Stone’s $948,163 contract for 2014-15 would have become guaranteed had the Raptors retained him past Monday. He signed with Toronto last September after spending two seasons with the Denver Nuggets.
Stone, 25, is a 6-foot-6, 200-pound combo guard from UTEP who signed with the Nuggets as an undrafted free agent after the lockout ended in 2011.
He did two stints in the D-League while with Denver, playing three games with the Idaho Stampede in 2011-12 and six games for the Iowa Energy in 2012-13.
Stone was on the Raptors’ roster all season, but played in only 21 games, none after March 14. He was inactive for all seven games of Toronto’s first-round playoff loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
Stone scored 18 points with 20 rebounds and 12 assists in those 21 games, playing 120 minutes. He was 7-for-17 overall, 2-for-8 from 3-point range and 5-for-9 at the foul line.
The Bucks will have three other guards on their summer league roster in Las Vegas: Ben Brust, who went undrafted out of Wisconsin last month; along with C.J. Williams, who spent all of last season with the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the D-League; and another former Wisconsin Badger, Jordan Taylor, who played for Virtus Roma of Italian Liga A the last two seasons after getting summer league tryouts with the Atlanta Hawks in 2012 and the Raptors in 2013.
