The draft’s great X-factor, McGary is a 6-foot-10, 263-pounder who projects as a center at the NBA level.

He was limited by a back injury, averaging 9.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.9 steals and 1.5 assists in 24.6 minutes per game in the eight games he played before undergoing surgery last season.

McGary put himself on the radar with a big NCAA tournament as a freshman, as the Wolverines made it to the national championship game. But after testing positive for marijuana and facing a one-year suspension at Michigan, McGary opted to enter the draft.

He doesn’t possess a lot of length for a center with a wingspan around 7 feet, his quickness and agility will help him offensively and defensively. He can get up and down the floor in transition for easy points and he sets very solid picks.

He rolls to the rim very well off the pick and roll but does not have a particularly advanced post game.

But he could have a successful career as a role player, setting picks, rebounding and a high-motor player.

McGary may already be off the board by the time the Bucks make this pick, but if he’s there, they might take a flyer. He did work out for them last week.

Projected to come off the board: No. 26-36.
