The Milwaukee Bucks stood on the sidelines this trade season, marking the latest sign that prioritizing chemistry and cohesion is paramount for the league’s best team.

This year’s NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and the Milwaukee Bucks steered clear of the madness.

Thursday’s activity consumed all NBA fans as a strange and unusual deadline, marked by deals for All-Star big man Andre Drummond and the Andrew Wiggins and D’Angelo Russell swap, unfolded.

Of course, other teams across both conferences such as the Houston Rockets, L.A. Clippers and the Miami Heat, that are looking to take down the Bucks, made headline moves in hopes of vaulting their championship ambitions over the top following the deadline.

But at 44-7 following their win over the slumping Philadelphia 76ers, the Bucks decided their best course of action was doing nothing at all, in fear of disrupting  a team that is on track to have one of the best seasons in league history.

That, in and of itself, is a decision, even taking into account the limited draft assets and disparity in salaries that potentially hindered their ability to go after a player available on the market.

So without further ado, let’s move over to what the Bucks’ lack of activity at the trade deadline means for them moving forward as they continue their hunt to win it all this season.
