Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Greatest Scorers In Franchise History

12 of 31

20. Desmond Mason

Mason arrived in Milwaukee as part of the often, and understandably, vilified trade that saw Ray Allen end up in Seattle. Little did anybody realize when the deal was initially executed, but Gary Payton, the other piece received by the Bucks in the move wouldn’t stick around long. That left Mason as the sole return.

Although Mason was never going to be able to live up to that kind of billing, he was perfectly serviceable in two spells with the Bucks.

A former Slam Dunk champion, Mason had an explosive leaping ability which often allowed him to create opportunities to score that he had no real right in getting. Hence, Mason never really had any problems in getting his share of points.

Mason spent two and a half years with the Bucks following on from the trade, although he would come back to play a further season in Milwaukee as his career wound down too. Overall, Mason averaged 14.3 points as a Buck, with 15.8 points per 36 minutes.
