8 of 10

AJ Green - 6

Green has had a great shooting season at 42.3 percent from the field and 40.8 percent from deep. Now, as a standard member of the Bucks, he may see time during the NBA Playoffs, especially with Beasley's shooting struggles. He is the perfect candidate to take those minutes from a struggling Beasley as a shooting specialist.

He has hit big shots this season. In dying moments of tight games, whether his defense has improved enough and his lack of experience will show is what will define his playoff impact. He did miss the last two games of the regular season with a left ankle sprain and is receiving treatment, hopefully to be ready come playoff time.

Andre Jackson Jr. - 5

Jackson Jr. has shown glimpses of what could be a real rotation piece for the Bucks moving forward, but since Rivers' arrival, he has seen minutes hard to come by. Almost the opposite to Green here, defensively, he will bring it when he plays, but he has never been a great shooter. If he plays a few minutes and just slows down his opponent, he has done his job. Still, his lack of minutes and real consistent experience this season is a worry.

Danilo Gallinari - 3

Danilo Gallinari was the final roster piece from the buyout market and saw a lot of the floor early in late February and early March but has slowly found his way out of the rotation. His 3-point percentage is at 33 percent, which is not great for a 38 career percent shooter.

With the rotation shortening, I can't see him playing much. If he does play, I think the impact will be virtually none and would be better going with the younger guys on the roster who can bring more energy.
