In an off-season that saw a slew of player movement, the Milwaukee Bucks were able to heighten their collection of quality reinforcements. With a coveted NBA championship in the balance, we turn our attention to the mass influx of newcomers.

Thanasis Antetokounmpo:

In a display of allegiance to the “Greek Freak,” the Milwaukee Bucks have secured the services of older brother Thanasis Antetokounmpo. Looking ahead to the 2019-2020 NBA season, Thanasis is equipped for a limited role.

Dragan Bender:

In a bid to spruce up their young core, the Milwaukee Bucks have added 21-year-old forward Dragan Bender to their well-balanced roster. At risk of fizzling out of the league, Bender has has had difficulties acclimating to the NBA. Thought to be a good shooter, Bender has thus far failed to demonstrate this skill in the NBA.

Kyle Korver:

Eager to reunite with esteemed Head Coach Mike Budenholzer, Kyle Korver has elected to sign with the competitive Milwaukee Bucks. Undaunted by his aging body, Korver continues to wow fans with his polished shot, much in alignment with the Bucks play style.

Robin Lopez:

In its pursuit of a quality backup center, the Milwaukee Bucks have instinctively reunified siblings Brook and Robin Lopez. Provided Robin plays a position of great importance, he will be expected to head the bench unit.

Wesley Matthews:

Needing to supplement the production of the fleeting Malcolm Brogdon, the Bucks will depend heavily upon Wesley Matthews to bridge the divide. Profiled as a sharpshooter, Matthews is a well-suited replacement for Brogdon.  As an anticipated member of the Bucks’ starting five, Matthews has inherited a role of great importance.

Frank Mason:

Dampening his hopes of building a sustained NBA career, Frank Mason would be prematurely waived by the Sacramento Kings. In ownership of a two-way contract, Mason will serve as the Wisconsin Herd’s foundational piece.
