Breaking News: Milwaukee Bucks Reveal Late Selection for 33rd Pick in 2024 NBA Draft…

Milwaukee Bucks: Draft Tyler Smith with 33rd Pick in 2024 NBA Draft

The Milwaukee Bucks selected forward Tyler Smith from the G-League Ignite with the 33rd overall pick in the 2024 NBA Draft. At just 19 years old, Smith averaged 13.9 points, 1.6 offensive rebounds, 3.5 defensive rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game last season. Standing at 6’11” and weighing 224 lbs, it will be interesting to see his role in the Bucks’ rotation if he makes the team out of training camp. General Manager Jon Horst’s decision to draft Smith in the second round is seen as a smarter choice compared to selecting A.J. Johnson with the 23rd pick.

Some fans believe the Bucks should have used their first-round pick on Smith instead of Johnson. The team conducted extensive research on Smith, and this selection has garnered a different reaction compared to the previous day’s pick, though some still question the overall draft choices.

Fan Reactions to Tyler Smith’s Selection

When the Utah Jazz selected center Kyle Filipowski 32nd overall, the Bucks had several options, including the potential to draft Bronny James, which they ultimately did not. The fanbase has mixed feelings about the 2024 NBA Draft, uncertain if Tyler Smith can immediately contribute to the team. Yahoo Sports’ Krysten Peek commented on Twitter that Smith will add size and floor spacing as a 3-point threat to an already established Bucks team. She noted that the Bucks are focused on injecting youth and potential into the roster with their picks.


Future Moves for the Bucks

Before the 2024-2025 season begins, General Manager Jon Horst will need to make additional roster moves, either through free agency or trades, to enhance the team’s youth and overall performance.
