12. Milwaukee Bucks
The Milwaukee Bucks are coming off of a very disappointing 2015-16 season. Milwaukee signed Greg Monroe with hopes of elevating their status into the upper echelon of the conference. However, Milwaukee won just 33 games last season.
Will Milwaukee be better this season? With the pieces they have, they shouldn’t be worse. But can Jason Kidd and company put it all together? The Bucks will have to stay healthy and get production from their key pieces, such as Jabari Parker, Giannis Antetokounmpo and others.
With the talent that Milwaukee has, they could easily prove this ranking wrong if everything goes as planned for them. Still, though, it seems the Bucks must set out to prove the 2015-16 season was an anomaly.
The Bucks added a player who just played on a championship team, in Matthew Dellavedova, and perhaps Delly can share some of what he learned from LeBron James with the young Bucks.
The Bucks were a tough team to rank. Players such as Parker, Antetokounmpo and others give the roster hope to the point where a playoff berth wouldn’t be totally shocking. Nevertheless, Milwaukee will have to prove it on the floor once the season tips off.
