The Milwaukee Bucks have now filled out their 18-man roster ahead of the 2023-24 NBA season, and there are plenty of interesting faces, both new and returning.
Throughout the process, there have been a handful of new numbers handed out, as well as some jersey number changes. With all that said, let us break it down and see what numbers players will be rocking throughout the 2023-24 NBA season.
Bucks’ jersey number changes and updates for 2023-24 NBA season
Grayson Allen will be changing his number to ‘3’ next season, which was previously not available due to George Hill and then Meyers Leonard. This will be the third consecutive season that Allen will wear a different number for the Bucks, having started off with No. 7 before switching to No. 12 for Joe Ingles last season. Allen wore No. 3 at Duke in college and with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Speaking of No. 7, Chris Livingston, one of Milwaukee’s additions from the 2023 NBA Draft haul, will be wearing it. Livingston was originally set to wear No. 15 for the Bucks, but he switched it up. Andre Jackson Jr. will wear No. 44, which is not a major surprise, given that he wore it in college at UConn during his three-year stay there.
With Jevon Carter inking a deal with the Chicago Bulls, No. 5 opened up, and Malik Beasley wasted no time snatching it. Malik Beasley has worn the number during his previous three stops with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Utah Jazz, and Los Angeles Lakers, so it’s understandable. Robin Lopez, another recent signing, will be rocking No. 42, which he wore during his first Bucks stint as well.
Switching gears to the new two-way signings, Omari Moore will wear No. 18, while former first round pick TyTy Washington will don No. 23. Keep an eye on these two, as 18 and 23 could be on the court more than fans expect this coming NBA season.
In short, there’s nothing seismic here, but it’s still interesting. It will be great to see these players on the court in their new threads for the Milwaukee Bucks in the coming months.
