Milwaukee Bucks target: Colby Jones (Wing – Xavier)

Height: 6’6″ / Weight: 200 lbs / Wingspan: 6’8″

Another prospect the Bucks could look into is Colby Jones. Jones is a very intriguing all-around player… he can handle the ball, pass, finish, defend, and hit threes off the catch. He’s not the most explosive athlete or perimeter scorer off the dribble, but he’s crafty and smart. He reminds me of Malcolm Brogdon and could be beneficial for the Bucks to have as a sturdy defender and shooter who can also provide some much-needed ball handling to take some pressure off the main guys. It’s hard to not see him being at least a solid role player with his skillset.

Milwaukee Bucks target: Sidy Cissoko (Wing – Ignite)

Height: 6’7″ / Weight: 225 lbs / Wingspan: 6’10”

Cissoko is a very versatile wing defender with his length. He is another player who looks like he could contribute on the defensive end right away at the next level with his on-ball defense. On offense, he can get downhill or get out in transition and run, and he also has solid potential as a shooter. He probably doesn’t have a crazy-high ceiling (much like most of the players in the late-first, early-second round range of the draft), but his defense would be very valuable to the Bucks, and if his shot is okay he should be a really nice role player.
