The biggest news of the offseason was the supermax extension Giannis Antetokounmpo signed to stay in Milwaukee long-term. This sent waves throughout the league, as teams had already begun to position potential cap space flexibility in the case that he would be come a free agent. With several new pieces on the roster, the Bucks will look to have the best regular season record in the NBA for the third straight season.
We broke down the Bucks’ depth chart for the 2020-21 season below. We’ve also previously published a summary of the Bucks’ offseason.
- Will the Bucks get over the hump in the playoffs? Having the best regular season record is great, but it means nothing if you can’t get it done in the postseason and win a title. With the addition of Jrue Holiday, Milwaukee is in a great position going forward.
- Can the bench score the ball at a high level? In the modern NBA, bench scoring is becoming extremely important. The Bucks have a solid starting lineup, but will need their bench to show up if they’re going to have success.
