#18 - Milwaukee Bucks

2011/12 Record: 23-43, no playoffs

2012/13 Projected Record: 39-43, possible playoffs  



Key Additions:

Jarrett Jack - Point Guard
Harrison Barnes - Small Forward
Carl Landry - Power Forward

Key Departures:

Dorell Wright - Shooting Guard/Small Forward
Nate Robinson - Point Guard
Dominic McGuire - Small Forward


Depth Chart:

Point Guard: Stephen Curry, Jarrett Jack
Shooting Guard: Klay Thompson, Brandon Rush
Small Forward: Harrison Barnes, Richard Jefferson
Power Forward: David Lee, Carl Landry
Center: Andrew Bogut, Andris Biedrins


The X Factor:

Andrew Bogut

If the big Aussie can stay healthy, he gives the Warriors an elite big man, capable of being an impact player at both ends of the floor.  But that's a big "if" - Bogut has missed 130 out of a possible 300 games (43%) over the past four years.  And he's already started off on the wrong foot (pun intended) this season by sitting out with his injured ankle.


Summary:  

The Warriors are a young, dangerous team, with impact players in both the backcourt and frontcourt.  If Bogut and Stephen Curry can catch some luck and stay on the court this season, Mark Jackson's crew could challenge for a playoff spot in the tough Western Conference.
