This is a ranking of the Milwaukee Bucks players based on the current impact they have on the team.

Rank Player Height Weight Position Exp Age Trend
1 Andrew Bogut 7-1 260 Center 5 25
Back to the 2009-10 Bogut. He averages 14.1 points per game while getting career highs in rebounding and blocks (11.3, 2.8). Defensive POY is Dwight Howard’s to lose, but if he slips at all Bogut will be there for the taking.
2 Brandon Jennings 6-1 169 Point Guard 1 21
Jennings’ fall from the #2 spot will be due to his foot surgery. 4-6 weeks is plenty of time for Brandon to sit next to Coach Skiles each game and see what he is able to learn to advance his own game.
3 Ersan Ilyasova 6-9 235 Small/Power Forward 5 23
Ersan Ilyasova is a “do it all” player. His shooting has been reliable, but that isn’t what keeps him in the lineup. He starts because he does all the dirty work that Skiles asks of his players. He follows the game’s pace and does what is needed.
4 Chris Douglas-Roberts 6-7 210 Guard/Forward 2 23
The biggest climb on the charts, he went from recovering from surgery to filling in whenever possible, to starting games, attacking the basket, and showing off his athletic potential. GM John Hammond should be arrested for stealing him from the Nets.
5 Luc Mbah a Moute 6-8 230 Small/Power Forward 2 24
If you saw his defense against Kobe Bryant, you’ll know why Mbah a Moute plays a lot of minutes. His offense has picked up this year, but that’s not needed. He can play man-to-man against every position on the court, and frustrates most other teams’ stars.
6 Drew Gooden 6-10 250 Forward/Center 8 29
Gooden had been in a bit of an injury slump and missed some time. But when he’s healthy, he’s generally consistent. Needs to step up his rebounding a bit, but he can hit a solid percentage of shots from 10-17 feet out.
7 Keyon Dooling 6-3 195 Point Guard 10 30
It will be hard to keep him this low on the chart. He doesn’t take the shots like Jennings, and isn’t nearly as quick. But he’s a smart veteran, molded well in Skiles’ image. He’ll be challenged to push the tempo of a game.
8 John Salmons 6-6 207 Guard/Forward 8 30
9 Larry Sanders 6-11 235 Power Forward R 21
10 Earl Boykins 5-5 133 Point Guard 12 34
11 Jon Brockman 6-7 255 Forward/Center 1 23
12 Corey Maggette 6-6 225 Small Forward 11 30
13 Carlos Delfino 6-6 230 Guard/Forward 6 28
14 Brian Skinner 6-9 265 Forward/Center 12 34
15 Michael Redd 6-6 215 Guard/Forward 10 31
