Bucks waive two-way player Bonzie Colson
The Milwaukee Bucks parted with Bonzie Colson on Sunday. According to Eric Nehm, the Bucks opted to waive Colson to make room for two-way players Cam Reynold and Frank Mason III.
The Bucks have waived Bonzie Colson.
Frank Mason III and Cam Reynolds are in their two two-way slots and 14 of 15 NBA roster spots (when Korver becomes official) are filled.

Colson played eight games for the Bucks last season, where he averaged 4.9 points and 3.8 rebounds. He also had a great Summer League stint this year, as he averaged 13.2 points and 5.2 rebounds in five games.
The 23-year-old was tipped to at least retain his two-way spot in Milwaukee or earn a regular roster spot after his strong showing in Las Vegas. However, the Bucks had other plans in mind, as they opted to go with Mason and Reynolds, who will take the two designated spots for two-way players on the roster.
It remains to be seen if the move was actually made in favor of Colson. There is some speculation that other teams might offer an NBA roster spot to Colson for the 2019-20 NBA season.
The Bucks currently have a stacked wing rotation. They kept Khris Middleton, who is expected to start at the three spot again next season. They also added Thanasis Antetokounmpo, the brother of Giannis, and also inked a deal with veteran sharpshooter Kyle Korver, who got a one-year deal worth $2.6 million.
