2. Jamal Crawford, Guard
Jamal Crawford is a player who could theoretically help the Bucks’ bench scoring problem. Even at 38-years-young and limited playing time last season, he still averaged 10.3 points per game with the Minnesota Timberwolves. This number is likely to come up a bit next year even though he’s one year older.
Crawford could give the Bucks a nice shot-creator off the bench and someone who will get hot 10-15 times a year. Unfortunately, he prefers to go one-on-one in isolation and the pick-and-roll and would cut out the other players on the roster. He might be better than anything Milwaukee currently has, but he’d certainly stunt the growth of the other players on the team.
Crawford also plays zero defense. That could become a big issue given Milwaukee already has a couple of guys on their team who fill that role. It’s okay to get by with one or two of those types of players, but the more you collect, the harder it is to have success.
