If one of these guys falls to the Bucks at No. 17 it would be a best-case scenario, as they each provide some unique skills and talents.
Kevin Knox is a raw 18-year-old who has tremendous scoring upside if he can put it all together. He’s another plausible and cheaper replacement for Parker.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was a fellow freshman with Knox at Kentucky, although he’s a whole year older. Gilgeous-Alexander is an active and interested defender who plays hard all the time. He has some work to do with his jumper, but has all the tools to make life difficult for opposing offenses.
Troy Brown Jr. is another player who has the potential to become a good defender. What moves him ahead of Gilgeous-Alexander, however, is his shot creation ability as well. Where Gilgeous-Alexander relies on others, Brown Jr. has the ability to get his own buckets.
Collin Sexton is a straight baller and somebody who would bring instant swag to the Bucks. It might be a bit counter-intuitive for Milwaukee to draft a point guard with Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon and Matthew Dellavedova already on the roster. However, Bledsoe has one year left and Brogdon is versatile enough to play the 2.
Robert Williams may not be the most talented player on this page, but he jumps to the top due to the Bucks’ positional need. Williams can turn into a DeAndre Jordan pick-and-roll demon who dunks everything in sight.
