Yesterday, I reported that the Milwaukee Bucks’ initial NBA Summer League roster included Vin Baker Jr. and Paris Bass, two former Horizon League players trying to make their way to the NBA. Today, the entire Bucks Summer League roster was released, and it has some very familiar and interesting names on it.
Former Milwaukee Bucks Draft Pick Jabari Parker Joins Tacko Fall on Summer League Roster
The initial roster provided had the names of rookies that were either drafted or signed along with unsigned free agents hoping to earn a NBA contract. Today, that list of players was expanded to include veterans hoping to make NBA comebacks and overseas players under club control.
Among those is Jabari Parker, who recently had a workout with the Phoenix Suns. Now, he is heading back to where it all began for him. The Bucks drafted Parker with the second overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, hoping he and Giannis Antetokounmpo grow together and dominate.
While Giannis worked himself up to a Defensive Player of the Year, and two-time MVP (not to mention NBA Champion), Parker struggled with injuries and was often labeled a poor locker room presence.
After not playing in 2022-23, Parker hopes to find a NBA team this season. He is still just 26 years old.
Tacko Fall, the 7’6″ center from Senegal spent last season playing in China after failing to get regular NBA minutes with the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers. Playing for the Xinjiang Flying Tigers, Fall averaged 13.8 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 3.3 blocks per game.
