With no player/team options, five Milwaukee Bucks will officially hit NBA Free Agency this off-season when teams are allowed to start negotiating on June 30.

Those players range from key starters to end of the bench guys, and obviously, it would be shocking if the team kept every single one and ran it back. Changes will be made, and some of these guys will be donning different jerseys next season. With all of that said, let us predict where each of the Bucks bracing for free agency will ultimately sign.

Danilo Gallinari - OKC Thunder

After a tremendous regular season, the OKC Thunder could not overcome the Dallas Mavericks' size in the postseason. They need to get bigger this off-season, and with two of their veteran centers in Mike Muscala and Bismack Biyombo set to enter the free agent pool, their front office might have to look at external options.

One such option could be Danilo Gallinari. The forward, having split last season between three teams, didn't dazzle anywhere, and he wouldn't be viewed as a game-changer for OKC. However, he could be a nice depth addition to this roster, giving them an experienced veteran capable of playing both of the forward positions and center.

Gallinari is no stranger to Oklahoma City, having played there during the 2019-20 season, where he was a key cog for them. He wouldn't be tasked with providing such production this time around, but such a young team could use a veteran who could serve as a depth piece while providing leadership. On a minimum deal, it would be low-risk.
