Milwaukee Bucks’ backup point guard options – Lindell Wigginton
Two attributes that Lindell Wigginton has over any other candidate on this list are experience and familiarity. At 25 years old, Wigginton has experience at this level, and he’s been with Milwaukee for several years now, meaning he has familiarity with most of the players. If the Bucks want him to take on a much larger role next season, the option is certainly there.
While his playing time has always been brief, Wigginton has oftentimes shown glimpses of what he could bring to the table. As he’s shown in the G-League, Wigginton can be an excellent scorer and facilitator, having averaged 22.3 points and six assists this past season. Of course, translating G-League production to the NBA is difficult, but he’s shown he can do both of those quite well.
It would certainly be a terrific story if the Bucks were able to find their new backup point guard of the future from in-house. Yet, though he has an advantage with experience and familiarity, the job is far from solidified for Wigginton. He will have to duke it out with the other candidates listed here in training camp if he wants to potentially break through with the Bucks this coming season.
