Bucks Need a Guard

The Milwaukee Bucks entire backcourt (Jennings, Ellis, Redick) is set to hit free agency on July 1st, and none of them are expect to return next season. This leaves the Bucks with a major hole on their roster, and it is something they need to address in this year’s NBA Draft.

The Bucks currently hold the 15th overall pick, and if the draft plays out how I expect it to, the Bucks will be deciding between three players – Shane Larkin, Dennis Schroeder, and Glen Rice Jr. All three of these players have a good possibility of being selected by the Bucks, but Shane Larkin is the best option for them.
Shane Larkin is the best pick-and-roll point guard in the draft, and is one of the better athletes too. Even though he is the smallest guard in the draft at six feet tall, he is a pesky defender, who is an excellent ball handler and shooter.
Shane Larkin would be a great fit alongside Larry Sanders and John Henson, due to his athleticism, ability to handle the ball, and solid leadership skills. Shane Larkin is the best option for the Bucks now and in the future, and he is a player the Milwaukee Bucks cannot afford to pass on in the draft.
