What Other Bucks Could Be On The Move
If you lived under a rock, Milwaukee Bucks sent Miles Plumlee to Charlotte Hornets for two big men. It’s amazing they got out of his contract. Reports came out after the Plumlee deal that Bucks weren’t going to be done with him and are actively trying to move other pieces of the team. This is a warning shot to Bucks players and almost an encouragement to play well if they’re unhappy with the situation currently. This begs the question, what Bucks player could be on the move?
John Henson and Greg Monroe – Both players were mentioned when it came to who could be on the move, and it makes sense. Henson is out of place with this Bucks team, and there are some who believe he needs the right system to flourish as a basketball player. Monroe is playing fantastic driving up his trade value and could really help a team who’s in need of big men down the stretch. Henson and Monroe both carry good contracts even though I could see Monroe’s player option scaring some teams off.
If the deal is right
Matthew Dellavedova – When Bucks signed Delly to a four-year deal worth 38 million dollars, they never expected Malcolm Brogdon to be this good. While The Prez isn’t ready to be a starter, it’s clear that he should have more minutes than Dellavedova. With how well he played with superstars in Cleveland, he might be an attractive piece to a team trying to make a run this year. Not to mention, let’s not forget the work he did on Steph Curry, and teams in the West could have interest.
Most likely not
Tony Snell, Khris Middelton – It would be really surprising if either player ended up traded. Snell is a restricted free agent next season so there’s some value to him, but Bucks like what he brings to the table and want to bring him back. Middleton could be a piece if a huge deal happens but not sure how many teams will take a risk on him without seeing him play.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker, Malcolm Brogdon – Some people might float Jabari’s name in trade rumors, but I can’t see it. Bucks have so much equity with him as a player, and whatever he’s going through right now, I don’t think it’s the biggest issue on the team. Now if it’s way worse than the media portrays it, they might need to look around for deals involving Parker.
