There is no shortage of basketball personnel in Brew City, for the Milwaukee Bucks are maxed out at 15 players heading into training camp.
There are a lot of new athletes in this bunch; of the 15 players under contract, 8 played with different NBA teams last season, two played in Europe and one was an NCAA Summit League standout.
This bevy of talent leaves a lot to be desired for team chemistry and identity.
The core of returning players average three seasons of experience with the five years being the most played among them.
Still, there have been some notable additions like O.J. Mayo and Wisconsin native son Caron Butler.
On paper, the Bucks lack bona fide star power but they make up for that with quite a few guys who can get the job done at their respective positions.
A quick jelling of trust and synergy is going to be vital if this team wants to have back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time in 10 years.
With so many fresh faces it’s hard to gauge what the exact expectations are going to be.
Roster novelty aside, here’s a ranking of the Bucks' most important players heading into training camp.
