Milwaukee Bucks Sign Myles Powell to Two-Way Deal

New G-League guard joins the Bucks, replacing Jaylen Adams?

It appears as though the Milwaukee Bucks have been paying attention to what’s going on in the G-League. Per The Athletic’s Shams Charania, they have signed guard Myles Powell from the New York Knicks G-League affiliate (the Westchester Knicks).

With Mamadi Diakite being recalled by the Bucks, it looks as though Powell will take the two-way spot from Jaylen Adams, who hasn’t been with the Bucks since being made unavailable due to the league’s health and safety protocols and also might be in some hot, non-basketball water.

During his stint in the G-League bubble, Powell was averaging 28.1 minutes, 17.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4 assists in 13 games while also shooting 44.6% from three. Powell is a four-year guard at Seton Hall who won Big East Player of the Year and was picked for First Team All-American for the 2019-20 season. At a glance, Powell can shoot both off the dribble and off of screens, which isn’t a bad trait to have for a guard. This looks to be more depth for Milwaukee for practice who will see the court during garbage time, but you never know what can happen.
