The Greek rookie guard appeared in nine games for the Bucks this season, averaging 1.8 points per game.

Veteran swingman Matthews is back with the Milwaukee Bucks. He is marking his second stint with the team. The American athlete averaged 7.4 points in 67 starts for the club during the 2019-20 season.

"Wesley is a proven veteran whose shooting, defense, and experience will help us," said Milwaukee general manager Jon Horst. "He is familiar with (coach Mike Budenholzer's) system and our team. We're excited to have him back with us."

The 35-year-old Matthews will provide depth for a Milwaukee backcourt led by Jrue Holiday. Matthews spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, averaging a career-low 4.8 points in 58 games (10 starts).

Matthews has career averages of 12.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 849 games (739 starts) over 12 NBA seasons with seven teams. He ranks 24th all-time with 1,729 3-point baskets.

Matthews' high scoring average was 16.4 during the 2013-14 season for the Portland Trail Blazers. He also averaged 15.9 points in two other campaigns for Portland.
