15. Richard Jefferson

After giving up multiple pieces to bring Jefferson to Milwaukee, the wing shooter would only remain a Buck for a single season before being traded on to San Antonio. That can’t be viewed as a reflection on how Jefferson put the ball in the basket though.

Jefferson started all 82 games of the 2008-09 season, and with a combination of strong finishing off slashes to the basket and reliable jump shooting, particularly from deep, the former Arizona Wildcat was a frequent standout on the box score.

Jefferson arrived in Milwaukee off the back of the best scoring season of his career with the New Jersey Nets, and wasn’t far away from matching it in his one and only season with the Bucks. In spite of giving him strong talent to acquire him, the Bucks moved on quickly though.

Jefferson averaged 19.6 points per game for his 82 games with the team, the type of mark which he would never approach again as he was reduced to a role player at his various stops from that point onwards.
