TyTy Washington’s long-term outlook with the Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks are clearly stocking up on long-term developmental pieces. They added an interesting cache of young players through the draft and free agency, including Washington. The second-youngest player on the official roster, Washington is yet another young piece that can be viewed as a long-term project who can hopefully become a long-term contributor for Milwaukee.

Washington could look to follow A.J. Green’s trail. Green played his rookie season with the Bucks on a two-way deal. After a solid year, he inked a standard deal with Milwaukee. If Washington’s performance catches some eyes when he does play, the Bucks could absolutely aim to keep him around on a standard deal beyond this season.

For many years now, the Bucks have been struggling to find a stable backup point guard. Whether it’s Washington, Wigginton, or another surprising name, the team will likely test out a handful of their younger players in the role. If one of them performs well, they could certainly earn the job for the long haul. It would be a huge boost if the future backup point guard is already in-house.

Could Washington end the recent revolving door or backup point guards in Milwaukee? It’s far too early to tell just yet, but the opportunity is up for grabs.
