Josh Okogie

After their slew of free agent signings, perhaps the biggest question left for the Milwaukee Bucks is who will be the fifth starter. Josh Okogie might not be the perfect fit for the job, but as the team eyes targets still up for grabs, perhaps they could swoop in and bring him in. At the bare minimum, he'd be a nice depth piece at the two-guard spot, but he also has the potential to play a nice role.

Okogie's biggest strengths come on the defensive end, where he's a flat-out pest to his opponents. The 6-foot-4 guard is incredibly versatile, able to switch between matchups and take on players who are larger than him. A player like that could do the Milwaukee Bucks plenty of good, helping them add a stout perimeter defender.

The prominent concern with Okogie is his nightly offensive output. He's averaged just 6.3 points while shooting a poor 29.3 percent from three for his NBA career; those numbers don't exactly jump off the page. With such poor 3-point shooting, it may be tough to have Okogie on the floor consistently with Giannis Antetokounmpo, who relies heavily on the floor spacing he gets from shooters.

Despite the concerns offensively, if the Milwaukee Bucks can snag Okogie on a minimum contract, they should. The perimeter defense he brings would outweigh the poor offense, giving this team a versatile chess piece that can be used as a sparkplug. At 25, he's also still very young and has plenty of good basketball left to be played.
