Milwaukee Bucks: AJ Green impressed in NBA Summer League

Although it was far from a perfect Summer League outing for the undrafted AJ Green, he had his share of moments. In the opener against the Brooklyn Nets, the guard shot a red-hot 5-of-10 on his field goals, including 4-of-8 from three, en route to a 14-point outing off the bench in a great win to kick things off. A few days later, he scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting from long distance to help push the Bucks past the Dallas Mavericks. However, between those games, the guard had a few blunders where he could not throw the rock in the ocean. Still, when he was on, Green was flat-out on as a long range marksman. The 22-year-old has a lethal 3-point shot, and if he can be consistent with it at the next level, he could potentially carve out a role for himself in the future. Green is currently set to start next season on a two-way contract with the Bucks, and it will be interesting to see how he develops down the line.

Milwaukee Bucks: Rayjon Tucker impressed in NBA Summer League

After showing promising signs of potential during the final portion of the 2021-22 season with the Milwaukee Bucks, fans were anxious to see Rayjon Tucker in the Summer League. The guard did not disappoint, having been a part of several highlight-reel-worthy plays throughout the five games. In total, Tucker’s stats were not the most eye-catching, as he averaged a mere six points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game, but his impact went beyond the stat sheet. Whether the young guard was skying high for a rebound, playing pestering defense, or throwing down a vicious dunk on a fast-break, he did a little bit of everything for the Bucks in the Summer League. There is a reason why the Bucks recently signed him to a training camp deal, and it will be intriguing to see how things pan out for Tucker in the coming months. The all-time leading scorer in Wisconsin Herd history could end up back with the G-League squad or potentially earn himself a real deal with the Bucks for next season, but only time will tell.
