The Milwaukee Bucks are getting closer and closer to the 2018 NBA Draft. Here are the top 20 players in descending order on their Big Board.
The Milwaukee Bucks have a couple of options with their 17th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. Their primary option is to keep it and select a player with the hopes of grabbing a contributor on a cheap four-year rookie contract. This would be ideal considering the salary cap wall they are about to come up against. Of course, it’s always a possibility they could miss on their first-round pick like they have the past couple of seasons.
The other option is to trade the pick. They could either trade it for an established veteran contributor and someone who is less of a risk. Or, they could package it with one of the bad contracts like John Henson or Matthew Dellavedova and try to shed some salary.
They are all viable options for general manager Jon Horst and some of it might be dictated from the owners depending on how much money they want to spend. But considering they just signed a new $200 million deal with Fox Sports, money might not be as much of a factor.
Regardless, if they decide to keep the pick, here’s a look at what their Big Board might look like heading into the June 21 draft.
