2016-17 Projected Depth Chart:

PF: Jabari Parker/John Henson/Johnny O'Bryant

SF: Giannis Antetokounmpo/Damien Inglis

SG: Khris Middleton/Rashad Vaughn

PG: Michael Carter-Williams/Tyler Ennis







NBA Free Agents:

SG-O.J. Mayo (UFA)

PG-Greivis Vasquez (UFA)

SF-Steve Novak (UFA)

C-Miles Plumlee (RFA)




2016-17 Team Salary: Approximately $64.7 million





NBA Offseason Team Needs:


1. Three-point Threat: Finishing in the bottom third in the league in three-point shooting, the Bucks need to add a long-distance threat who can come off the bench and provide some punch, especially since Kris Middleton is the only returning player to shoot higher than 33 percent from distance this past season. It is unlikely Milwaukee can address this need with the 10th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, so free agency or via trade is the route the club should go to find a shooter.

2. Point Guard: Milwaukee's point guard situation was a bit of a mess last season, to the point that the Bucks began using Giannis Antetokounmpo as their primary ball-handler. There has been talk of The Greek Freak running the point more often next season, but Milwaukee would still be wise to find another point guard besides Michael Carter-Williams and Tyler Ennis especially since Jerryd Bayless and Greivis Vasquez are both free agents.

3. Stretch Four: With Greg Monroe and John Henson, the Bucks have a skilled big man and rim protector inside, but they could use an offensive-minded big who is capable of stretching defenses with his outside shooting. Jabari Parker is playing an undersized power forward, and while a capable three-point threat, he struggled from distance this past season.
