Ranking the Roster 2016: The Final Six!

After making some minor adjustments after a preseason trade, Bucks Island is down to its final six inhabitants!

Six will enter! One will win! And the other five will be arranged in some order! It's the Final Six of the Brew Hoop Roster Ranking Extravaganza!

Now that we've confirmed that Tony Snell is just about as valuable as the departed MCW, it's time to take a brief look at who's back, and what they mean to the team going forward.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo. The assumed top dog, everything in Milwaukee starts with Giannis, and probably will for a long time.
  • Matthew Dellavedova. Scrappy. Gritty. Australian. Delly has been on Bucks Island only a few months, but has proven to be valuable on the floor.
  • Thon Maker. Mysterious. Athletic. Also Australian. Nobody knows quite what he will be, but as a 19 year old player with a 7'1" frame and the ability to move, shoot, and defend, he's a wild card.
  • Khris Middleton. Always underrated, a torn hamstring could be all that keeps Khash from earning runner-up status this season.
  • Greg Monroe. Old-school game, but sometimes you just need to get a bucket on the block, and Moose does just that. The chance that his contract is terminated this summer is another point to remember for Bucks fans.
  • Jabari Parker. The evolution of Jabari is a point of great interest for Milwaukee, particularly as he becomes more than "just" a scoring savant.

So, have at it! Who takes the sixth spot in our rankings?

(Reminder: we're counting down the most valuable players from a roster-building perspective, not just who is going to be the best player next year. So put on your NBA GM hat and consider all the key factors that go into a player's value: past productivity, future potential, contract, age, personality, etc. So to start, pick the player you think is least valuable -- in other words, if the NBA had an expansion draft, who would be the first Bucks player you'd leave unprotected?)
