3. Lonnie Walker IV
Lonnie Walker is another guard who’d fit in nicely with the Bucks, but for completely different reasons than the guy previously on this list.
Khris Middleton is obviously locked into a star role in the backcourt, but there are question marks behind him. Tony Snell had a very up and down season and we don’t yet know what type of player Sterling Brown will be. Walker could replace Parker’s loss of scoring in the second unit and give the Bucks some much-needed depth at shooting guard.
He’s one of the few players who might be available around 17 that can create their own shot. This is a valuable skill in the NBA especially considering the lack of players who fit the bill. Walker has great footwork and fundamentals that allow him to perform his developing repertoire of scoring moves at a high level. As he gains more experience, his moves are only going to become more polished.
His shot selection leaves a lot to be desired and he had surgery on his knee last summer so he doesn’t come without some red flags. However, those might be just enough concerns to allow him to slip to the Bucks.
