1. Danilo Gallinari

Danilo Gallinari has been a steady long-range shooter for his entire career. It's how he's lasted 16 years in the league, as he's made 38.1 percent of his triples throughout his career.

He's always had a steady hand from distance and has always been a sniper from deep.

Up until now.

Gallo has made just 14.3 percent of his treys this season, as his shooting stroke has been quite the vanishing act. For a player who was always limited, who is also playing on his last legs, it's extremely difficult to justify his minutes, even at his current average of just nine minutes.

And we don't even need to talk about his defense because even he doesn't. 

But in all seriousness, the dude is food on that end of the floor. Opposing players lick their chops when they see him as the primary defensive assignment. 

He got exposed by several players in Milwaukee's primetime matchup against the Boston Celtics, as Jayson Tatum got the best of him, while Payton Pritchard also absolutely cooked him on the perimeter.

If Gallinari isn't going to be able to make his shots or defend, he's essentially going to be unplayable for the Bucks in the postseason.
