Ranking the 2021-22 Milwaukee Bucks — No. 7: Grayson Allen

These next two names will create some controversy, and honestly, they could be switched around depending on the person. Considering he has yet to play a game with the team, Grayson Allen will be listed here, although he has the potential to move his way up as the season moves forward. The Bucks brought Allen aboard via a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies, and he has the potential to immediately make an impact with the team.

Whether he starts or comes off the bench, Allen will see significant minutes. His sharpshooting, solid scoring, and intensity should help him fit seamlessly with the team. If all breaks right for the soon-to-be fourth-year guard, Allen could surprise NBA fans and potentially have the best season of his career with the reigning NBA champs. He detailed his excitement about the trade and how he is ready to get to work and how well he believes he will fit.

Ranking the 2021-22 Milwaukee Bucks — No. 6: Donte DiVincenzo

While it was a turbulent ride, Donte DiVincenzo put together the best season of his young career with the Bucks in 2020-21. It was his first year as a full-time starter, and he took advantage by averaging career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, and several other categories. The biggest issue was his consistency, as the guard could not sustain any rhythm for what seemed like the entire season. It did not help that he went down in the team’s first round matchup and was out for the remainder of the postseason with an injury.

As he looks to bounce back from injury, DiVincenzo will be entering a contract year with the Bucks, and all eyes will be on him. If he is healthy by opening night, he will likely reclaim his spot in the starting five due to his previous experience there, and he could take another massive leap just as he did last season. The guard has improved with each passing season, and if he can tune up a few areas of his game, he could be destined for a breakout campaign as he looks to prove his doubters wrong. The biggest question right now remains his health, but some light should be shed on that in the weeks leading up to the new season.
