Tucker has averaged 4.4 points and 4.6 rebounds per game this season with the Rockets, his fourth with the team. The 35-year-old, who has been in the league since 2006, is set to become a free agent at the end of the season. Kurucs has appeared in just 11 games for Houston this season, his third in the league. He was sent to the Rockets in the blockbuster deal that moved James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets in January.

Augustin has averaged 6.1 points in more than 19 minutes per game this season in Milwaukee, mostly off the bench. The 33-year-old, who went No. 9 overall in the 2008 draft to the Charlotte Hornets, signed a three-year, $21 million deal with the Bucks before the season. Wilson has appeared in just 12 games this season, his fourth in the league.

Craig signed a deal with the Bucks before the season started after his initial three-year stint in the league with the Denver Nuggets. He appeared in just 18 games in Milwaukee and averaged 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per contest.
