Before joining the Bucks last offseason, Ingles spent the first eight seasons of his NBA career as a member of the Jazz.
During his time in Utah, Ingles averaged 8.6 points per game on 44.9 percent shooting, including 40.8 percent on three-pointers. He also recorded 3.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 25.7 minutes per contest.
In his final year with the Jazz, Ingles suffered a season-ending knee injury and the forward was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers ahead of the league’s trade deadline. Ingles was unable to play for the Blazers and chose to sign with the Bucks in the summer of 2022.
Ingles missed the beginning portion of the 2022-23 season because of the injury and was limited to 46 games as a member of the Bucks after returning to the court.
