Post-Draft Look at the Milwaukee Bucks’ Depth Chart
Post-Draft Look at the Milwaukee Bucks Depth Chart
Despite losing out on the top pick, the Milwaukee Bucks were able to snag the player they coveted most in the 2014 NBA Draft. Jabari Parker could turn around this franchise, and it seems to be a perfect fit for both sides. The Bucks will look to rebound from their 15-win season, so expect to see a much different look this year.
Here is an updated look at how the Bucks depth chart stacks up following the 2014 NBA Draft.
1. Brandon Knight
2. Nate Wolters
3. Ramon Sessions
This is an area the Bucks may be targeting in a trade. Knight’s name has come up, but they wouldn’t feel terrible about having him start at the point. Wolters and Sessions will have to battle it out to see who gets the majority of minutes coming off the bench.
1. OJ Mayo
2. Carlos Delfino
Signing Mayo did not work out for Milwaukee last season, and they would love to make a move to improve at SG. Delfino is coming off a long injury, but if he’s healthy there could be a nice spot for him coming off the bench for the Bucks.
1. Giannis Antetokounmpo
2. Khris Middleton
3. Damien Inglis
4. Chris Wright
Most people expect the Bucks to start Jabari Parker in this spot, but according to a source that spoke with ESPN’s Chad Ford, the plan is to keep Giannis Antetokounmpo at small forward while moving Parker over to the four. Kris Middleton will be second in command here, but Milwaukee also thinks rookie Damien Inglis will be able to make an immediate impact.
1. Jabari Parker
2. John Henson
3. Ersan Ilyasova
4. Johnny O’Byrant III
5. Jeff Adrien
Getting Jabari Parker was the ultimate goal, and the Bucks made it happen. Moving him to the power forward spot, which it appears they will do, creates an interesting dynamic as the Bucks are packed with big men. Sounds like they have some trades in mind that could bring in more guards. Henson or Ilyasova could be on their way out of Milwaukee.
1. Larry Sanders
2. Zaza Pachulia
3. Ekpe Udoh
4. Miroslav Raduljica
Larry Sanders seemed destined to be the anchor at center for the Bucks, but a difficult year has the Bucks contemplating his future with the team. If he can stay healthy and out of trouble he may be able to flourish with the new players brought in from the 2014 NBA Draft. The remaining guys will have to fight to earn time as Milwaukee is overloaded at the position.
