1. Trade 2024 POR 2nd & 2028 Potential 1st Round Option To Swap(Top 2 Protected) To The San Antonio Spurs For 2022 BOS 1st(#25)
Why ?: To add another first round pick in the upcoming draft.
2. Send George Hill, Grayson Allen, Jordan Nwora, & 2024 2nd To The Indiana Pacers For Buddy Hield
Why ?: Hield would be such a tremendous & dangerous player on a Giannis led Milwaukee squad. He’s a deadly 3pt shooter that can score from anywhere & would fit perfectly as an off ball player.
3. Draft Walker Kessler(C, 7’1 245) With The #24 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft
Why ?: With Lopez being a year older now & on an expiring contract, it’s time for the Bucks to find his long term replacement. Kessler is a great rebounder, defender, rim protector, & shot blocker. He’s very strong & has stretch big potential due to his ability to knock down outside shots.
4. Draft Jaden Hardy(PG, 6’4 195) With The #25 Pick In The 2022 NBA Draft
Why ?: Hardy is an athletic & skilled combo guard that can create his own shots & score from anywhere. He’s a great 3pt shooter & can play off the ball nicely as well.
5. Resign Bobby Portis To A Four Year Contract Worth $44 Million
Why ?: Y’all already know, he’s the man in Milwaukee.
6. Sign Derrick Jones Jr Using The MLE To A Three Year Contract Worth $21 Million
Why ?: He’s a solid lengthy defender that can provide defense off the bench for Milwaukee. DJJ needs to improve his 3pt shot but that should come with open looks from Giannis attacking the rim.
7. Sign Ben McLemore To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum
Why ?: A nice veteran 3pt shooter to come off the bench & provide offense.
8. Sign Gorgui Dieng To A One Year Deal Worth The Minimum
Why ?: In order to add big man depth & someone who can space the floor for Giannis.
Bucks Ideal Starting Lineup:
Holiday, Hield, Middleton, Antetkounmpo, & Lopez
Hardy, Connaughton, Jones Jr, Portis, & Kessler
Rest Of Bench:
Vildoza, Tucker, McLemore, Antetkounmpo, & Dieng
Two Way Players/G-League:
Quenton Jackson & Kenneth Lofton Jr
Why San Antonio Does This?
They already have picks 9, 20, & 38 to work with. Flipping 25 for a future 2nd & a potentially valuable swap in 2028 would be a smart deal for the Spurs.
Why Indiana Does This?
Mostly to get off Hield’s contract while acquiring a young player in Nwora & future 2nd in the process. Allen can replace Hield’s minutes & keep them competitive.
