Nwora played 30 games in his first season with the Bucks on their way to winning the championship, featured in 62 games in his second season and has played 38 times this season averaging 6.0 points on 39.2% three-point shooting. He signed a $6.2 million deal before the start of the 2022/23 NBA season.
