5. Acquired Samuel Dalembert, the 14th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft and a future second round pick from Houston in exchange for Jon Brockman, Jon Leuer, Shaun Livingston and the 12th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft

This trade might not have seemed so bad at the time, but in 2016 it’s not looking good. The Bucks sent two fairly productive players in Jon Leuer and Shaun Livingston for Samuel Dalembert, and also lost two draft spots in the process.

Why Milwaukee was willing to give up three players and two draft spots for a center who averaged 7.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game the season before, we may never know. But Dalembert spent one season in Milwaukee, played in 43 games, and left for Dallas.

He has not played in the NBA since 2015. Livingston is the backup point guard on the best team in basketball, and Leuer has been playing pretty good basketball for the Phoenix Suns.

At least the draft pick thing ended up working out for the Bucks. The two players picked at 12 and 13 overall were Jeremy Lamb and Kendall Marshall. Milwaukee ended up with John Henson, clearly the best of those three players right now.
