2. Milwaukee Bucks

There's nothing the Bucks love more than chucking up threes, so McDermott would seemingly be an ideal fit in their offense.

Milwaukee finished fifth in three-point percentage last season, which isn't all that surprising given they had five players finish with a percentage north of 37%, including Jrue Holiday, Grayson Allen, Pat Connaughton, Bobby Portis and Khris Middleton.

The Bucks added former Jazz deadeye Joe Ingles in free agency, but he's approaching his age-35 season, is coming off a torn ACL and his three-point efficiency plummeted last year. For context, he shot 34.7% after boasting a 41.7% clip over the previous five seasons.

If Ingles is headed for regression, the Bucks' bench unit, especially in the frontcourt, suddenly looks a lot thinner. With clear championship aspirations, acquiring McDermott would go a long way towards fortifying Milwaukee's rotation for 2022-23.
