5. Troy Brown Jr.
Troy Brown Jr’s stock has slid over the last month or so. He was originally projected to go in the 10-14 range, but has now fallen to the late teens. According to those mock drafts, he’ll almost certainly be available when the Bucks pick at 17.
That could leave him ripe for the picking if Milwaukee so chooses. Brown is a defensive-oriented wing which certainly wouldn’t hurt the Bucks. He could bring some more firepower to that end of the floor and help take some of the pressure and duties off Khris Middleton.
He’s also a good playmaker as well and could become a secondary option to initiate the offense. This would allow him to play alongside Malcolm Brogdon in the backcourt. A lineup of Brogdon, Brown, Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo alongside a center would create a huge length advantage against opposing teams.
If the Bucks feel they fit the new system Mike Budenholzer will be putting in place, they’ll have every opportunity to jump all over him at No. 17.
