MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks have assigned injured forward Jabari Parker to the Wisconsin Herd of the NBA's G League.
Parker's assignment means he can try to practice with the Herd as he recovers from a devastating left knee injury. He injured his ACL last Feb. 8 and underwent surgery six days later.
The Bucks also said Monday they have requested waivers on guard Gary Payton II and have signed guard Sean Kilpatrick to a two-way contract.
Payton was signed to a two-way contract on Oct. 17 and appeared in 12 games (six starts) with the Bucks this season. He averaged 2.5 points and 1.4 rebounds per game. The 6-foot-4 Kilpatrick played in 16 games with the Brooklyn Nets this season before being waived on Dec. 7.
