The latest episode of our Win In 6 Podcast arrives as we provide immediate reaction to the news of Brook Lopez‘s signing with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The latest episode of our Win In 6 Podcast arrives as the Milwaukee Bucks are reported to have made their second signing of the summer.

At a position that has long been a source of inconsistency, need, and lack of production, the Bucks have opted to turn to former All-Star Brook Lopez as a potential solution to their long-running center problems.

Lopez has reportedly agreed to sign for the Bucks on a one-year deal at the bi-annual exception, creating real bargain potential at just $3.4 million. For all of the positives of Lopez’s addition, it certainly doesn’t do anything to resolve the plethora of questions and decisions still facing the Bucks, though.

Providing our immediate reaction to the deal, we weighed all of that up starting with how the offseason should be framed considering the potential value of Lopez’s deal.

From there, we considered his fit, how Coach Budenholzer may look to use him, and what it could mean for the futures of Jabari Parker and the Bucks’ other centers.

Lastly, we dipped into the mailbag to field listener’s questions on the Lopez acquisition and Milwaukee’s offseason to date.

Joining me for this episode, and preparing to map out the simple and common process involved in any Bucks acquisition, was Jordan Treske.
