Brew Hoop Community Editorial Board – #21, Dalen Terry


As we approach the final scoreboard selection, this big picture is emerging with quite a few favorites among the Milwaukee Bucks fan community. Dalen Terry is the last to be given the green light, landing at 21.

He’s a truly intriguing player, listed at 6’7″ with a 7’1″ wingspan, but he also ostensibly played point guard for the Arizona Wildcats. He was apparently also a big winner in the NBA Draft, with his interviews taking the cake among league executives. His raw numbers aren’t mind blowing, in his second campaign he averaged eight points, 3.9 assists and 4.8 rebounds. He rarely reached the line and his 36% of his 77 3-point attempts and 73% of his 53 free throw attempts.

He’s a big stat-sheet stuffer, filling in the gaps around other players as he started every game for Arizona last year. He seems to have every projectable skill that we think would fit in with other Bucks players. The real question is if he can shoot the ball of course, which is why he lasts until this point in the draft. Interestingly, The Ringer (26) and ESPN (27) didn’t make it until the end of the first round, so while we seem high on him as a Bucks collective, it’s possible he lasts until later.

He skips the passing lanes and hopefully a little more strength on his body would help him switch positions as well. Bonus points for the tongue image we have on the thumbnail above. I would love it if Terry lasted until 24.

Here is Mike Schmitz’s summary after the combine:

Although not drafted as a go-to scorer, Terry’s combination of physical tools at 6-7, 195 pounds with 7-1 wingspan, defensive versatility, passing ability and an overall willingness to do the little things that impact winning could make him look as high as the lottery, sharing some similarities with a smaller Scottie Barnes in terms of overall impact and approach to the game.

Here is our list so far:

  1. Chet Holmgren
  2. Jabari Smith
  3. Paolo Banchero
  4. Jaden Ivey
  5. Keegan Murray
  6. Dyson Daniels
  7. Shaedon Sharpe
  8. Benoit Mathurin
  9. AJ Griffin
  10. Jalen Duren
  11. Johnny Davis
  12. Jeremy Sochan
  13. Ousmane Dieng
  14. Ochai Agbaji
  15. Mark Williams
  16. EJ Liddell
  17. Ty Ty Washington Jr.
  18. Jalen Williams
  19. Malaki Branham
  20. Tari Reason
  21. Dalen Terry
