The NBA Draft is less than a week away, and nobody truly knows what the Milwaukee Bucks will do. They hold the 23rd and 33rd picks in the draft and could either draft some young players to add to their bench or trade the picks for some proven talent as they gear up for another run at a title.

If the Bucks decide to keep either of their picks, there will be a plethora of players at several different positions that they could select. However, one thing the Bucks have needed for a while is help on the wing, particularly defensively, so they may be targeting that position.

If the Bucks do indeed decide to select a wing, here are the top five prospects at that position for them in this class.

Keep in mind I am only including players who are realistic picks for the Bucks with their current picks (23rd and 33rd).

5. Ryan Dunn (Virginia)

Simply put, Ryan Dunn is probably the best defender in the 2024 NBA Draft. He has a ridiculous 7-foot-2 wingspan and a great combination of size, speed, and athleticism. Dunn is someone who will disrupt anything that the opponent tries to do. He can lock down the perimeter as a wing defender, defend the paint some as a roamer and secondary rim protector (2.3 blocks per game), or use his length to be a disruptor and generate deflections (1.3 steals per game). On top of all of this, he is also a very good rebounder.

Now, the reason Dunn only finds himself fifth on this list is his offense. He is a very limited offensive player who averaged just 8.1 points per game last year and shot just 11-for-49 (22.4 percent) on all jump shots, per Synergy Sports (Login required).

Dunn is not a ball handler, can't create his own shot, has no outside shooting ability and struggles mightily from the free throw line (52.5 percent in two seasons). The only areas he excels in offensively are as a cutter, finisher and in transition.

Despite his offensive limitations, Dunn's elite defense and exciting athleticism are two things the Bucks desperately need, so it would be difficult not to be excited if the Bucks ended up drafting him.
