Chris Copeland will sign with the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

While terms of the contract are unclear, Copeland's deal will reportedly be for one year. While the 31-year-old will bring some veteran depth to a young Bucks squad, it will be tough for him to earn enough playing time to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.

Michael Carter-Williams will be attending Team USA's minicamp in August.

MCW has almost no shot to make the final roster for the Rio Olympics in 2016, but hopefully he can learn a lot from this experience and bring some of that knowledge back with him to Milwaukee. He posted averages of 14.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 2.0 steals in 25 games with the Bucks last season, but he should be able to show some improvement next season with head coach Jason Kidd showing him the ropes.

Chris Copeland has reportedly verbally agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks.

Copeland and head coach Jason Kidd have a good relationship from when they were teammates on the Knicks, and Copeland will provide the Bucks with some outside shooting. However, he'll have a lot of competition for playing time in Milwaukee, so it'll be tough for him to earn enough minutes to become a relevant name in standard fantasy leagues.

Jabari Parker (knee) worked with a strength and rehab specialist while he was in Las Vegas.

He was also doing some on-court work, including some contact in the practice sessions. Parker suffered his ACL tear in December, so he should have enough time to be ready for camp. He'll be a risky pick in the middle rounds and should get the vast majority of his minutes at power forward.

Updating a previous report, Chris Copeland had a "strong workout and visit" with the Bucks on Tuesday but the Spurs and Thunder are still "in [the] mix."

ESPN's Marc Stein reported that Copeland was expected to finalize a deal with the Bucks this week, but that no longer seems like a given. No matter where he lands, Copeland won't offer fantasy owners more than a handful of 3-pointers in a reserve role.

The Bucks and free agent Chris Copeland are expected to finalize a contract this week, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

He had a physical on Tuesday and it seems there were no red flags, clearing the way for what will likely be a short-term, minimum-salary deal. The 6'8" Copeland gives coach Jason Kidd some 3-point shooting to bring off the bench but his situational use isn't likely to yield fantasy value.

The Bucks Tuesday meeting with Chris Copeland was reportedly a "get-to-know-you session."

The Bucks have been looking to bolster their outside scoring this offseason, and reportedly wanted to see if Copeland would be a good fit with the franchise. They do have an open roster spot, and Copeland certainly provides them with a player that can stretch the floor, although no deal is imminent at this point. Copeland would add some depth to the roster, but it's unlikely he'd earn enough minutes with Milwaukee to turn out any fantasy value in standard leagues.

Chris Copeland is in Milwuakee for a physical, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

Copeland will also meet with Bucks officials while in Milwaukee and it sounds as if a contract agreement is imminent as long as his physical checks out. If signed, the 31-year-old will help provide a young Bucks team with some veteran depth, but it's unlikely he'll see enough playing time to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues.

Giannis Antetokounmpo said that he wants to stay with the Bucks "forever."

"You never know how life turns out," Antetokounmpo said. "Three years ago I was thinking that I might be playing for Filathlitikos forever! All of a sudden, the draft emerged, the NBA, the Bucks and everything that followed. I don’t know how I’ll be feeling and thinking in two, three or more years. Right now I feel like I want to play for the Milwaukee Bucks forever." Bucks fans will be thrilled to hear the Greek Freak's passion about the franchise, and it will be a lot of fun to watch his game continue to grow under head coach Jason Kidd.

Rashad Vaughn continued his impressive Summer League run on Thursday, scoring 17 points to go with four rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers through 31 minutes of action.

Vaughn has been lighting it up at Summer League, but with Giannis Antetokounmpo, O.J. Mayo, and Jerryd Bayless ahead of him on the depth chart, there's just too much competition for minutes in Milwaukee to get too excited about his play at Summer League.

The Bucks arena financing deal passed a state senate vote 21-10 on Wednesday.

"Today's vote is a significant step forward in our collective effort to build a new sports and entertainment district in Wisconsin," Bucks president Peter Feigin said. "We appreciate the bipartisan leadership in Madison for bringing this transformative partnership one step closer to reality. We're optimistic that this financing package will receive support in the Assembly and look forward to working with state, county and city officials."There were plenty of concerns that the Bucks could move to Seattle or Las Vegas, but this is a big step in the right now. For now, it would be a surprise to see the Bucks leave Milwaukee.

Rashad Vaughn had his best game at Summer League during a 97-93 win over the Rockets on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with three rebounds, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He looked more focused on moving without the ball today, especially down the stretch. Vaughn has the potential to be a combo guard a la C.J. McCollum, but he's not nearly the prospect as the Portland guard is. He'll need an injury or two for noteworthy minutes.
Jul 15 - 6:21 PM

Tyler Ennis (shoulder) has not been cleared for shooting.

He is making progress from his right labrum surgery back in May. Ennis should be ready for camp as he'll compete for backup point guard minutes behind Michael Carter-Williams.
Jul 15 - 5:43 PM

The Milwaukee Bucks have expressed interest in restricted free agent Chris Copeland.

The Bucks will join three other reported teams who are interested in Copeland's services and the 31-year-old is expected to make his decision by Thursday. While Copeland is a solid rotational player, he'll need to land in a perfect situation in order to see enough playing time to make a difference in fantasy leagues.
