Brandon Marcus joins Dan Besbris to try to predict where the big names will end up. Plus, the Bucks had six players in the top-70 - who will be back, and will there be any draft day values?

The Bucks will start Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Brook Lopez and Robin Lopez on Wednesday.
Giannis, Bledsoe and Middleton all sat out of Monday's preseason opener but that was just a case of rest. If you're looking to see how the Bucks' rotation could shake out, tonight could be the game to watch.

Giannis Antetokounmpo won't face the Bulls on Monday.
Eric Bledsoe, Khris Middleton, and Ersan Ilyasova will also miss Monday's matchup. None of this is a major surprise so early in preseason. Antetokounmpo should be drafted within the top few picks this season.

Eric Bledsoe scored an inefficient eight points (3-for-9 FGs, 1-for-3 3-pointers, 1-for-2 FTs) in Saturday's loss while adding five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two turnovers.
Bledsoe seemed to ebb and flow all series and just could not find the consistency that the Bucks needed during the Eastern Conference Finals. He has always been able to produce outside of scoring but his team really needed him to put the ball in the hoop this game.

Eric Bledsoe showed signs of life on Thursday night, scoring 20 points, but it wasn't enough for the Bucks to overcome the Raptors in Game 5 at home.
Bledsoe was worlds better than he was on Tuesday, but the Bucks didn't have an answer to Kawhi Leonard and lost hold of the game late in the fourth quarter. A dialed in Bledsoe would really help the cause in Game 6.

Eric Bledsoe was nearly invisible in Tuesday's Game 4, going for just five points (2-of-7 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), three rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes.
Bledsoe has been pretty abysmal in this series and it seems to be getting worse. George Hill and Malcolm Brogdon played more than him in this game (27 and 28 minutes, respectively) and there's a good chance that could continue with Bledsoe not being much of a threat on offense lately. Though, Hill and Brogdon did combine for just nine points in this game too.

Eric Bledsoe played well in Wednesday's 116-91 Game 5 win, finishing with 18 points (7-of-14 shooting), six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.
Bledsoe had a relevantly quiet series after a rock-solid first round. His offense will very much be needed for the Bucks to make it out of the East and reach the Finals for the first time since 1974.

Eric Bledsoe had 13 points on 6-of-12 field goals to go with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and two block in 28 minutes in the Bucks' Game 4 road win over the Celtics on Monday.
It's been a bit of a mixed bag for Bledsoe in this series offensively. However, he's been relatively effective against Kyrie Irving on the other side of the ball. Brook Lopez (seven points and eight rebounds) and Nikola Mirotic (nine points and six rebounds) were relatively pedestrian on the offensive side in tonight's win as well.

Eric Bledsoe bounced back in Tuesday's Game 2 with 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting while adding three rebounds, five assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers.
Bledsoe was much more aggressive tonight and it helped that he hit 3-for-5 from beyond the arc. He did all of his damage in only 26 minutes of action because whenever he was on the floor he was looking for a bucket.

Eric Bledsoe couldn't get anything going on Sunday, finishing with six points (1-for-5 shooting), four assists and two steals in 25 minutes of action.
Not good enough. Bledsoe should be fired up to make up for last year's postseason performance against the Celtics but it was more of the same today as Boston was able to shut down Milwaukee without too much effort. George Hill scored nine points in 24 minutes off the bench, and we may see more of him going forward with how the Bucks struggled to get anything going on offense and how easily the Celtics were able to score themselves. A two-PG lineup with Sterling Brown heading to the bench might not be out of the question.

Eric Bledsoe had a well-rounded line with 16 points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and one three in 28 minutes in Monday's Game 4 win over the Pistons.
Bledsoe shot 7-of-12 in this closeout game while providing a steady veteran presence. For the series, he averaged over 19 points, four rebounds, five assists and exactly two steals. Bledsoe's defense will be tested in Round 2 against Kyrie Irving and the Celtics.

Eric Bledsoe didn't shoot the ball well in Saturday's win over the Pistons, finishing with 19 points (8-of-19 from the field), five assists, six rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes.
Bledsoe was able to help out in other categories today despite the rough shooting night against the Pistons. The Bucks can afford him having these kinds of nights against Detroit since they have so much firepower to throw at their opponent. Although, as their opponents get tougher in later rounds, the margin of error becomes smaller for Bledsoe as he needs to be more consistent against top-tier competition.

Eric Bledsoe shot the ball well in Wednesday’s 121-99 win over the Pistons, finishing with 27 points (11-of-19 from the field), six assists, four rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
After a relatively quiet Game 1, Bledsoe helped carry the offensive load in Wednesday’s blowout. The Bucks are going to hope there are more games like this in-store for Bledsoe moving forward, as his offensive production will be critical to how the Bucks will fare against stronger opponents in the later rounds.

Eric Bledsoe contributed accross the board, scoring 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting with five assists, three rebounds two treys and a steal on Sunday night.
Bledsoe played like his typical self against the Pistons backcourt tonight, as he has been a fantasticmid-round option all season for the Bucks. Bledsoe has always been a handful, and his decision making and on-the-ball defending was a big reason why the Bucks were able to neutralize the Pistons' point guards tonight.
The Bucks turned in a great season but have tons of questions moving forward
