Bucks guarantee AJ Green’s salary for 2024/25

The USD they guaranteed AJ Green$2,120,693 salary for the 2024/25 season, according to HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto (via Twitter).

As our list of early salary guarantee dates shows, Milwaukee would have had to waive Green by July 8 to avoid being in the 24/25 salary cap crisis. Scotto’s report is confirmation that the two sides did not agree to postpone that date.

Green, who went undrafted out of Northern Iowa in 2022, signed with the Bucks on a two-way contract in July 2022 and was promoted to the regular roster with a new multiyear deal a year later. He played sparingly as a rookie, but saw a bit more action in his sophomore season, averaging 4.5 points and 1.1 rebounds in 11.0 minutes per game in 56 bench appearances.

A long-range shooter, the 24-year-old made 41.2 percent of his career three-point attempts (113 of 274). The Bucks lost their best three-point shooter (Malik Beasley) in free agency, so Green could be leaned on more in his third NBA season for floor-spacing purposes.

With Green’s salary now locked in, the Bucks have 13 standard contracts guaranteed through 2024-25 with the second-year point guard. Andrew Jackson holding a partial guarantee on his minimum wage contract. All three two-way contract slots are occupied.

As for Green, he remains under contract for one more season beyond this one — his $2.3 million salary for 25/26 would become guaranteed if he isn’t waived by July 8, 2025.
