Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Melvin Frazier might be the likeliest picks for the Bucks at this point heading into the draft and are pretty similar players. The former was ranked 14th last time around and the latter was unranked.
Gilgeous-Alexander played one season at Kentucky and proved himself to be a defensive stopper who can guard multiple positions at 6-foot-6 with a 6-foot-11.5-inch wingspan. That defensive versatility might be attractive to the Bucks as they look to ramp up their defense a little bit.
Defense isn’t all he can do, however, as he’s also adequate on offense. He’s a slippery ball-handler who can play some in the pick-and-roll. But in order for him to take the next step, he needs a lot of work on his jumper.
Frazier, on the other hand, displayed an improved jump shot in his last season at Tulane, especially in spot-up situations. Even though he also has a ways to go, he certainly has a higher upside than Gilgeous-Alexander.
Defensively, he’s similar to Gilgeous-Alexander, as he plays hard on every possession. He’s very active and does a great job getting his hands on passes and taking the ball away from ball-handlers. Again, he would bring a valuable defensive attribute to the Bucks.
