Rayjon's current status
The Milwaukee Bucks apparently have a spot for a 2-way contract player and Rayjon is seen as one of the 3 candidates for this spot.

Third two-way contract candidate – Rayjon Tucker

Last but certainly not least, Rayjon Tucker is looking to find some stability after floating between the G League and NBA levels last season.


It was with the Herd where Tucker really shined the most to start the season as the Bucks took a keen eye to the athletic combo guard after he initially signed with their Summer League squad in Las Vegas and going undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. In his 16 appearances with the Herd last season, Tucker averaged 23.8 points on .496/.386/.690 shooting, 4.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists.


Tucker’s sparkling play certainly caught the attention of NBA scouts and it was Tucker’s performance at the 2019 G League showcase that eventually led to him signing a multi-year deal with the Utah Jazz midway through the 2019-20 season.

From there, the 23-year-old got very limited minutes during his time in Salt Lake City as he averaged 3.1 points while shooting 46.5 percent from the field and 17.6 percent from three over his 20 appearances with the Jazz. Tucker was eventually dealt to Cleveland over the offseason ahead of his salary guarantee date where he was subsequently waived.

Now, Tucker is preparing for the G League bubble where he will suit up for the Agua Caliente Clippers. Tucker certainly has a flair of explosiveness that follows him wherever he goes and perhaps another strong string of performances again could get him back on the NBA level, depending on how his play is in the bubble.

RE: Rayjon's current status
The NBA is probably going to let all teams add a 3rd 2-way contract player to their rosters. You would think that 30 additional roster spots would open up an opportunity for Rayjon.

It's done-

76ers Sign Rayjon Tucker to Two-Way Contract
Posted: Jan 22, 2021
FACEBOOK
TWITTER
Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey announced today that the team has signed Rayjon Tucker to a two-way contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Tucker earned an NBA Call-Up last season with the Utah Jazz. He appeared in 20 games with Utah after starting the season with the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA G League. In 16 games (all starts) with the Herd, he averaged 23.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 33.8 minutes per game. Tucker was named NBA G League Player of the Month for December 2019 and was also selected to the Eastern Conference Midseason All-NBA G League Team.

The 23-year-old Charlotte native finished his college career at UA Little Rock in 2018-19 after transferring from Florida Gulf Coast. In 30 games (all starts) with Little Rock, Tucker averaged 20.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 steals in 36.6 minutes per contest. He was named to the All-Sun Belt Second Team.

Per NBA rules, teams are permitted to have a maximum of two players under two-way contracts in addition to the players under standard NBA contracts. A two-way player for the 76ers will provide services to the team’s G League affiliate – the Delaware Blue Coats – but may not be active for more than 39 NBA games, a prorated amount down from 50 at the start of the regular season.

RE: Rayjon's current status
I have seen Rayjon's name in some 76'ers box scores on the internet recently, but he has yet to log any minutes. Thus, I assume he is on their bench, but has not gotten on the court. If he is on the bench, he is making, at least, the NBA minimum for that time which is a pretty good deal.

RE: Rayjon's current status
News: 3 days agoTucker will join the Delaware Blue Coats ahead of the 2020-21 G League season in Orlando.

Spin: Tucker signed a two-way contract with the 76ers last week, and he'll now turn his attention toward preparing for the four-week bubble in Orlando. The 23-year-old failed to make any appearances with the parent club since joining the team.

Hopefully, Rayjon will get chance to shine with the Blue Coats. Should end up in Phili eventually.

RE: Rayjon's current status
Rayjon was the leading scorer on the Blue Coats and led them to the G-League Finals (they did lose). He is now on the 76'ers roster, but I don't believe he has played yet.

RE: Rayjon's current status
Rayjon played 3 minutes, on 3/27/21, and scored 5 points. His average of 4.5 points a game is slightly better than his teammate, Isaiah Joe (4.0 ppg).
