Report: Bucks signing Meyers Leonard, who hasn't played since uttering antisemitic slur in 2021

Feb 21, 2023

The Milwaukee Bucks are signing free-agent forward Meyers Leonard to a 10-day contract, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

The 30-year-old forward hasn't played in the NBA in the more than two years since he uttered an antisemitic slur during a Twitch stream while he was a member of the Miami Heat. In the aftermath of the incident, the Heat banned Leonard from the team indefinitely on March 21, 2021, before trading him to the Oklahoma City Thunder a week later.

The Thunder announced at the culmination of the trade that Leonard would not be an active member of the team. Oklahoma City subsequently released Leonard, and he hasn't played in the NBA since. Hampered by a shoulder injury, he played just three games in the 2020-21 season prior to the incident.
