According to Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Milwaukee Bucks fired Tyler Zeller.

The 28-year-old center had a non-guaranteed, $1.9 million contract with the Bucks for the 2018-2019 season. This summer the team acquired Brook Lopez, who will likely be the starting center. The Bucks also have John Henson and Thon Maker.

In this preseason Tyler Zeller appeared in four games and was averaging 5.8 points and 2.5 rebounds per game.
