Pelle Larsson is another slept-on prospect in this draft class who checks almost every box an NBA role player could have. He can shoot (42.6 percent from three last season and 39.7 percent for his college career), defend, handle the ball some, facilitate an offense, finish at the rim, play in transition, and he has good size and athleticism.

On top of all of this, he plays extremely hard on both ends and makes a lot of winning hustle plays. His skill set is comparable to Donte DiVincenzo or Christian Braun, just with maybe a little bit less athleticism.

Larsson can be used in a lot of ways offensively. He mostly thrives as a spot-up shooter who can either shoot off the catch or attack closeouts, but he can also be a secondary ball handler who runs pick-and-roll and creates some offense. And when he isn't doing either of those things, he can cut to the rim and finish with his size and athleticism.

Overall, he has a great feel for the game and can be a Swiss army knife offensively. He also plays hard on the other end of the court and is a stout defender.

There's very little not to like about Pelle Larsson other than his lack of elite upside and limited isolation scoring ability. But for a contending team like the Milwaukee Bucks, he checks basically every box they could need in a player to put around their core.

Larsson is currently going in the mid-second round in a lot of mock drafts, so the Bucks should have a chance to select him. He would be a fantastic pickup who can be impactful from day one.
