The Milwaukee Bucks waived forward Mamadi Diakite. Diakite's contract was partially guaranteed for $100,000. That amount will go on the Bucks cap sheet, unless Diakite is claimed off waivers.
Diakite started his rookie season with Milwaukee on a Two-Way contract. His deal was converted to a standard contract in late-April.
In 14 NBA appearances (one start), Diakite averaged 3.1 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.1 minutes per game. In the G League Bubble, Diakite averaged 18.5 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game for the Lakeland Magic. The Bucks did not field a G League team during the 2020-21 season.
The Bucks also signed Javin DeLaurier to a training camp contract. DeLaurier went undrafted out of Duke at the 2020 NBA Draft. He then attended training camp with the Charlotte Hornets before playing for the Greensboro Swarm in the G League Bubble. DeLaurier also spent part of the 2020-21 season playing professionally in Canada for the Niagara River Lions.
