NBA Offseason Team Needs:

1. Wing Depth: With Jabari Parker suffering another season-ending torn ACL and a timetable on his return to the court uncertain, the Bucks should look to add options. Tony Snell is also a restricted free agent, and Milwaukee because has limited cap space available, the team may not be willing to match a big-time offer should Snell receive one.

2. Point Guard: Milwaukee used the Antetokounmpo/Dellavedova/Brogdon trio at point guard for the majority of the season, and while it was fairly effective, the team still lacks a true distributor.

3. Stable Leadership: General Manager John Hammond left to take the same gig in Orlando, so Milwaukee will have a new man calling the shots. Hammond quietly did a really nice job building the Bucks’ roster, and new management faces the same challenge for a “small market” franchise.
