Gutierrez was waived by the Bucks on Wednesday. As expected, Gutierrez was unable to crack the final, 15-man roster, and it's now increasingly likely that Johnny O'Bryant will occupy the final roster spot, as Milwaukee also cut Josh Powell and Marcus Landry on Wednesday. Gutierrez has a history with coach Jason Kidd, playing under him in Brooklyn as well as last season in Milwaukee, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Gutierrez is back in the Bucks uniform at some point later in the season, if the team were to suffer an injury or free up a roster spot.
Gutierrez is averaging 12 minutes on the court after four preseason games. Gutierrez's playing time is sure to drop almost completely once the regular season starts. Currently fourth on the Bucks' depth chart behind Michael Carter-Williams, Greivis Vasquez, and Jerryd Bayless, Gutierrez is on the fringe of a roster that needs to cut at least one player by the start of the regular season. Look for Gutierrez to continue seeing minutes in the next two preseason games as he plays for a spot on the 15-man roster.
