With training camp tipping off on Tuesday, September 25, the Milwaukee Bucks made three signings to complete their 20-man training camp roster. Shabazz Muhammad, Tim Frazier, and Christian Wood were all added to compete for final roster spots.
Shabazz Muhammad returns after being signed by the Bucks on March 4th of last season.
Muhammad appeared in 11 regular season games for the Bucks, averaging 8.5 points and 2.8 rebounds in those contests.
The veteran guard/forward spent the first four years of his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves after starring at UCLA.
Tim Frazier, a 6’0″ point guard, has bounced around in his career as the Bucks will be his fifth stop.
He played with the Washington Wizards last season, starting 11 games and averaging 3.0 points and 3.3 assists per contest.
Christian Wood has appeared briefly in the NBA with short stints in Philadelphia and Charlotte.
He starred for the Bucks in the 2017-2018 Las Vegas Summer League, earning All-NBA Summer League First Team honors.
Wood averaged 20.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game while providing a constant paint presence on both sides of the ball.
The former UNLV star also earned All G-League second team honors after a successful season with the Delaware 87ers.
The Bucks come into the 2018-2019 season with a ton of talent that needs to prove it can work together.
Led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Bucks are well positioned to compete for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference.
Any contributions from players such as Muhammad or Frazier will be seen as a bonus with Milwaukee already being a deep team.
