Former Boston Celtics shooting guard, James Young, was cut by the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday, before making his preseason debut.

Young played one season of college basketball for the Kentucky Wildcats before being selected with the 17th overall pick by the Celtics in the 2014 NBA Draft. 

During his time at Kentucky, Young finished second in UK single-season freshman history with 82 three-pointers made on the season. He was named SEC Freshman of the Week two times, earned second team All-SEC honors, SEC All-Freshman team honors, and was named to the NCAA Final Four All-Tournament team. 

He spent the majority of his rookie season playing in the NBA Development League for the Celtics affiliate team, the Maine Red Claws. 

In July, Young became a free agent and joined the New Orleans Pelicans Summer League team, however left the team without a contract. On September sixth, he signed a training camp contract with the Milwaukee Bucks before being waived on October fifth. 

This has been Young's third team in the past four months, proving he has yet to find his niche in the NBA. Could Young's time in the league be over, or will he get one more chance by a team who is willing to develop his skills?
