MKE Bucks Thread | Offseason


Recommended Posts

Fix #1 - 3 Team Trade
Milwaukee receives - C Robin Lopez
Cleveland receives - PG Matthew Dellavedova
Chicago receives - SG Iman Shumpert, SG Rashad Vaughn

Fix #2 - Trade with NYK
Milwaukee receives - C Kyle O'Quinn
New York receives - 2019 2nd Round Pick (acquired using Roy Hibbert TPE)

Fix #3 - Trade with Brooklyn
Milwaukee receives - PF Trevor Booker
Brooklyn receives - C John Henson, 2 future 2nd round picks (2020 & 2022) (or a future 1st instead - just wasn't sure if we could do it with all the protections on the EB 1st)

Depth Chart
Eric Bledsoe | Malcolm Brogdon | Gary Payton II
Tony Snell | DeAndre Liggins | Jason Terry
Khris Middleton | Jabari Parker | Sterling Brown
Giannis Antetokounmpo | Trevor Booker | Mirza Teletovic | DJ Wilson
Robin Lopez | Kyle O'Quinn | Thon Maker | Joel Bolomboy

Solves the big man/rebounding issue resoundingly and the only asset it costs us is a future 1st to dump Henson. Also gives us the ability to send Thon to the G League. Only bad contract left on the books is Mirza's $10 Million but that comes off after 2018-2019 and we could use that money to re-sign Bledsoe should he become a fit. Booker's $9 Million comes off after this season (which could possibly open up enough money to re-sign Jabari to a deal in the $14-15 Million range), Lopez's $13 Million after next along with the aforementioned Mirza's $10 Million. Gives us some financial flexibility to re-up Malcolm, EB and possibly Middleton without coming up against the luxury tax. Of course, Jabari probably doesn't go for a deal in the $14 Million range so we'd have to go into said luxury tax to re-sign him if he's in our plans. Either way, as I see it, if we plan on keeping the core together, we're going to have to go into the luxury tax to do it.

I'm thinking about dealing for Boogie. Need another star player, aren't going to have any cap room at really any point in the future, and he'll be quite cheap to acquire.

I'd part with Thon, Parker, Vaughn and picks. That team might be the best in the East even with LeBron still playing at an MVP level.

I'm not sure how tight our cap space is. Is it really that bad ? 

Type in fmaddenNBA + cap on a Twitter search and go to photos for a nice visual breakdown. But basically we'll never be able to make max cap space.


In regards to Boogie, it's important to remember that he's a FA this summer and NO just isn't very good so it's unlikely they'll make the playoffs to try and get him to stay. Also, last year he was traded for a pretty mediocre package, so something like Thon + Jabari might get it done if Jabari comes back alright.


EDIT: In order to trade for Boogie, the Bucks would have to move one of Henson, Delly, or Teletovic to make the money work. So something like Thon+Jabari+Henson for Boogie is possible.
