The Milwaukee Bucks finished off the 2020-21 season by winning their first title in 50 years, but they have no plans to stop at just one.

As the focus starts shifting toward next season, the front office is gearing up for what is looking to be an interesting free agency period. For starters, they will have to address several questions on the roster internally with an abundance of key players potentially eligible to enter free agency and potentially take their talents elsewhere.

No matter how things shake out there, this team will have to retool ahead of next season to defend their title. Winning the championship this season has potentially made Milwaukee a compelling destination for soon-to-be free agents, and they could have some interesting targets to pursue this offseason.

With all that being said, here are five ideal free agent targets the Bucks should make a run at once free agency begins on August 2.

The Milwaukee Bucks could pursue Langston Galloway in 2021 NBA Free Agency

With a few key pieces in their backcourt potentially eligible to hit free agency, the Bucks could be looking to shore up their guard depth, and Langston Galloway could be an option.

The guard had a down year with the Phoenix Suns as he was largely an afterthought in the rotation, playing in just 40 games for a career-low 11 minutes on average. While those numbers certainly do not paint Galloway in a good light, his numbers from the season prior do a better job of reflecting the player that he is, as he averaged 10.3 points while shooting 43.5 percent from the floor and 39.9 percent from 3-point territory. Galloway’s high-octane offense could be used to revamp this second unit, providing them with a solid shooter and scorer.

Following his down year with the Suns, Galloway will enter unrestricted free agency, likely looking for a new home where he can carve out a role for himself. With his productivity at a career-low last season, the 29-year-old will likely not command a hefty deal in free agency and would be a target that is low-risk, but also one with high upside for the Bucks. If they could get him on a deal that is team-friendly, it could prove to be an underrated signing if the Bucks were to lose someone like Bryn Forbes.
