The Milwaukee Bucks will not exercise the fourth-year team option on guard Rashad Vaughn, league sources told Basketball Insiders. As a result, Vaughn will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Vaughn was the 17th overall pick in the 2015 draft by the Bucks. The 21-year-old guard is coming off his best game of the season against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. Vaughn scored 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting from beyond the arc in 20 minutes.

Vaughn entered the NBA after his freshman season at UNLV where he averaged 17.8 points and 4.8 rebounds in 32.3 minutes per game. The 6-foot-6 guard shot 38 percent from beyond the arc during his freshman season.
