2018 NBA Draft - Donte DiVincenzo Draft Grades

How did the experts think Milwaukee’s selection stacked up With Milwaukee’s 2018 NBA Draft officially in the books, we’re now staring into a future filled with way too many Ragu references after the selection of Donte DiVincenzo. We’ve already dove deep on whether it was a good, bad or ugly choice as well as some of his strengths/weaknesses, but you shouldn’t just take our word for it. We rounded up a number of the hot takes from the draftniks across the internet to see what they thought of Milwaukee’s selection. Sporting News: C+ Shooting guard in Milwaukee has proven to be...

Breaking Down Donte DiVincenzo - A Sixth Man Through and Through

Breaking Down Donte DiVincenzo - A Sixth Man Through and Through

What exactly did the Bucks get with their latest draft pick? There was a moment, right before Milwaukee’s selection, when I was dumbfounded that at least one of Lonnie Walker or Zhaire Smith were going to be available to the Bucks. I know it’s shortsighted to zero in on guys when we’re all basically fumbling around in the dark on draft picks, but I was elated thinking Milwaukee could land one of these electric athletes. Sure, there are questions about their shooting ability, but I thought that could get ironed out with Bud’s help and they had the type of upside to grow comfortably...

Point/Counterpoint: Was Drafting Donte DiVincenzo Smart or Dumb?

Point/Counterpoint: Was Drafting Donte DiVincenzo Smart or Dumb?

Do you love the pick? Do you like it? Or do you hate it and wish for something else? Adam and Mitchell cover the bases. Mitchell: OK, Adam, let me hear it: what are the big problems with the Milwaukee Bucks picking Donte DiVincenzo at 17 in last night’s NBA Draft? Adam: *inhales deeply* For me, it’s more contextual than anything else. I was enamored with Lonnie Walker IV or Zhaire Smith, at least one of which was going to be on the board for Milwaukee. The fact the Spurs selected Walker after the Bucks only made me more sick that Milwaukee passed on him. DiVincenzo the theoretical...

2018 NBA Draft: Bucks Select Donte DiVincenzo (Villanova) With No. 17 pick

2018 NBA Draft: Bucks Select Donte DiVincenzo (Villanova) With No. 17 pick

The gritty guard becomes the newest member of the Milwaukee Bucks With the No. 17 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, the Milwaukee Bucks select Donte DiVincenzo out of Villanova. The one thing that stands out the most about DiVincenzo might be his confidence. If you’ve watched college basketball the last two years, this is no surprise. When Wisconsin knocked off the overall No. 1 seed Villanova two years ago, DiVincenzo provided an electric spark off the bench and terrorized the Badgers. He also torched Michigan in last year’s National Championship game, scoring 31 points and helped lead the...

2018 NBA Draft Night Open Thread

2018 NBA Draft Night Open Thread

Come chat about the reaches, the steals and if Milwaukee will draft a competent player at 17! It’s finally that time. Fasten your butts on those couches, open whatever your preferred livestream program is to replace ESPN’s audio and let’s talk some 2018 NBA Draft. There’s plenty of intrigue still to unfold at the top, with Sacramento’s incompetency shrouding the second pick in a bit of mystery (it’ll probably be Bagley), but there’s no telling what Vlade may do. From there, question marks abound as to the fate of Luke Doncic, Mo Bamba, how far might Trae Young slide and most...

2018 NBA Draft - Brew Hoop Staff Predictions

2018 NBA Draft - Brew Hoop Staff Predictions

We take a stab at who we all want the Bucks to select in this year’s draft Welcome back to the Brew Hoop Round Table, where we ask that everybody use coasters and please don’t feed the pugs from the table, thanks. Today, we ask a simple question: Who do you want Milwaukee to snag at their 17th selection? It’s Draft Day folks! Who do you want to see in a Bucks uniform next year? Kyle: I really want someone that can come in and be able to get solid minutes. I know we want to get shooters for Giannis, but unless Trae Young is free falling in the draft, the combination of Middleton,...

2018 NBA Draft - Potential Milwaukee Bucks Prospects: Jalen Brunson

2018 NBA Draft - Potential Milwaukee Bucks Prospects: Jalen Brunson

Would the two time champion make a good floor general for Milwaukee? The Milwaukee Bucks have not had the greatest stretch of point guards in recent history. Brandon Knight was solid but too ball dominant on a team with Khris Middleton, a growing Giannis Antetokounmpo and rookie Jabari Parker. Michael Carter-Williams was brought in and all Bucks fans know how that ended up. Matthew Dellavedova is a limited player. Malcolm Brogdon has been good but PG might not be his best long-term role, while Eric Bledsoe remains a divisive player in the Bucks universe. All of these guards, with the...

Report: Sean Sweeney Leaving Milwaukee Bucks for Detroit Pistons

And with that, all traces of the Jason Kidd era are whisked away We interrupt the bevy of draft coverage for this important assistant coaching announcement, Sean Sweeney is apparently heading to join Dwane Casey in Detroit! This is according to a story from EuroHoops. Sean Sweeney is leaving the Bucks for Detroit | Eurohoops https://t.co/z0DaicD78m— Eurohoops.net (@Eurohoopsnet) June 21, 2018 The retention of Sweeney, Kidd’s defensive architect and oft-maligned assistant by Bucks fans, seemed a bit puzzling at the time it was announced. Mike Budenholzer presumably had his own...

2018 NBA Draft - What to Expect From a 17th Overall Draft Pick

2018 NBA Draft - What to Expect From a 17th Overall Draft Pick

Looking at the history of the mid-round selection to predict a realistic future. It is fitting the cover photo for this article features last year’s number 17 pick merely posing, given how little game action he saw last year. The 17th pick is a mixed bag, just far enough from the lottery that any players dropping might already be snatched, but just early enough to think you could find a solid contributor at the spot. Milwaukee is no stranger to this selection; this year marks their third time in this slot over the past four years. Milwaukee is also no stranger to the tribulations of the...

2018 NBA Draft - Brew Hoop Community Draft Board: Versatile Troy Brown Takes 17

The Oregon forward/guard snags our final spot After a lengthy, several weeks-long procedure we’ve finally reached the thrilling conclusion of the Brew Hoop Community Draft Board and it’s Troy Brown that lands at the Bucks’ selection at 17. Whether that necessarily reflects who Bucks fandom wants the team to draft is a question worth examining in the comments, but for now let’s dive into the pros and cons of Brown. Brown remains one of the youngest prospects in this draft, meaning plenty of teams are likely eyeing him as an upside pick given the flashes he showed in college. His...

2018 NBA Draft: Elie Okobo Picked in Boston Globe Annual Blogger Mock Draft

2018 NBA Draft: Elie Okobo Picked in Boston Globe Annual Blogger Mock Draft

The 20-year old from France becomes the Bucks’ third selection at #17 overall in the last four years. The 2018 NBA Draft is only days away! The Boston Globe held their fourth annual NBA Beat Writers Mock Draft today, and Brew Hoop was lucky enough to be invited back to once again represent your Milwaukee Bucks. Just like last year, the Bucks hold the 17th overall selection. This time, instead of taking a huge swing (and taking a chance on Harry Giles), we followed our own advice; we grabbed (did not reach!) Elie Okobo of Pau-Lacq-Orthez (France). My blurb: The Bucks have a task that is...
