Tier 2: I'm In

Jamal Shead (Guard - Houston)

Likely round: Second

Short point guard at just 6-foot-1, but he is an outstanding point-of-attack defender with toughness and intensity that the Milwaukee Bucks could really use. Offensively, he can run the show and be a playmaker while also scoring from the mid-range.

Jaylon Tyson (Wing - California)

Likely round: Late first/early second

Shot creating wing who can score at all three levels, pass, rebound, and is passable on defense. He's not super quick or athletic, but he could be a steal in the late first or early second round.

Ryan Dunn (Wing - Virginia)

Likely round: Late first/early second

The best defender in the class with his length, versatility, quickness, and athleticism. His offense is a huge question mark, but he checks the Milwaukee Bucks' two biggest boxes in a big way: defense and athleticism.

Kel'el Ware (Big - Indiana)

Likely round: First

Ultra-talented and athletic big man with a 7-foot-4 wingspan, good mobility and some potential as a shooter. He has some question marks about his effort and physicality, but he would be hard to pass up if he falls to pick 23.

Jalen Bridges (Wing - Baylor)

Likely round: First

Not a super exciting prospect, but he's one of the better 3-and-D prospects of this class whose skill set should make him a solid role player at the next level.

KJ Simpson (Guard - Colorado)

Likely round: Late first/early second

Shifty, electric guard who can score from anywhere, be a playmaker for others and is a good defender and rebounder despite being just 6-foot-2.

Tristan da Silva (Forward - Colorado)

Likely round: First

There's nothing very flashy or eye-popping about him, but his floor is as high as anyone in this class with great shooting ability, high IQ and solid defense.

Bub Carrington (Guard - Pittsburgh)

Likely round: First

Bucket-getting guard with a deep bag who can also pass, run an offense and play fairly tough on defense. Still has to polish some of his game, but the potential is really good.
