Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Greatest Scorers In Franchise History

2 of 31

30. Todd Day

It’s not difficult to understand what the Milwaukee Bucks were hoping to achieve by drafting Todd Day with the eighth overall pick of the 1992 NBA Draft.

Day was a standout shooting guard in college, thriving as an Arizona Razorback from 1988-92. By the time he departed for the NBA, Day had even surpassed a legendary Buck to become the all-time leading scorer at Arkansas. Of course, that man was Sidney Moncrief, and in the most optimistic fashion imaginable, the Bucks were likely hoping to strike that type of gold again when they selected Day.

Both in his time with the Bucks and elsewhere, Day would never blossom into the type of star that Moncrief was. That’s not to say that the Illinois native couldn’t play though, and that knack for scoring that he showed in college, certainly translated to the NBA.

As a young player feeling his way into NBA life, Day was unafraid to shoot with Milwaukee. For his three seasons with the Bucks, the former Razorback averaged 14.1 points per game. He was eventually traded to Boston along with Alton Lister for Sherman Douglas, and in many ways it’s surprising that his career tailed off so quickly after that.
