9. Dale Ellis

Wings who shoot over 40 percent from behind the arc have always been a hot commodity in the NBA, and Dale Ellis was no exception to that rule. Ellis is another in the long line of big time bench scorers who have a place reserved in Bucks history.

Ellis made a name for himself as a deadly scorer with his play in both Dallas and Seattle, and when the Bucks decided to trade their go-to, instant offense, bench scorer Ricky Pierce to the Supersonics, there literally wasn’t another player in the NBA better suited to filling his role than Ellis.

On the wrong side of 30, Bucks fans could have been forgiven for thinking that they might be unlucky enough to get the beginning of the Georgia native’s decline, but there were no such issues. Whether it was from distance or in close, Ellis was a reliable scoring option for Milwaukee.

Buoyed by 41.3 percent shooting from distance during his time as a Buck, Ellis averaged 15 points per game and 20.7 points per 36 minutes.
