With all three star players injured in the NBA playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks are in a unique position going forward.

Father time is catching up to their veteran core, and their youth movement to build for the future hasn't exactly panned out. Even then, they still boast a fearsome duo of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard, which only means they're still in win-now mode for years to come. However, questions remain, such as who can they add via the 2024 NBA Draft to elevate this team to the next level.

The Milwaukee Bucks head into an intriguing off-season

While the Lillard acquisition significantly bolstered the Bucks' offense, some key areas still need improvement, as exposed in the team's series versus the Indiana Pacers. Whether through the draft or via the trade market, the Bucks will certainly be looking for three-point shooting, defensive versatility, and high-energy role players who are ready to play.

It’s unclear if the Milwaukee Bucks are going to use their picks, to begin with, but should they opt to go the developmental route. There’s a wealth of young talent, even in this ostensibly shallow draft, just waiting to be unearthed and ready to help out any contending roster.

Here, we'll explore some potential first-round picks who could seamlessly fit alongside Giannis' dominance and Lillard's scoring prowess, addressing the Bucks' remaining needs and creating a truly formidable championship contender.
