What an off-season it has been for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Following a brutal first round collapse vs. the Miami Heat, General Manager Jon Horst understood that changes had to be made, and he got to work. Horst retooled this roster significantly while he also managed to keep several core pieces intact. On paper, the roster is better than last season’s, and that’s thanks to Horst. That said, let us rank every move made by Milwaukee this off-season – exhibit 10 deals and camp contracts will not be included.

No. 14 – Signing Omari Moore to a two-way deal

After going undrafted in 2023, Omari Moore inked a two-way deal with the Bucks immediately. While he’s unlikely to play a prominent role with the team this coming season, Moore could be a nice piece to stash in the G-League and let develop over the next year to see what he is made of, as there’s certainly potential there.

Moore’s greatest attribute is his scoring. During his final two years at San Jose State in college, he averaged 15.5 points while shooting 44.7 percent from the floor and 48.8 percent from distance. On top of that, he was a quality facilitator, having averaged 4.7 assists in that same timeframe. He’s got the potential to be a nice scorer if he can translate those skills to the next level.

The Bucks should always be in the hunt for reserve scoring and big wings. Moore, who is 6-foot-6, fits both. The likelihood of him being able to make an impact this season is quite slim, but in a year or two, things could be much different. Moore will likely get some good reps in the G-League with the Wisconsin Herd. If he thrives there, the Milwaukee Bucks will undeniably take notice.

To be clear, just because this is last does not mean it’s a bad move. It lands here because Moore is the least likely name here to suit up for Milwaukee consistently and make an impact.
