The Milwaukee Bucks have petitioned the NBA for an exclusion to clear the remaining $10.5 million on Mirza Teletovic’s contract off the team’s salary cap, league sources told ESPN.

The Bucks are expected to meet the criteria and receive the cap relief based on Teletovic’s career-ending injury.

The one-year anniversary of Teletovic’s final game with the Bucks was on Wednesday, clearing the way for the Bucks to apply for $3.5 million in annual cap relief in 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21.

Teletovic was forced to retire because of a life-threatening pulmonary condition. The Bucks used the waive and stretch provision to spread the $10.5 million cap hit across the three seasons.
