The Milwaukee Bucks have officially put the finishing touches on their 2023-24 roster.

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, the Bucks plan to sign Jaylin Galloway to a two-way deal, filling their third and final two-way slot after it had been vacant for so long. He joins a room of two-way players that features former first-round pick TyTy Washington and Ryan Rollins, who was recently brought aboard as well.

Outside of a very brief Summer League stint with the Minnesota Timberwolves before the season, Galloway has spent his professional career overseas in Sydney. NBA insider Marc Stein (Subscription required) reported earlier in the week that Galloway was generating interest from several teams, so it's interesting, at the very least, that he chose the Bucks, who could only offer a two-way spot.

In 26 total overseas appearances this season, he averaged 10.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals per game while shooting 53.8 percent from the floor, per RealGM. He was also a pest on the defensive end, utilizing his 6-foot-7 stature to hound opponents. At just 21 years old, he has plenty of room to grow as a player, making this even more exciting.

Barring something unforeseen, Galloway will not have a substantial impact on the Bucks this season, given that he's on a two-way deal. Almost all of his time will be spent with the Wisconsin Herd in the G-League, where Milwaukee's other two-way players typically reside. That will allow him to get good game reps to work on his craft.

Galloway joins a young core for the Bucks that features several other lengthy wings with athleticism and defensive upside in MarJon Beauchamp, Chris Livingston and Andre Jackson Jr. Many fans have pointed out Milwaukee's need for more youth and athleticism on the roster as the current group ages, and these are all young players they could aim to mold into rotational players in time.

In short, signing Galloway is a low-risk, potential filled move. Bucks fans will not see him in Milwaukee much for the remainder of the season, but that could potentially change down the line.
