Prior to the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend, Amjyot Singh, arguably India's best basketball player, had indicated that he had signed with the Wisconsin Herd, the G-League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Not only had he confirmed it to NBA.com/India but he had also posted this on Instagram:

Then, on Monday afternoon (near midnight Tuesday IST), the franchise confirmed the news:

As is quite visibly evident, the announcement mentions that Amjyot has been added to the roster since Xavier Munford will be representing USA Basketball in round 2 of the 2019 FIBA World Cup qualifiers.

The announcement does not confirm or indicate Amjyot's future with the team when Munford returns from national duty. As things stand right now, Munford would not be available to the team at least until February 25th (United State's final group game in the second round of the qualifiers).

Amjyot's first chance to play for the team comes on Thursday morning when they face the Raptors 905 (G-League affiliate of the Toronto Raptors).
