CHARLOTTE, NC - MARCH 28: Khris Middleton /

The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as Khris Middleton received plenty of praise and respect with his ranking in Sports Illustrated’s Top 100 list.

In this latest edition of the Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we take a look at the latest Bucks related details from Sports Illustrated’s Top 100 series, important Wisconsin Herd news, and more.

In light of the events of recent days, the Herd will likely be eager to make further notable additions to their roster for their inaugural season, and the Bucks can play their part in that by using the team’s open two-way contract spot wisely.

For any news on how the Bucks and the Herd approach that situation, and much more, check in with this column every morning and stick with us at Behind the Buck Pass.
