1. Wendell Carter Jr.
Wendell Carter Jr. represents the sole player on this list who the Bucks would have to trade up for. He’s currently being projected to go as a fringe top-10 pick so Milwaukee would have to move up quite a bit.
However, if they did so, they’d be handsomely rewarded.
Carter Jr. could be the answer to all of the woes and center. At 6-foot-10 with a 7-foot-4 wingspan, he looks and plays the part. He’s also strong enough so he doesn’t get bullied around by other big men. In fact, he’s the one who usually does the bullying.
Carter can do a little bit of everything including shoot threes, rebound, pass and catch passes with his great hands. That versatility is critical in a big man and would be a welcomed addition to the Bucks’ lacking unit.
Although it’s unlikely, Carter Jr. would be a huge addition to this team and somebody the Bucks could use as an X-factor. He would swing the pendulum all the way in the Bucks favor and help push them into the second round of the playoffs and maybe further. That’s why he’s the biggest steal of this draft.
