Troy Brown Jr. – Milwaukee Bucks

Brown’s role with the Lakers was hot and cold throughout the season, but he still managed to put together one of his most productive years to date. After not playing much in the playoffs, Brown is not likely set to be a priority for the Lakers in free agency. If he departs, one team who could very well have an eye on utilizing his services is the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bucks’ interest in Brown could stem from their need for more wing depth and youth on their roster. This offseason, Jae Crowder, Joe Ingles, and Wesley Matthews will all hit NBA free agency, so the team will likely need to find some replacements.

After having the oldest roster in the NBA this past season, they would be wise to target some young wings to knock out two birds with a single stone. Brown, who’s still just 23 years old, checks off both boxes.

Brown would fit in well with the Bucks. At 6-foot-6, he’s a versatile wing who can guard a slew of different positions at a high level. Offensively, he’s a strong perimeter shooter, and the Bucks will always look to put plenty of those around Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The cash-strapped Bucks may also not have to break the bank to sign Brown, as he could likely be had on a team-friendly deal. In short, it would be a low-risk, high-reward move for the Milwaukee Bucks.
