Kris Dunn

Again, the Bucks could very well lose Patrick Beverley in free agency. If they do, one of the names near the top of their wish list to replace him should be Kris Dunn. Milwaukee's front office is quite familiar with Dunn, as Yahoo Sports' NBA insider Jake Fischer reported before the Bucks got Patrick Beverley that he was one of the names the team was eyeing.

Dunn would be a nice fit for the Bucks. The 6-foot-3, 205-lb. guard has excellent size, which he uses to be a stout defender on the perimeter. The former fifth-overall pick isn't the youngest player on the market, having just turned 30, but he could still be of great use to this team due to his defense, passing and ability to lead the bench brigade when Damian Lillard catches his breath.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with Dunn in free agency. Though he showed signs of being a great contributor for the Utah Jazz, he will likely not be among their bigger priorities in a room full of ball-handling guards. If he's looking for a new home and is willing to take a prove-it deal, he'd be a nice pickup for the Milwaukee Bucks, especially if Patrick Beverley walks.

Milwaukee's previous interest in him cannot be ignored here.
