tucker is looking to find some stability after floating between the G League and NBA levels last season.

It was with the Herd where Tucker really shined the most to start the season as the Bucks took a keen eye to the athletic combo guard after he initially signed with their Summer League squad in Las Vegas and going undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. In his 16 appearances with the Herd last season, Tucker averaged 23.8 points on .496/.386/.690 shooting, 4.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists.

Tucker’s sparkling play certainly caught the attention of NBA scouts and it was Tucker’s performance at the 2019 G League showcase that eventually led to him signing a multi-year deal with the Utah Jazz midway through the 2019-20 season.

From there, the 23-year-old got very limited minutes during his time in Salt Lake City as he averaged 3.1 points while shooting 46.5 percent from the field and 17.6 percent from three over his 20 appearances with the Jazz. Tucker was eventually dealt to Cleveland over the offseason ahead of his salary guarantee date where he was subsequently waived.

Now, Tucker is preparing for the G League bubble where he will suit up for the Agua Caliente Clippers. Tucker certainly has a flair of explosiveness that follows him wherever he goes and perhaps another strong string of performances again could get him back on the NBA level, depending on how his play is in the bubble.
