Bucks Summer League squad goes 1-4

The Milwaukee Bucks’ Summer League team did not put together a strong showing.

For starters, Thon Maker did not look good in his two games. Maker looked like he hadn’t played in a while, which was probably true. However, his lack of rebounding and ability to catch the ball are causes for concern. He looked nowhere near his playoff performance, but hopefully he can return to form during the season.

Rashad Vaughn looked confident enough in his scoring ability that he could play backup minutes this season. However, this was his third summer league, so he should’ve been extremely confident. With that in mind, it’s probably best to take his performance this summer with a grain of salt and wait to see how he plays during the season.

Both Bucks’ draft picks played well during Summer League. D.J. Wilson showed off his versatility on both ends of the floor, and showed glimpses of his three-point range. Sterling Brown played solid on both offense and defense. Both look like they could contribute at times during the season.

The two players the Bucks inked to two-way contracts, Bronson Koenig and Jalen Moore, did not play very well. Koenig especially looked rough. He did not shoot as well as he would have liked, and looked lost on the defensive end. Moore showed flashes of shooting range, however he just could not play well enough to have a consistently positive impact on the game.

Outside of good performances from Vaughn, Wilson, and Brown, the Bucks definitely didn’t impress in Summer League.
