As the week of the 2019 NBA Draft has officially arrived, who are the guard prospects that could get the Milwaukee Bucks’ attention at No. 30?

With all 30 teams gearing up for the NBA Draft on Thursday, the picks, potential trades, and wider frenzy it creates heading into free agency make this one of the most exciting times of the year for NBA fans.

After a 60-win season and a Conference Finals defeat to the eventual champions, the Milwaukee Bucks will be hoping to do anything they can to improve, or at the very minimum come back at the same level, through the draft and free agency.

Boasting the East’s best regular season record, Milwaukee find themselves in unfamiliar territory as they’ll have to wait until the 30th and final pick of the first round before getting their chance to make a selection.

As a result, the variance in players who may or not be available at that point in the draft, and the general selection of prospects who the Bucks could opt to spend that pick on is arguably greater than it’s been in a long time. The further down the draft board you go, the less consensus you tend to find between NBA teams and draft pundits, meaning pinning down Milwaukee’s pick is a real challenge.

If nothing else, over the run-up to the draft, here at Behind the Buck Pass we hope to offer up a guide to the prospects that Jon Horst and the Bucks’ front office are likely to be choosing from when it’s their turn to pick.

We’ll do so by highlighting prospects across four articles, centered around different roles and archetypes, starting with this look at the guard options.

As a class, this year’s draft is certainly lacking in point guards, and with Ja Morant, Coby White and Darius Garland all likely to be in the mix for top-5 picks, the scarcity of guards will certainly be apparent by the time the Bucks are on the clock.

With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the point guards and combo guards who may end up being available to Milwaukee.
