Shooting Guard: Malcolm Brogdon
I’m a big believer in starting your five best players regardless of position and Brogdon is certainly one of the Bucks’ five best. He’s primarily a point guard, but will likely play mostly shooting guard considering the logjam at the 1.
That’s okay, however, as he’s effective enough off the ball to make it worthwhile. Even though he struggled with injuries last season, he took a small step forward in his game and proved Milwaukee has another player on its roster. He averaged 13 points per game while shooting 48.5 percent from the field.
The biggest asset he brings is his ability to shoot from the three-point line. He knocked down 38.5 percent from downtown last season. Even though that was a small step back from his rookie campaign, it came with an increase in attempts which is nice to see.
Tony Snell is another option to start here, allowing Brogdon to be a creator of the second unit. However, Snell was too inconsistent last year and struggled with his confidence so much so that having Brogdon on the court to start games will be best for the team.
