Thanasis Antetokounmpo – Milwaukee Bucks

This one shouldn’t be too far-fetched. While he hasn’t had a clear-cut role over the past few years, Thanasis Antetokounmpo has stuck around. He’s served as an energizer both on and off the court and is a great motivator for Giannis Antetokounmpo. If he signs another minimum deal, it would not be the worst use of Milwaukee’s 15th roster spot, especially if it keeps Giannis smiling.

Goran Dragic – Miami Heat

Goran Dragic will likely end up on one of those, “Players you forgot played for the Bucks,” lists in 15 years or so. That’s not a knock on Dragic, just that his time with the team was short and that he did not play too much. Dragic recently told 560WQAM that it would be a no-brainer for him to finish his career in Miami, where he played some of his best basketball. It would not be surprising at all if he ends up there very quickly once NBA free agency starts.

Meyers Leonard – Los Angeles Lakers

The Bucks signing Meyers Leonard late in the season came out of left field. It made some sense, as they needed center depth, but Leonard was not a name most had in mind. Still, he provided a piece of depth, as he was a fine third center who did not see much time. The Bucks likely will not prioritize bringing Leonard back, but a team like the Lakers, who worked Leonard out last season before the Bucks added him, could look to target him. LA will need bodies in the frontcourt, and Leonard could be a rather cheap addition.
