The Milwaukee Bucks are, as always, participating in the NBA Summer League hoping to get a good look at their new young draft picks in action. Of course, there are other NBA hopefuls on the Summer League roster as well, such as undrafted free agent signings Omari Moore and Drew Timme.
In addition to these players whom the Bucks have already committed to, there are several other players hoping to find their way onto a NBA roster by impressing teams in the NBA Summer League. One of these is Vin Baker Jr., the son of the Bucks’ former All-Star and assistant coach. Baker spent the last two years playing at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee.
Vin Baker Jr. and the Milwaukee Bucks Summer League Roster
According to Clutch Points, the Milwaukee Bucks NBA Summer League Roster is as follows:
- Vin Baker Jr. – UW-Milwaukee
- Paris Bass – Capitanes de Arecibo (Puerto Rico)
- Jazian Gortman – Overtime Elite
- Andre Jackson Jr. – UConn
- Chris Livingston – Kentucky [Pick No. 58 in 2023 NBA Draft]
- Nico Mannion – Virtus Bologna (Italy) [Pick No. 48 in 2020 NBA Draft]
- Omari Moore – San Jose State
- Drew Timme – Gonzaga
- Lindell Wigginton – Milwaukee Bucks Two-Way Contract
Last season, Baker only played 7.2 minutes per game, averaging 2.0 points while shooting 53.3% from the floor.
Paris Bass is a former First Team All-Horizon League star who averaged 18.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game as a sophomore, but missed eight games that season due to a suspension. Eventually, his college career came to an end in 2016 as Detroit Mercy kicked him out of their program.
Bass played for the Wisconsin Herd for part of least season, and set their record for most points in a game (50).
In Case You Missed It, Vin Baker Was Retained by the Milwaukee Bucks
Perhaps lost in the all the coaching news surrounding the Bucks this offseason, assistant coach and former All-Star Vin Baker was retained by Adrian Griffin to be a part of his coaching staff. He was first hired as an assistant coach by Mike Budenholzer when the recently fired coach took over the team in 2018.
