Report: Bucks reach deal to bring Orlando Johnson into camp


Somewhere some UC Santa Barbara fans are happy about this. For everyone else, this likely doesn’t mean much.

The Milwaukee Bucks have 15 guys under guaranteed contracts, so anyone who signs there headed to camp dreaming of making the squad is going to have to impress so much the front office decides to eat a contract (or make a trade) to create space. That’s not likely. But Michael Scotto reports Orlando Johnson is going to get a chance.

Johnson had 10-day contracts with the Suns and Pelicans last season, but couldn’t stick. It’s tough to imagine him sticking here.

The Bucks will start Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo as their wings (the latter as a point forward). Behind them are Rashad Vaughn, Malcolm Brogdon, and Steve Novak. So yes, they could use some depth. Not sure if Johnson is the guy who can provide that.
