Trade No. 2 to help the Milwaukee Bucks acquire Dennis Schröder
While the Celtics could entertain the thought of adding Nwora in a package for Schröder, no one could blame them for potentially not wanting Hill. If that happens to be the case and the Bucks are deadset on acquiring the guard, perhaps they would be willing to include Donte DiVincenzo. A deal including both Nwora and DiVincenzo would see the Bucks trade away their top two trade assets, but it could be worth it for Schröder.
The writing has been on the wall for over a year now that the Bucks are willing to trade DiVincenzo if the opportunity presents itself. They initially dealt him in a sign-and-trade for the sharpshooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic during the 2020 offseason before the deal collapsed. DiVincenzo’s time with the team came into question once more after they traded for another guard in Grayson Allen last offseason and then immediately handed him a contract extension. It would not be surprising if the Bucks were looking to move him again before the deadline, and though he has struggled this season coming off his ankle injury, the potential is there for him to be a solid player in this league.
When healthy, DiVincenzo is a strong defender that showed last year that he could be a starter on a contending team. His offense still needs polishing, but at 24-years-old, the guard still has plenty of room to grow. Heading to restricted free agency after the season, Boston could swing a trade to acquire DiVincenzo and keep him around for the long haul. Along with Nwora, the Celtics would be getting two young assets that could be great pieces for a player they are unsure they can keep after this season.
For the Bucks, it seems unlikely that they will pay DiVincenzo after the season, and with Nwora’s future uncertain, they may be more willing to move the pair before the trade deadline.
