MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks have assigned injured forward Jabari Parker to the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA’s G League.
Parker’s assignment means he can try to practice with the Herd as he recovers from a devastating left knee injury. He injured his ACL last Feb. 8 and underwent surgery six days later.
The Bucks also said Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) they have requested waivers on guard Gary Payton II and have signed guard Sean Kilpatrick to a two-way contract.
Payton was signed to a two-way contract on Oct. 17 (Oct. 18, PHL time) and appeared in 12 games (six starts) with the Bucks this season. He averaged 2.5 points and 1.4 rebounds per game. The 6'4" Kilpatrick played in 16 games with the Brooklyn Nets this season before being waived on Dec. 7 (Dec. 8, PHL time).
