The Milwaukee Bucks utilized one of their two-way slots to sign Ryan Rollins, a former second-round from the 2022 NBA Draft, earlier this week.

Rollins, 21, comes aboard after brief stints with the Golden State Warriors and Washington Wizards. Most of his time will likely be spent with the Wisconsin Herd in the G-League, giving him a chance to work on his game alongside other young players. Yet, he can also receive playing time with the Bucks until the playoffs begin, so let's break down the current depth chart.

Analyzing updated depth chart for the Milwaukee Bucks after signing Ryan Rollins

Point guards - Damian Lillard, Patrick Beverley, TyTy Washington (Two-way), Ryan Rollins (Two-way)

Shooting guards - Malik Beasley, Pat Connaughton, AJ Green, Andre Jackson Jr.

Small forwards - Khris Middleton, MarJon Beauchamp, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Chris Livingston

Power forwards - Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jae Crowder, Danilo Gallinari

Centers - Brook Lopez, Bobby Portis

This list could change once more, given that the Bucks do have another available two-way opening. Looking at the depth chart, it would make sense for the team to bring in another big man to provide depth behind Brook Lopez and Bobby Portis. It will be interesting to see which direction they go with that final opening to put the finishing touches on the roster.

Rollins joins a point guard depth chart that features Damian Lillard, Patrick Beverley, and fellow young two-way player TyTy Washington. With both Rollins and Washington being point guards on two-ways, perhaps some fiery competition could be ignited between them as they attempt to stick around for the long haul.

For now, not much changes for Milwaukee. On the other hand, the Herd will get a young player with a ton of upside. If Rollins can dial in and unearth some of that two-way potential he possesses, there's no reason he couldn't stick with the organization long-term and even earn a spot in the big leagues. The guard could very well follow the AJ Green blueprint.

In short, this is a low-risk, high-reward move that could pay dividends down the line, especially if the Bucks continue their recent trend of cycling through backup point guards constantly.
