John Hammond announced that the Milwaukee Bucks requested waivers on Terrence Jones today. Jones appeared in just three games for the Bucks and played just over six minutes of complete garbage time. Even with Beasley out for the 17 games before last night’s win over the Pistons, Jones failed to reach the court in any substantial way. In fact, I couldn’t even find a useful picture of him in his Bucks’ uniform to include for this article.
Milwaukee’s roster is now at 14 players. While they can still add someone to the roster, anyone who was waived after the March 1st deadline would be ineligible to play for Milwaukee in the playoffs. This means someone like Rodney Stuckey, whom the Pacers waived earlier this week, couldn’t play in the postseason.
While Jones’ exit isn’t a significant loss, it may be an indication Malcolm Brogdon’s injury could keep him out longer than just last night’s game. The lack of guard depth was telling, with Rashad Vaughn seeing his most significant action in weeks. Lineups with Matthew Dellavedova, Jason Terry and Vaughn, as was the case to start last night’s second quarter, aren’t exactly ideal.
