The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as Thon Maker‘s wait for playing time continues as trade talks continue.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we hear about the impact Thon Maker’s trade request may have had on his playing time, get the details of the Bucks’ Saturday night win in Washington D.C., and much more.

Maker was the only healthy, active player who failed to see the court as the Bucks cruised to victory over the Wizards, meaning that in the short term at least, Maker’s very public desire for more minutes has backfired. Of course, with reports suggesting trade talks are still ongoing, it may just suggest a deal is close.
