NBA Rumors: 3 Milwaukee Bucks Who Won't Be Back Next Season

It was another disappointing playoff finish for the Milwaukee Bucks this season,and plenty of work will need to be done over the summer to replenish and reshape this roster moving forward.

There are a number of players who shouldn't—and won't—be back next season, and here we present three who will definitely be passed on by the Bucks.

Jae Crowder

After all the fanfare of his well-publicized holdout from the Phoenix Suns in 2022 and the big trade to Milwaukee for five second-round picks, Crowder's bite has been far less than his bark. He averaged just 6.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 22 minutes per night over his season-and-a-bit with the Bucks. And his contributions in the playoffs—when he was really supposed to make a difference—were even more sparse. The Bucks will let him go into free agency.

Danilo Gallinari

The 35-year-old was brought in after the trade deadline as an insurance piece, but he was unable to make any type of contribution, as he shot just 17.6% from three-point range and averaged only 2.8 points in nine minutes per night. The Bucks can definitely find a younger piece with more upside than Gallinari. 

Thanasis Antetokounmpo

How much longer can the Bucks continue to have, essentially, a mascot take up a valuable player spot on the roster? Yes, he's Giannis' brother, but if the Greek Freak really wants to get serious about competing for another title, using his brother's roster spot for someone who can actually make a contribution would be a nice little accommodation that Giannis could make.
