This one is pretty simple. The Bucks lack shooting, and the Timberwolves have long been desperate to offload Kevin Martin. Of course, part of that is because Martin’s production doesn’t necessarily always match up to his salary, but possibly a greater priority for Minnesota is clearing some space for other young players.

This creates an easy way that the Bucks and T-Wolves could help each other out with this deal. The Bucks could send Greivis Vasquez to Minnesota, with the Timberwolves safe in the knowledge that his injury will likely mean he won’t end up taking much if any of their minutes this season, and his contract expiring in the summer.

The Bucks could take on Martin, a career 38.5 percent three-point shooter who has long been an able scorer, helping them to space out the floor for some of their more paint-congesting five man units.

Milwaukee won’t be keen to take on any sort of long-term salary, but Martin wouldn’t exactly force that either. Vasquez is being paid one way or another, so why not pay somebody who is going to be able to contribute on the court instead?

The Bucks would have Martin on the books for $7 million for next year too, but with a whole host of expirings currently on the radar, that wouldn’t be a major issue.

Vasquez and Martin are far from hot commodities, but where a deal for either man may not make a whole lot of sense for many teams around the NBA, this might just be a case where a deal would be mutually beneficial.
