As the Milwaukee Bucks prepare to make their final decisions ahead of the NBA Draft, we look back on all of the players who worked out or interviewed in recent months.

It’s almost decision time, and as a result this makes now the perfect time to piece together the threads of what the Milwaukee Bucks might do when they’re on the clock in Thursday night’s NBA Draft.

The Bucks are owners of the 17th and 48th picks heading into the draft, and there’s a very strong possibility that the players who ultimately become the newest Bucks will have been among the 93 reported to have worked out or interviewed with the team in the last two months.

Although the Bucks likely met with some players at the NBA Draft Combine who went unreported, and have visited private workouts and pro days hosted by agents, the majority of their probable targets are likely to have visited Milwaukee or at least have been publicly reported as having met the team at the Combine.

In recent years, Thon Maker and Rashad Vaughn were both drafted largely off the strength of strong performances in workouts in Milwaukee, while although Malcolm Brogdon didn’t visit for a workout last summer, he was said to have wowed Bucks personnel when they met him at the Draft Combine.

While there are occasions where teams get turned down on workout invitations and still draft a player if he’s available, it seems unlikely the Bucks will follow such a strategy this year.

As reported by Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the team’s new general manager Jon Horst had the following to say in recent days when asked about the prospect of drafting someone the Bucks haven’t had a chance to work out:

"“I think it would be hard,” Horst said when asked about the likelihood of the Bucks picking a player who didn’t work out for them. “That would be hard, not impossible. It depends on you don’t know who is going to fall in the draft, the level of talent. Again, that’s where the groupings and draft plan come into order.”"

Having tracked Milwaukee’s interviews and workouts since the team was eliminated from the playoffs, now seemed like the time to compile a list of the players likely in contention, while projecting where they might fall or how they could interest the Bucks.
