It's back! While Dan is going toe-to-toe on bird law (or whatever it is men of the law do), we're stepping in to bring back this year's edition of Ranking the Roster! We may be a little behind from when we started this last season, but there's no reason we can't catch up by the time the pre-season ends.

Remember, 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? I've left out the obviously unlikely choices for these first couple polls and for simplicity's sake, we're ignoring training camp players like Jabari Brown and Orlando Johnson, since they're all but assured to be gone by Halloween.

Without further ado, the least valuable player on the Milwaukee Bucks roster is...
