After a flurry of action earlier this week, the Milwaukee Bucks reportedly hold the no. 42 and no. 60 selections in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Talk about a start to this NBA offseason for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Off the heels of reportedly acquiring both Bogdan Bogdanovic and Jrue Holiday in massive blockbuster deals that fortify the top of their roster, the Bucks have been aggressive in coming out of the gate ahead of the 2020-21 season. The Bucks have left no stone unturned in the multiple pieces and assets they parted ways to get those two players, including trading away the 24th overall pick in the draft to the New Orleans Pelicans.

Have no fear, though, as the Bucks still remain in the draft after exchanging the 42nd and 60th overall picks with the Pelicans as part of the Holiday trade as Eric Nehm of The Athletic reported Tuesday morning.

Not only does give the Bucks a couple of bites at the apple in terms of rebuilding up their roster and some level of internal development, they also will have cheap contracts to simply fill out their barren roster at the moment.

The Bucks haven’t had a second round pick since the 2017 NBA Draft when they were part of a draft night trade that essentially saw them acquire the draft rights to Sterling Brown, now slated to be a restricted free agent.

So without further ado, let’s look at previous selections throughout draft history that could provide a litmus test of what the Bucks are getting with their newly acquired picks.
