2. Milwaukee Bucks
The Bucks have the mercurial Giannis Antetokounmpo to make up for some of the more noteworthy flaws on the roster. His talent was one of the main reasons the Bucks were as competitive as they were despite a severe lack of depth in the frontcourt this season.
Bobby Portis could be a free agent if he does not pick up his player option, and Brook Lopez has been exceedingly unreliable as his age has increased. Milwaukee has leaned on their bench to help separate from the rest of the East’s contenders, and Boucher could keep that unit firing.
Toronto Raptors: Chris Boucher will be a nice seventh man for the Bucks.
Considering how Milwaukee has become a semi-haven for ring-chasers looking to ride the coattails of Giannis, Thad Young could end up with the Bucks. If Milwaukee opts for a slightly younger option who could be a more effective perimeter option, Boucher could be on his way down.
The Bucks have been a reasonably solid organization from top to bottom, even if you exclude the last few years of Giannis. Boucher was wildly inconsistent last year, but he might be able to get back on the right track with Milwaukee’s parade of scorers around him.
