Nwora is the lone Bucks pick to be confirmed at this point as Merrill will come to Milwaukee by way of the blockbuster Jrue Holiday trade.
Still, with both Milwaukee bound, the Bucks have added some genuine 3-point threats to their roster and around their reshaped foundation of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Holiday. Both Merrill and Nwora have 497 3-pointers between themselves on the collegiate level.
With the assets and pieces the Bucks had to give up in order to get a pair of second round picks to fill out their internal core, getting those picks certainly come cheap in the aggregate. But as we’ll get into shortly, the ready-made qualities that both Nwora and Merrill bring to the table could be instrumental in filling out their depth going into next season just as Sports Illustrated’s Jeremy Woo posited in his final thoughts on the draft:
"“I also give the Bucks credit for ending up with two potential back-end rotation guys in Jordan Nwora (45) and Sam Merrill (60) after gutting their roster in trades for Jrue Holiday and (allegedly but now unclear) Bogdan Bogdanovic.”"
So without further ado, let’s go into how draft experts rate the Bucks’ selections of both Jordan Nwora and Sam Merrill and hear from the newest Bucks themselves.
