Milwaukee Bucks: 30 Greatest Scorers In Franchise History

3 of 31

29. Charlie Villanueva

It’s tough to believe now, as he’s become one of the NBA’s more lumbering veteran presences, but Villanueva (who is amazingly still only 31) was once one of the league’s most exciting rookies. After being selected by the Toronto Raptors as the seventh pick of the 2006 draft, Villanueva went on to make the All-Rookie First Team.

The following summer saw the former UConn Husky arrive in Milwaukee, as T.J. Ford headed north of the border in exchange. Villanueva would partner up with Andrew Bogut to make for a Bucks team who seemed to be heading for a bright future.

Although a whole host of factors eventually contributed to stop that from coming to pass, Villanueva was unafraid of putting the ball in the hoop.

The New York native had the three best seasons of his career as a Buck, as a power forward with a solid rebounding instinct and also the ability to step out and score by stretching the floor. Villanueva’s Milwaukee time saw him average 13.5 points per game, breaking down as 19.2 points per 36 minutes.
