Best options for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2022 NBA Draft: Bryce McGowens, Nebraska Cornhuskers

Bryce McGowens is another wing player that could do wonders for the Milwaukee Bucks at 24.

The 6-foot-7 guard showed tremendous athleticism and finesse around the rim during his lone season with the Nebraska Cornhuskers. As just a freshman, he averaged 16.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. McGowens is not the best shooter, but he has the potential to be a good one, and all of his other strong suits make up for that. He also creates shots for himself. He has a lanky frame and a good motor on the defensive end, which would translate well to the next level.

If drafted, I could see Mcgowens playing more forward than guard since has size and length for a wing and great athleticism. McGowens knows how to put the ball in the bucket, plain and simple. He scored 24 plus points in four games for Nebraska this season, and also punched in seven impressive 20-point games for the cornhuskers. Bryce McGowens is a prospect who screams NBA, and he will likely be available when it is Milwaukee’s turn to pick. This is a guy who has great potential and could offer the Bucks some serious punch as a wing player, which is something they desperately need to address this offseason.
