Report: Former Wisconsin player D'Mitrik Trice agrees to Summer League deal with NBA team
Former Wisconsin star D’Mitrik Trice will have a chance to impress NBA teams later this month.
According to Jon Chepkevich, Trice has agreed to play for the Milwaukee Bucks’ Summer League team.
D’Mitrik Trice (@BadgerMBB) has committed to join the Milwaukee Bucks for NBA Summer League.

This isn’t an official NBA contract, but it is an opportunity for Trice to show off his skillset while he has the attention of NBA evaluators. He went undrafted in the 2021 NBA Draft last week.
He’s a bit undersized, but Trice is a good distributor and playmaker. If he isn’t able to earn an NBA roster spot, he could still land a professional deal in the G-League or overseas.
Trice was excellent over a five-year career with the Badgers. As a senior, he scored a career-high 13.9 points per game and added 3.4 rebounds and 4.0 assists per contest.
He earned All-Big Ten honors twice and was apart of three NCAA Tournament teams with the Badgers. He almost certainly would have made a fourth if not for the pandemic canceling the 2020 NCAA Tournament.
The Bucks’ first Summer League game is on Aug. 9.
