The Bucks are coming off a disappointing season where they failed to meet playoff expectations. They have a very talented young core featuring Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker, Khris Middleton, John Henson, Michael Carter-Williams, and Rashad Vaughn. They also signed Greg Monroe and traded for Grieves Vaquez last year. Jason Kidd plans on playing Giannis more at PG next season which may open up other spots that need to be filled. The Bucks will most likely use their draft picks to add shooting, size, and depth.
(Updated 7/8/16) The Bucks had perhaps the most shocking pick of the draft when they selected Thon Maker with the 10th pick. Maker was projected to go all over the first and second round. He is as much talented as he is raw, but will add to the length of the young Bucks. He has a really high ceiling and Milwaukee could prove to be a nice place for him to grow. At the 36th pick the Bucks selected one of my favorite players in the draft, Malcolm Brogdon. He has a great IQ and will immediately add shooting and defense.
