Milwaukee Bucks’ all-time team built around Giannis: Brian Winters, Jon McGlocklin, Michael Redd, Jack Sikma – Key reserves

In picking former Bucks who could come off the bench and offer Antetokounmpo support, there are plenty of great options to choose from.

To maximize Antetokounmpo’s impact, fit will again remain most important, though. In Giannis’ case, that means shooting needs to be prioritized.

Brian Winters, whose No. 32 hangs from the rafters at Fiserv Forum, would make for another guard who could slot in at the point while still playing mostly off ball alongside Giannis. Winters was a famously silky smooth shooter, who would undoubtedly reap the rewards of that stroke in this team.

Another jersey retiree, Jon McGlocklin, is an obvious choice due to his sharpshooting prowess. Jonny Mac could comfortably slot in on the wing, and would punish opposing defenses whenever open shots come his way.

Michael Redd would offer the rotation another efficient shooter, but also a player who possesses more of a scorer’s mentality. Redd would seem like a strong fit to relieve some of the workload facing Antetokounmpo, without disrupting the superstar’s own game.

Lastly, when it comes to backing up the center spot, Jack Sikma is the obvious choice. Sikma was unusual in his own era for the way he spaced the floor from the frontcourt with his shooting, and his incredible touch and well-rounded offensive game would nicely complement what Antetokounmpo has to offer too.
