What will the Bucks now do in the second round?

After taking Johnson 23rd overall, the Milwaukee Bucks will now have the chance to add another piece via the 33rd pick, and they will have options.

For wings and forwards, a few names to go after are Bobi Klintman, Tyler Smith, Kevin McCullar Jr. and Harrison Ingram, among others. The center market is less bountiful, but a couple of names still on the board are Kyle Filipowski and Adem Bona. If the Milwaukee Bucks do want to add depth at one of their two prominent positions of need, they will have the opportunity.

Milwaukee could also trade the pick and shake up this roster a bit, which is what many thought they'd do with the first-round pick. With several notable players, including Brook Lopez, Pat Connaughton and Bobby Portis, all being mentioned in trade rumors, the front office may be plotting a move to patch some of the roster's prominent flaws. Rather than another gamble, that may be the way to go.

Unlike the first two questions, the good thing about this third one is that it will be answered soon, as the second round of the draft is scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Let's hope whatever the Bucks do with that pick is not as controversial as what they did with the 23rd selection.
