79. . Round 1. Pick 6 (1998). Robert Traylor. 15. player

Tractor Traylor was originally drafted by the Dallas Mavericks but was part of a draft day trade that sent him to Milwaukee in exchange for Dirk Nowitzki and Pat Garrity. With all due respect to Traylor, the Bucks might want a redo on that one.

Traylor’s career averages of 4.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 0.7 blocks per game don’t light up a box score, but he managed to be a rather efficient player while never playing heavy minutes in a career that spanned 438 games.

Traylor’s career was cut short due to heart problems and it was an apparent heart attack that prematurely ended his life in 2011.
