Ojeleye just completed his fourth season with Boston after being a second-round pick in 2017 out of SMU. The 26-year-old started 15 games for the Celtics this past year, averaging 4.6 points and 2.6 rebounds while shooting 36.7% from beyond the arc.
But Milwaukee didn’t get Ojeleye for his offense. It’s his defense that intrigued the Bucks. The 6-foot-6, 240-pound Ojeleye has the ability to guard multiple positions and routinely was given the assignment of dealing with Giannis Antetokounmpo when they faced Milwaukee.
