5. Elie Okobo
Okobo came out of nowhere in recent weeks and has dramatically climbed draft boards. In fact, he’s crept all the way into the teens for some of the major media outlets. This is dangerously close to where the Bucks are picking so they must be extremely careful not to buy into the hype.
Okobo is a point guard by height, but might be closer to Monta Ellis than anyone would like. At 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, he values scoring, putting the ball in the hoop and shooting contested step-backs. That’s not a good recipe for a team who already has enough players who can score the ball.
Another red flag for Okobo is his lack of ball-handling abilities. For someone who will presumably play point guard at the next level, he lacks the necessary handles and often becomes too careless with the ball. This could become a huge issue for the Bucks who often struggled with turnovers once the pressure was turned up in the playoffs.
Overall, Okobo would just clutter an already cluttered backcourt and add another shot-happy guy to the mix. He has bust written all over him.
