If they hadn’t picked Vaughn, who would you have liked to see as a Buck out of those who were available at 17?

AMcG: I was calling for Looney all along, but I honestly didn’t expect Bobby Portis to still be on the board at the time the Bucks selected. The fact that they could have traded down and maybe even picked up another asset in the end, and still selected Portis is incredible. He would have been an interesting addition.

TW: Bobby Portis. He’s a guy who was said to have top ten talent in this whole draft, who could’ve came in and started right away most likely. It hurts my very soul that he ended up in Chicago.

AL: Probably Bobby Portis, but mostly because I don’t think there was anyone better.

JT: I was a pretty big fan of Bobby Portis. I think he would have been a good fit, especially defensively as he fits in perfectly in the system that coach Jason Kidd has established. He’s a solid offensive player too, but I think unless he would have been played at the 5, he would’ve had a hard time cracking the rotation regularly.

BA: On my board, I had either Rondae Hollis-Jeferson or RJ Hunter up next for the Bucks. They both seemed like players who become very special if they could work out a few small kinks in their game. I wanted a little more upside at this pick, and these two players have a ton, to me.

PB: Well since my sources are confirming that Kristaps Porzingis was not available, R.J. Hunter would have been a solid selection. The Bucks have a plethora of big man and didn’t need another in Bobby Portis. Hunter would have provided the team with spacing while also being able to initiate the offense. They got that in Vasquez instead.

JW: The Wisconsin fan in me was hoping they would take Sam Dekker, but after hearing Andy Katz during the NBA Draft on Thursday night it didn’t seem like Dekker wanted to stay in Wisconsin. Bobby Portis was another one available that I believe would’ve contributed immediately.

Next: Will The Vasquez Deal Prove To Be A Good One?
