First Donte DiVincenzo trade package for the Milwaukee Bucks
This deal was proposed in a piece published earlier this week regarding packages that could help the Bucks land Dennis Schröder from the Boston Celtics.
With George Hill struggling to get into a groove and the entire bench unit failing to produce most nights, the Bucks could look to make a significant splash by trading for an upgrade at the backup point guard position. Schröder has been solid for the Celtics this season by averaging 16.1 points and 4.5 assists per contest, both of which are areas where the Bucks need help. The second unit currently ranks 29th in both points and assists per game, numbers that have both caused ample amounts of concern throughout the season. Moving Hill to get an immediate upgrade would be a feasible move, especially with the Celtics potentially open to trade offers for Schröder.
If it also requires moving DiVincenzo, it could be worth it as not only would the Bucks land a former Sixth Man of the Year candidate, but they would also add more size off the bench with Juancho Hernangómez. Of course, the Bucks have had their issues down low this season with Brook Lopez missing all but one game due to back soreness. While DeMarcus Cousins initially seemed like he could be the piece to give the Bucks size off the bench behind Bobby Portis, his stint in Milwaukee abruptly ended earlier this month after he was waived. Hernangómez could give the Bucks a 6-foot-9 forward off the bench to help with these issues in Lopez’s absence.
Ultimately, this move would be about bolstering the bench with two players that could make an immediate difference if brought aboard.
