News: Marshall was claimed off waivers by the Bucks on Saturday, ESPN reports.
Impact: In grave need of a ballhandler, the Bucks scooped up Marshall just one day removed from the Lakers jettisoning the point man in order to free up cap space. He'll settle in behind starter Brandon Knight, competing against second-year pro Nate Wolters for reserve minutes. In 54 games with the Lakers last season, Marshall averaged 8.8 dimes and 0.9 steals per game, while knocking down 71 treys in all. However, the rest of his line -- 8.0 points (on 40.6 percent shooting) and 2.9 rebounds in 29 minutes nightly -- left something to be desired.
News: Wolters posted six points (3-6 FG, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 19 minutes during the Bucks' 79-74 win versus the Warriors at the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday.
Impact: Wolters averaged 8.4 points (44.7 FG, 16.7 3Pt, 53.9 FT), 3.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.0 steal in five summer league games. Expect him to continue to play in a reserve role and see ample playing time for the Bucks in 2014-15.
Chris Wright - #15 - Forward - 6'7" - 218lbs
News: Wright recorded 16 points (4-5 FG, 8-9 FT), eight rebounds, and three blocks in 28 minutes during the Bucks' 79-74 win versus the Warriors at the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday.
Impact: Wright averaged 7.6 points (44.4 FG, 87.5 FT), 4.2 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks in five summer league games. He's unlikely to earn a considerable role in 2014-15, but it's possible he'll earn a little bit of time, if he continues to improve.
News: Antetokounmpo averaged 17.0 points (46.2 FG, 37.5 3Pt, 73.7 FT), 5.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks in four games at the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: The Bucks have been experimenting with Antetokounmpo at point guard, and despite his 4.5 turnovers per game it's possible that he continues to operate as the point guard going into the 2014-15 season. Regardless of what position he winds up playing, he's likely to play a major role in his sophomore season.
News: Marshall was waived by the Lakers on Friday, but the team is interested in bringing him back on a new deal if he clears waivers, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: One of the NBA's best passers, Marshall averaged 8.0 points and 8.8 assists in 54 games (45 starts) for the Lakers last season. His offensive game inside the arc is quite limited, however, as he shot just 40.6 percent from the field. Marshall should generate some interest as a potential waiver claim, but if he's available, the Lakers will likely look to bring him back as insurance behind Jeremy Lin, as veteran Steve Nash has had trouble staying healthy.

News: Antetokounmpo recorded 20 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, and two blocks in 37 minutes during the Bucks' 100-71 loss versus the Spurs at the Las Vegas Summer League on Wednesday.
Impact: Antetokounmpo did commit six turnovers, but it was another impressive showing for the soon-to-be sophomore. Expect him to continue to receive plenty of minutes going forward in the summer league as he looks to improve headed into 2014-15 and build chemistry with rookie teammate Jabari Parker.

News: Marshall ended the Lakers' third Summer League hitout with 11 points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 24 minutes Monday.
Impact: Marshall is only averaging 8.7 points and 3.7 assists in the three Summer League games played so far, although he has played 26 minutes per game. He has looked inferior to rookie Jordan Clarkson in all three games and his fantasy value appears to be on the wane with Clarkson excelling and Jeremy Lin now in town.

News: Marshall improved upon his below-par first Summer League game, scoring 11 points (3-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), with four rebounds, four assists and two steals in 27 minutes.
Impact: Marshall still couldn't get his shot falling, but at least got to the line and dropped a few three-point shots as well. With the play of Jordan Clarkson, Marshall, whose contract is unguaranteed for 2014-15, could find himself on the outer if his play doesn't improve.

News: Wolters had his ankle taped at Saturday's practice, and said afterward that his mobility wasn't great during Friday's game in the Las Vegas Summer League, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Wolters scored seven points on 3-of-10 shooting over 26 minutes in the Bucks' opening game of the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday. He may be in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Suns, but the injury does not seem particularly serious. At the moment, Wolters is the favorite to serve as Milwaukee's backup point guard behind starter Brandon Knight.
News: Antetokounmpo recorded 17 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 30 minutes during the Bucks' 70-68 loss versus the Cavaliers at the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday.
Impact: Antetokounmpo started at center, and while he did commit five turnovers, he had a solid game overall. Expect him to continue to see plenty of playing time going forward in the summer league.
News: Marshall scored just four points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt), adding five assists, three rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes Friday.
Impact: Marshall handled the bulk of the minutes at guard along with rookie Jordan Clarkson, but couldn't get his shot to fall. With the addition of Jeremy Lin via trade and the impressive showing of Clarkson, Marshall's fantasy value will likely be stunted.
News: Wolters (ankle) will play and start for the Bucks on Friday during their opening game of the Las Vegas Summer League, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Wolters wasn't able to practice Thursday after he tweaked his left ankle. He stands a lot to gain by playing in the summer league since his playing time last season was enhanced by the Bucks' conglomerate of guard injuries. The 23-year-old has a chance to solidify his spot as the backup point guard behind Brandon Knight, and being able to play Friday is certainly a step in the right direction for that to happen.
