Facing a deadline to get down to 15 players, the Milwaukee Bucks have a tough decision to make with regards to the team's final cut.
Of the 16 players currently on the main roster, big man Christian Wood and guard Tim Frazier are currently on training camp contracts, theoretically making them the most expendable. However, it may be D.J. Wilson, drafted No. 17 overall by the Bucks just last year, who ends up being the odd man out, league sources told RealGM's Keith Smith.
A 6-foot-10 power forward, Wilson struggled to make an imprint in the pro ranks as a rookie. The Michigan product played just 71 total minutes in 2017-18.
Wood has reportedly locked down a roster spot after averaging 17.3 points and 9.3 rebounds over his final three preseason outings. Frazier has been effective as well, averaging 6.3 points and 5.3 assists in the three preseason games in which he saw between 14 and 19 minutes of playing time.
The Bucks have reportedly been active in trade calls, and could seek a buyer for Wilson before deciding whether to cut bait on their recent first-round pick or part ways with Frazier, a more experienced player but ultimately one in whom the team has invested considerably fewer resources.
