NBA Draft 2016: Milwaukee Bucks Draft Picks, Holes & Needs

There was a ton of optimism around the Milwaukee Bucks going into this past season. Those expectations went out the window early as the team finished just 33-49 and didn’t make the playoffs. As the NBA Draft hits on June 23, the Bucks have the No. 10 pick and need a huge draft to get back to a point where they can be at the .500 mark again. There are things to be happy about with Jabari Parker, Greg Monroe and Giannis Antetokonumpo but it would be a pleasant surprise to add to that combo.
Jerryd Bayless is the team’s biggest free agent and he averaged just 10.4 points a game to be sixth on the team. He is a solid backup point guard however and the team would hate to lose him. There are places where the team can improve though especially with Parker going into his third season and Monroe in his second season in Milwaukee. Monroe averaged 15.3 points and 8.8 rebounds a game this past year while Parker averaged 14.1 points a game.
The team needs another big man and experts are thinking Utah’s Jakob Poeltl is the man that Milwaukee is going to want. He is a scoring and rebounding machine and putting him in with Monroe and Parker would give the Bucks a great frontcourt moving forward. There are also two picks early in the second round for Milwaukee to add to their depth. The Bucks could make a run at the playoffs next season if they make the right pick in the draft.
