Stauskas, who was selected with the No. 8 overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft, has averaged 6.8 points over 335 career NBA games. He most recently appeared in regular-season action as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2019.
After spending the 2019-20 season with Baskonia of the Spanish ACB, Stauskas returned stateside, signing a training camp deal with the Milwaukee Bucks but was waived just days before the 2020-21 NBA season began.
The NBA and NBA G League are still ironing out the details of the upcoming season, including the location of an isolated bubble for the league, similar to the NBA's restart and WNBA's 2020 season. Stauskas reportedly is among a number of notable veterans set to take part in a unique G League season that is expected to have a number of call ups.
