The Milwaukee Bucks remain one of the top threats to make it out of the Eastern Conference and get to the Finals this season. The Celtics still have to be considered the top team in the conference with their otherworldly offense, but Milwaukee is not far behind.

It is easy to forget that Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard have been teammates for less than six months. They are still working to build chemistry, but so much progress has already been made. There is a lot to like about the Bucks' upside going forward.

To keep their championship window with this current group open, Milwaukee will of course be doing their best to bring in a healthy crop of free agents this summer. These three players should be near the top of their wish list.

1. Josh Richardson

One of the top reserve guards for the Miami Heat, Josh Richardson brings a little bit of everything to the floor. With solid scoring, playmaking and defensive chops, he is one of the more underrated backup guards in the league right now.

Many may not see him this way simply because he is the near definition of a career journeyman. Josh began his career with the Heat, then spent time with the Sixers, Mavericks, Celtics, Spurs, Pelicans, and now he is back in Miami.

In reality, Richardson is a low-cost option that can fill a lot of holes in a backup role. Since the Bucks will only have enough money to sign players to minimum deals this summer, he is one option they should be going after the hardest.
