Archetypes the Milwaukee Bucks should target: Secondary Ball Handler

Having a guy that can handle point when Jrue isn’t on the floor or when he’s not initiating the offense has been something the Milwaukee Bucks have sorely missed, even during the championship run, Jeff Teague was the primary backup point guard. Outside of Jrue, the Bucks really lack someone who can bring the ball up the floor and organize the half court offense.

Yes, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo both take turns initiating offense, but that is often not an ideal scenario. For Giannis, starting him at the top of the key as a ball handler is something the Bucks have rightfully moved away from. While Khris is a good passer, he lacks the ball handling to be a true secondary ball handler. Additionally, he is much more dangerous running around screens and running actions in the flow of the offense rather than setting up the offense.

With George Hill struggling with injuries and on the floor when healthy and Jevon Carter seemingly unfavored by Budenholzer due to inexperience, the Bucks would do well to look at other options for this archetype. Here are some ideas:

  • TyTy Washington – 6’3″ PG, Kentucky
  • Ryan Rollins – 6’3″ PG, Toledo
  • Kennedy Chandler – 6’1″ PG, Tennessee
  • Blake Wesley – 6’4″ PG, Notre Dame
