At one point, it seemed Milwaukee might not have room for Damien Inglis. Now, the Bucks – as long as they waive Chris Wright’s fully unguaranteed contract – can fit their second rounder on their 15-man roster.
Inglis will make $820,000 this season and $855,000 next season, both full guaranteed, and has a third $980,431 unguaranteed year, according to Basketball Insiders. Those are decent raises over the minimum salary, something the Bucks – who have cap room – could offer.
But that doesn’t mean Inglis is destined for a huge year. Inglis – behind Bruno Caboclo, Aaron Gordon, Noah Vonleh, James Young and Dante Exum – was the draft’s sixth-youngest player. Coming from France, Inglis is still pretty raw.
Don’t be surprised to see Inglis spend time in the D-League. At least he’ll be getting an NBA salary while he develops.
