The Milwaukee Bucks need to address their wing depth in 2021 NBA Draft

During Milwaukee’s championship run, the help from their wings was one of the most important pieces.

Players such as Khris Middleton, Pat Connaughton, and P.J. Tucker were key contributors to the title run on both ends of the floor. However, with the offseason in full swing, Milwaukee could be looking to add some depth at the wing. End-of-the-bench players such as Axel Toupane and Justin Jackson could be on the way out after playing for the team on two-way deals, leaving the Bucks looking for more bodies. Therefore, they could be looking to replace that depth in the draft.

With players such as Connaughton and Middleton playing massive roles on the wing, it is hard to say if a rookie will see much time in his first season. However, if a wing is brought in during the draft, they could have a great opportunity to learn behind a brilliant offensive player in Middleton and a utility man off the bench in Connaughton.

Certainly, depth at any position is important. Depth at the wing isn’t a glaring need right now, but it would be a good option for Milwaukee to utilize their pick with. The Bucks will add depth at the position and will gain the ability to allow a young wing to develop, possibly into a larger role in the coming seasons as they garner more experience.

Potential candidates: Herbert Jones, Kessler Edwards, B.J. Boston
