Ranking the young Milwaukee Bucks: No. 7 – Lindell Wigginton, 25
At 25 years old, Lindell Wigginton is the oldest player on this list. He’s been with the Bucks or their G-League affiliate for several years now, and he’s still looking to carve out a role for himself. With the Bucks in need of a backup point guard, perhaps his opportunity could be coming. Yet, he lands here due to his age and how he compares to the rest of the candidates.
Could Wigginton be a fine backup point guard? He’s shown a knack for scoring and shooting from all over the court, and his passing is solid. A player like that could certainly help the Bucks, but the guard does have some holes in his game. Notably, he’s a tad undersized at 6-foot-2, which places him at a disadvantage defensively. Even in the Summer League, players were going at him.
Sometimes, the perfect situation can do everything for one’s development. Look at Jevon Carter’s production before and after he came to the team. If the Bucks do give Wigginton a legitimate shot to be their backup point guard, perhaps he could follow a similar path. Even then, at 25 years old, it’s unclear how much potential has yet to be unearthed when stacked up against the others here.
