The Milwaukee Bucks saved approximately $3 million in salary and luxury tax by signing Georgios Kalaitzakis to an NBA rookie minimum contract.

Milwaukee signed Kalaitzakis to a three-year deal and used part of their taxpayer mid-level exception to allow the deal to last for longer than two years. Kalaitzakis was the 60th overall pick and played for Panathinaikos last season.

If the Bucks had used the roster spot on anybody else, Milwaukee would have had a combined bill of approximately $3 million.
