5. Jerryd Bayless (PG-MIL)
- 2015-16 Stats: 10.4 points, 3.1 assists, .423/.437/.778
The departure of Greivis Vasquez left a huge hole in the backcourt and put too much pressure on Michael Carter-Williams. With Carter-Williams falling short of expectations (to put it kindly) the Bucks needed another point guard to step up, and Bayless did.
Most people are pointing to Bayless’ incredible shooting percentage from downtown, but the variety of ways in which he he’s impacting the game on offense is more impressive.
Like Augustin, Bayless would only be a stop gap but he’d be an excellent one that Jerian Grant could learn a lot from. Bayless has been around the block and will have plenty of teams chasing after him this summer.
