Jae Crowder

This one is not as surprising. Crowder didn't show a ton during his season and a half in Milwaukee that would have teams lining up to get his signature. After taking a minimum deal last off-season, it felt like Crowder was betting on himself to earn a bigger deal this year, but that didn't work out. Yet, it feels like someone will inevitably pick him up on a minimum contract before next season begins.

Despite his subpar showing in Milwaukee, Crowder is a 3-and-D wing with boatloads of hard-earned experience on the biggest stage, having played in 115 career playoff games. On a team-friendly deal, someone could use him as a quality depth piece, giving them a battle-tested forward to beef up their frontcourt with a "break glass in case of emergency" player.

Jordan Nwora

A second round pick in 2020, Nwora flashed signs of potential during his first two-and-a-half seasons with the Bucks, but they ultimately moved him in the trade for Crowder back in 2023. The forward has since played for the Pacers and Raptors, showing signs of true potential but struggling to carve out a clear-cut role for himself.

At 25, Nwora is still young and has plenty of basketball left to be played. On a minimum deal, a team willing to take on a project player who could also serve as a depth piece at the forward position may be willing to take a flyer on Nwora. Toronto, where he last played after coming over in the trade with the Pacers involving Pascal Siakam, would be a good fit for him as they rebuild.
