As the Milwaukee Bucks get set to start a three-game road trip Sunday evening, intrigue still surrounds their final open roster spot.

The trade deadline and buyout deadline has passed and the Bucks netted both P.J. Tucker and Jeff Teague over the last few weeks to shore up their biggest needs that weren’t yet filled on their roster. Now with one more opening present, the Bucks can continue strengthening their roster as they’re nearly a month away from wrapping up their 2020-21 regular season.

The Bucks were reportedly deemed the frontrunners to pick up Austin Rivers after getting bought out by the Oklahoma City Thunder, but that hasn’t come to pass nor has Rivers found a new home yet.
