Bucknor is trying to break into the top six or seven spots for the team but he appears destined to remain a solid role-player coming off the bench.
He can certainly provide adequate back up in the small forward spot and is a great option to give the higher performing wing players a break from the action.
He has been playing in the second tier of French basketball and has limited experience of playing against high calibre players.
This will be a tournament when he will play against the best players he has ever faced.
Bucknor rustle up some steals and is capable of getting a couple of buckets and boards in each game.
For Leo Rautins, this is absolutely fine - in fact, Bucknor should be aiming for another nice cameo contribution of this kind in Turkey.
Bucknor just needs to shoot the ball sparingly and look to focus on the hustle aspect of his game.
