Report: Bucks waive guard Nate Wolters

Friday January 9th, 2015

The Milwaukee Bucks have waived guard Nate Wolters, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Multiple reports indicate the Bucks are expected to sign forward Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract to fill the roster spot vacated by Wolters.

The signing of Martin, 37, could happen on Friday.

Martin tweeted the following on Thursday afternoon: "Great day. Excited to be back in the court. Would like to thank the Bucks for the opportunity to play again. #letsgo"

The Bucks acquired Wolters in a trade after he was selected with the No. 38 overall pick in the 2013 draft out of South Dakota State by the Washington Wizards.

Over 11 games this season, Wolters averaged 2.3 points and 0.9 assists in 12.9 minutes per game, down from 22.6 mpg last season.

Wolters' playing time has decreased after Milwaukee signed guard Jerryd Bayless and claimed guard Kendall Marshall off waivers in July.

The Bucks (19-18) are in sixth place in the Eastern Conference. They host the Minnesota Timberwolves (5-29) on Friday.
