The Milwaukee Bucks reached the regular-season roster limit of 15 players by releasing three players today.
The Bucks dismissed forward Marcus Landry, guard Jorge Gutierrez and forward Josh Powell. All three entered training camp with non-guaranteed contracts and were considered long-shots to make the team.
Landry is a Milwaukee native and was trying to return to the NBA after being out of the league since 2009-10. The former Wisconsin Badger scored five points and pulled down three rebounds in the fourth quarter of the Bucks 106-88 win over Minnesota in exhibition play at the Kohl Center on Tuesday night.
The 26-year-old Gutierrez spent time with the Bucks last season, but had three other point guards ahead of him on the depth chart.
The 32-year-old Powell served as the Houston Rockets player development coach last season.
All 15 remaining players on the Bucks roster have guaranteed contracts and are expected to fill out the opening day roster. The Bucks open the season next Wednesday at home against the New York Knicks.
