Though the Milwaukee Bucks currently own the best record in the league at 35-6, they make look to bolster their roster by using the Indiana Pacers’ first-round draft pick in a trade.
Although they currently own the best record in the Association, it would be smart for the Milwaukee Bucks to consider their options before the February 6 trade deadline.
The Bucks’ well-rounded roster has been a considerable part of the team’s success, but there is always room for improvement.
When it comes to assets, the Bucks are far from the NBA’s richest team in that department, but Milwaukee still has a variety of young players and draft picks they could be willing to move.
With cap space being an issue for this team, the Bucks would not be able to acquire any top tier stars without a real shakeup, which could damage chemistry significantly, and would seem unwise given the team’s dominance to date anyway.
There are rumors that management may be willing to go into the luxury tax to bolster this team, however. If that is indeed the case, the Bucks have a plethora of exciting role players from around the league that they could look into acquiring for the right price.
Whether the Bucks actually make a move, or will have sufficient assets to acquire the caliber of players worth targeting remains to be seen. Much of that will depend on how the market develops as the deadline approaches, but in the meantime the Bucks should at least do their due diligence on potential deals for these five players.
