The Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday assigned guard Rashad Vaughn to the Westchester Knicks of the NBA Development League, pursuant to the flexible assignment rule.

Vaughn has appeared in nine games for the Bucks this season, averaging 6.0 points and 1.2 rebounds in 14.5 minutes per game.

“We need to get him some playing time…as much as possible,” head coach Jason Kidd said.

The NBA D-League’s flexible assignment system enables the eight independent NBA teams to assign players to the NBA D-League for development or rehabilitation from injury. Upon receipt from an independent NBA team, the NBA D-League will identify any NBA D-League team willing to accept the assigned player. The assigning independent NBA team will then choose the destination for assignment between those teams. If no NBA D-League team is willing to accept the assigned player, he will be assigned to one of the hybrid affiliate teams pursuant to a lottery.
