Given that they are likely done making any massive moves, the Milwaukee Bucks had a quietly successful offseason following their title-winning campaign.

As the fans anxiously wait to see the reigning champions back in action next season with this retooled roster, they will have to sit and wait through the dog days of the offseason. They could certainly tune in and watch the Milwaukee Brewers, who recently got a new investor in reigning Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, but baseball is not for everyone.

Instead, one fun exercise would be to look at some former Bucks players who are still available on the free agent market. With their roster largely filled out, this does not mean that the reigning champs should try to sign these players, but rather to take a closer look and potentially offer up some reasoning as to why they should or could get a shot on a team before next season.

With that being said, here are five former Bucks that remain unsigned at the time of this writing.

Milwaukee Bucks: Jeff Teague remains unsigned in 2021 NBA Free Agency

Considering he was just on the championship-winning team, it will not take much for Bucks fans to remember Jeff Teague’s time with the franchise.

The guard came aboard midseason via the buyout market, filling the team’s previously vacant backup point guard opening. While he was never viewed as the needle-tipper, Teague’s production with the Bucks was inconsistent as ever. While Teague’s playing time was scattered throughout the playoff run, fans will always be thankful for his11 points in Game 6 against the Atlanta Hawks, his former team, in the Eastern Conference Finals.

After the season, the writing was on the wall that Teague would likely not return. Indeed, the team opted to go in a different direction and sign George Hill to be their new backup point guard, which was one of their best moves made this offseason. Nothing against Teague, it is just that Hill fits better with the team at this point due to his skill set and familiarity with the franchise.

Teague still remains unsigned at this moment, but he could still find himself on a roster sooner or later. Contending teams that are strapped for cash and looking for a backup point guard could take a flyer on Teague. He would be a solid veteran presence and productive piece off the bench that would not command a hefty deal. As teams look to put the finish touches on their roster, expect Teague to potentially find himself playing somewhere.
