The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as athletic Bucks guard Pat Connaughton states his desire to take part in the Slam Dunk contest for a future NBA All-Star Weekend.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, Pat Connaughton wishes to take part in a future Slam Dunk contest, Donte DiVincenzo says he’s feeling 100 percent after his injury-riddled rookie season, and much more.

Connaughton is certainly capable of throwing down an eye-popping slam dunk, given his high-level athleticism, as he has shown during his time in Milwaukee and he could give the dunk contest the shot in the arm it needs, maybe even as soon as next year in Chicago.
