Rayjon Tucker originally signed with the Milwaukee Bucks after he went undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. He was assigned to the Wisconsin Herd where he quickly became one of their most exciting prospects. In his first stint with the Herd, Tucker averaged 23.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.8 assists. His production led the Utah Jazz to offer him a contract, and he made his NBA debut with them in December of 2019.
Following the 2019-20 NBA season, the Jazz traded Tucker to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who then waived him. He signed with the Los Angeles Clippers before training camp in 2020, but was waived when camp ended.
After spending much of the 2020 season with the Philadelphia 76ers, Tucker re-signed with the Wisconsin Herd. In his second stint with the team, Tucker averaged 17.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game. The Denver Nuggets signed him to a 10-Day contract last season, but he returned to the Herd once the ten days were up.
Tucker had signed a three-year contract with the Bucks in April of this year.
Luca Vildoza is an Argentinian basketball player who the Bucks signed to a two-year contract during the 2021-22 season. He made his NBA debut in the Bucks’ opening round playoff series against the Chicago Bulls.
Prior to signing with the Bucks, Vildoza had played three Summer League games with the New York Knicks. He was waived and underwent foot surgery. Prior to trying to break into the NBA, Vildoza played professionally in South America and Europe. He is a member of Argentina’s National Team.
