After months of making tweaks, the Milwaukee Bucks have officially filled out their 18-man roster ahead of the upcoming 2023-24 NBA season.
General Manager Jon Horst finished things off by filling the team’s third and final two-way slot by signing guard Ty Ty Washington. Barring an unforeseen trade, the roster is now set. Though there may not be any massive changes compared to the beginning of the off-season, the Bucks made a handful of overall nice moves to tweak the roster.
Let’s break down the depth chart.
Evaluating Milwaukee Bucks’ depth chart after TyTy Washington signing
Point Guard: Jrue Holiday, Lindell Wigginton (Two-Way deal), TyTy Washington (Two-Way deal), Jazian Gortman (Camp Deal)
Shooting Guard: Grayson Allen, Malik Beasley, Pat Connaughton, A.J. Green, Andre Jackson Jr.
Small Forward: Khris Middleton, MarJon Beauchamp, Chris Livingston, Thanasis Antetokounnmpo, Omari Moore (Two-Way deal)
Power Forward: Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jae Crowder
Center: Brook Lopez, Bobby Portis, Robin Lopez, Drew Timme (Exhibit-10?)
Not much has changed since the previous iteration of the depth chart breakdown. Washington is another option for the team at backup point guard, which remains the biggest hole on the roster at the time being. Washington is an exciting name to add to the backcourt, especially on a deal that is extremely team-friendly for the Milwaukee Bucks.
The former first round pick from last year possesses plenty of untapped potential, and due to the team’s need for another point guard, Washington could earn some legitimate minutes. Yet, he will have to earn those minutes against Lindell Wigginton, another two-way signing, in training camp. Jazian Gortman was a two-way candidate, but Washington now has the edge over him.
Drew Timme is on the roster, but it’s unclear in what capacity. Timme’s agency recently posted a photo of the big man signing a contract with the Bucks, but it has not been revealed what kind of deal. It’s either an Exhibit 10 or a straight-up camp deal, but Timme is currently not listed on the team’s payroll on Spotrac. Time will tell how, but Timme will be in town in some capacity.
Youth is the biggest thing that stands out about Milwaukee’s depth chart, as they have a handful of younger contributors, especially after adding Washington to the mix.
