Within hours of being announced as part of the Summer League team in Las Vegas, Luca Vildoza was released by the Milwaukee Bucks, according to what was reported on Tuesday by journalist Michael Scotto de Hoopshpye. In addition to Vildoza, the 2021 champion also released forward Rayjon Tucker.

The possibility of the cut was always latent, considering that Luca’s contract was not guaranteed for 2022-2023. That is to say that the Bucks could release him without the need to have to pay for it.
The situation ends up being quite similar to the one he experienced with the New York Knicks a couple of seasons ago: he reached the end of a season, without making his debut in the Regular Phase, and was cut before the start of the following season. The difference is that in this case the Argentine came to play 7 games in the Playoffswith an average of 0.7 points in 2.4 minutes.
Milwaukee now has 13 players under contract for next season: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday, Brook Lopez, Grayson Allen, Pat Connaughton, George Hill, Thanasis Antetokounmpo and once their signings are official, also Bobby Portis, Joe Ingles, Jevon Carter, Wesley Matthews and Serge Ibaka. In turn, 1st Round rookie MarJon Beauchamp is expected to join soon. AJ Green and Sandro Mamukelashvili will be the two-way, leaving just an open hole in the rosterwhich could be covered by the Nigerian Jordan Nwora.
Will Luca Vildoza play the Las Vegas Summer League?
Beyond the cut the option for Vildoza to play the Summer League is alivetaking into account that no type of contract with the franchise is needed to be part of their squad in the summer league. The Bucks had already announced Luca’s participation in Las Vegas this Tuesday, July 5.
Of course, not having a formal link with the Bucks, Vildoza could also end up representing another of the 29 teams in the Summer League..
