5. Tyler Ennis
Tyler Ennis went from being an end-of-the-bench guy to looking like a legitimate NBA player at times last season. Making another jump from being a sometimes legitimate NBA player to a consistently legitimate NBA player is very possible for Ennis, and it would be a boon for the Bucks.
He’s currently slated as the third point guard on the team, which hurts his standing here. If Michael Carter-Williams had been traded and the backup spot was open for Ennis, he could find himself much higher. As is, his opportunities might be limited.
Still, based on the improvements he made from his rookie to sophomore season it would make sense for Ennis to continue to get better, even if his minutes remain limited. The spikes in both his three-point percentage and field goal percentage are especially promising.
If Ennis became anything close to a reliable three-point shooter, he’ll find himself getting more minutes. That and some confidence from simply being in the NBA for a while now could make Tyler Ennis look like a much improved player in 2016-17.
