    JON HORST... The good the bad and the ugly of his decisions.

    The good:1. He signed coach Budenholzer,
    2. He signed Tony Snell to a multiyear contract.
    3. He picked D.J. Wilson
    4. He signed Christian Wood.
    5. He signed Pat Connaughton
    6. He signed Brook Lopez to a fair deal.

    The bad: 1. He didn't replace Telletovic before the playoffs last season, lost Bellinelli and Ilyasova to the 76ers for the playoffs.
    2. He signed useless for the playoffs, Shabazz Muhammond & Brandon Jennings
    3. He lost another pick on the Zeller deal and then waived Zeller.

    The ugly: 1. He thinned the team in Center position last season and lost 2 picks in the deal...
    2. He fired Kidd, but didn't replace him as to have the team coached properly for the playoffs.
    3. He blew the deal with the Hawks as to trade the 17th pick for the 19th and the 30th one at the 2018 draft night, which would have led to the Bucks picking both Divicenzo (with the 30th) and the 19th pick on top, by letting leak that the Bucks were going to pick Divicenzo (who nobody else wanted in the first round)!!!

    EDIT: As it turns, D.J Wilson proves to be a great pick (amazing defender and very good shooter) and both Delly and Henson have been moved... I therefore edited the post...

    Let's hope he will trade Henson now that he is injured, with a season ending injury... Even if Henson is back for the playoffs, there is extremely little chance he will be able to contribute...

    Can the Bucks please just play Christian Wood over Thon Maker. Thon sucks.

    Wood isn't "NBA ready" yet... Maker is much better defender than Lopez, depending on Wood's progress, it may well be Wood starting and Thon backing him up primarily for the playoffs.

    I agree with the GOOD other then the Snell contract. We signed him first minute of free agency that summer. Besides Snell was RFA. Should of let the market set his price instead of out bidding our selves out of the gates. Beside give him a player option instead of team option.

    Snell's contract may look as being expensive at first sight, but given the salaries that wings achieve at the moment and his exceptional effectiveness, he will prove to be very cheap for the couple of seasons that follow...
    Besides, it is clear now that Snell was under coached last season... Both coaches used him at SG for shooting only, while Snell can attack the rim and is better played at 3 at both offense and defense, because he has the wingspan, the length and the legs as to defend even big PFs effectively... Attacking the rim (like he was back with the Bulls), comes back to him now, more and more, game by game...

    Still his contract off the bench is pricey in my eyes. Heck we got Pat and Lopez for way less. They move the needle way more. Yeah Snell played a little bit better this year. But that price tag he's not scoring a 20 point game here or there. He can be invisible and lay eggs in that stat lines boxscores nightly basis. Snell,Henson,Delly contracts is the problem were having which most likely if not moved for expiring we will lose some key starters to free agency next summer. Be hard to stock the cupboards with a late draft pick and barely any cap. Heck Brown can replace Snell easily.

    I bet you anything that in a couple of months, Snell will be able to replace Middleton in the roster and not lose a bit in team's effectiveness. you underestimate him...

    No he can't.... Brown would be more effective at SG and soon (no matter how much this may surprise you) at... PG(!!!)... Snell is best played as a forward...

    By the way, I forgot to mention before, that Snell's player option is because he will leave only if Giannis will leave... Snell, Brogdon and Thon (and now Wood added) are Giannis' best buddies in the team...

    Buckalis you are clueless. Sterling Brown isn't playing PG. Nowhere near the handles or decision making skills in transition.

    No way Snell replaces Middleton and Bucks don't miss a thing. Middleton is underrated by everyone. He scores 20, plays good team defense, elite shooter and good passer. Snell can shoot but nowhere near the iso-player or close to the passer that Middleton is.

    It's rather you that are totally clueless... Coach Angelou was hired by the Bucks during the summer after Giannis suggestion as to coach the summer league, because Angelou has unique scouting abilities other than being an excellent coach...

    The requirements that were set to him, were to explore the possibilities so that the Bucks will be able to find a "big" and a PG that could both have fast development as to become valuable pieces in the Bucks roster, because the Bucks are "thin" on future picks...

    Coach Angelou (who was among the ones responsible for scouting Giannis for the Bucks back in 2013) came up with suggesting Brown for PG as the best solution he could find out of playing several different line ups and giving extensive minutes to Sterling as being the PG on the floor out of the players he had available and was the one that insisted for Wood to be signed by the Bucks and to be trained with Giannis mentoring him...

    If one that is not clueless about basketball like you are and bothers to review the videos of this season Brown playing and compares them with last season, the difference on Brown's ballhandling, dribling and footwork are more than obvious... Brown will soon start to be tested by the Bucks on playing PG at garbage time this season and then gradually be promoted to a combo guard buck up to starters roll for next season...

    EDIT: Because I'm a good guy and would like to teach you some about basketball, watch this video carefully after 0:40... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-3ADQ0P_JY

    So you think Bucks starting lineup next year will be Sterling Brown-?-Snell-Giannis-Wood from your statements? Seriously?

    It really gets annoying when one can't read and decides to twist what has been already replied to him...

    "...Brown will soon start to be tested by the Bucks on playing PG at garbage time this season and then gradually be promoted to a combo guard buck up to starters roll for next season..." was the exact statement I replied...

    and Yes... The plan is for Wood to start next to Giannis for next season... this is the plan... It's all up to Wood if he can be "NBA ready" thereafter...

    You think Sterling Brown will be promoted to combo guard over DD? I disagree whole-heartedly. That is the plan for who? I don't think it's the Bucks.

    I would rather play Wood now. Thon is 3 years in and doesn't seem "NBA ready" most nights. It's really odd too. Right when he puts together a couple good games, Thon comes out and looks horrible like his first time out on the floor.

    Brown is wing SG/SF and small ball PF. He would be slow like Brogdon at PG. Also like gopackgo said his passing would be lousy for a PG.

    As for the BAD. Horst kept Wilson and waived Frazier.
