The Milwaukee Bucks will look far different this coming season than they did when they hoisted the Larry O’Brien Trophy a few short months ago.

While their core players will remain intact, general manager Jon Horst spent the offseason adding perfect complementary pieces to shore up the team’s depth. Whether it was by trade, free agency, or the draft, the former Executive of the Year winner explored all avenues to improve the roster and had a majorly successful offseason in the process.

In fact, one could argue that this roster is better constructed than the one that just helped the team end their 50-year title drought last season, but that will be up for debate until they finally take the court in 2021-22.

While it is certainly subjective, it might not be too far-fetched. Wanting to get a better understanding of this newly formed team, let us rank every player currently set to be on the 2021-22 Milwaukee Bucks.

Ranking the 2021-22 Milwaukee Bucks — No. 17/16: Georgios Kalaitzakis and Sandro Mamukelashvili

These first two should not be too controversial as either is yet to play in an actual NBA game after being taken by the Bucks in the 2021 NBA Draft.

Sandro Mamukelashvili was taken 54th overall by the Bucks, and there was very little known about him at the time. Fans would get a better look at the four-year man from Seton Hall in the Summer League, where he showed glimpses of potential. In addition to a knack for scoring, the big man showed off a pristine passing ability, which is interesting for a player standing at 6-foot-11. Mamukelashvilli will likely not see much playing time with the Bucks this year, but the future looks intriguing for the rookie.

The same sentiment holds true for fellow rookie Georgios Kalaitzakis, who was taken with the 60th pick in the draft. Fans anxiously awaited to see what the 22-year-old could bring to the table as there was little film on him, and he did not disappoint in the Summer League. While his time was brief as he was limited by an injury, Kalaitzakis showed potential with his scoring, passing, and defense. The team is clearly high on him after they inked him to a three-year deal recently, and time will tell if it pays off.
