How do you view Rashad Vaughn’s future with the Milwaukee Bucks?

Adam McGee (@AdamMcGee11): It’s far too early to make a definitive call on that, but Vaughn is fearless. If he can get smarter, and be reined in a little by Milwaukee’s coaching staff, there’s no reason why his scoring wouldn’t make him an elite Sixth Man type of guy.

Ti Windisch (@TiWindisch): It seems like he’s a Sixth Man of the future, but given that he’s only 18 and seems to have a boatload of potential, maybe John Hammond and Jason Kidd think he’s got more in store than that and drafted him accordingly.

Antony Ludwig (@Agropelter): He probably won’t ever be a starter, but with Middleton’s ability to play the 3 or even the 4 (for stretches), he should be able to get more minutes than your average backup. He’ll be a sixth man, possibly even a Sixth Man of the Year award-winner.

Jordan Treske (@jtresk26): I think Vaughn’s got a bright future ahead of him in Milwaukee. It was definitely an upside pick so there’ll be some definite ups and downs in the foreseeable future, but over time, I think Vaughn could be a valuable piece a couple of years down the line.

Brett Abramczyk (@RW23_): Rashad has the chance to become something special with the Bucks. At 18, he’s definitely shown he’s got the tools and talent to make his game work in the NBA, and he gets to work with an excellent coaching and developmental staff. We won’t really know where his future’s headed for another few years.

Paul Bressler (@PaulBressler24): I think I’m like the majority of Bucks fans. We don’t really know what to make of the pick. The team took a relativity unknown prospect, especially to those of us that don’t follow college basketball all that closely. However, Vasquez is going to take the bulk of the minutes, so Vaughn is unlikely to be a factor right now anyway.

Justin Woodard (@WoodardJustin90): If he can make jump shots like I’ve been hearing then I believe he can be a viable knockdown shooter coming off the bench either alongside or ultimately replacing O.J. Mayo. Guys that can consistently knock down the jumper are becoming more and more valuable in the NBA.
