Ranking Milwaukee Bucks trade assets – #2: Jordan Nwora

There will be those who have Jordan Nwora behind the limited draft picks and hey, I can’t blame you! But if you’ve read my stuff at all, you’ll know that I’m still a believer in Nwora as a future rotation player so I have him as their second-best asset.

Maybe we’ll have to add my belief in Nwora to my list of wrong takes, but if I was an opposing GM of a bad team, I’d be very interested in taking a shot on Nwora as part of a trade package.

The second-year wing is averaging 8.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.0 assists in 41 games this season and 19.3 minutes per night.

At full strength, the Bucks have no need for Nwora in their rotation and he has struggled to find his role when he’s not being relied on to score at will like he does when the Bucks are missing bodies.

The hope, if you’re the Bucks, is that you find a GM who shares my sentiments about Nwora and his potential. You see the self-creation flashes, you see the shot-making ability, and you think that if you can help him refine his game in other areas (he’s only 23!) then you have a solid offense-first rotation piece that can get you points in bunches.

Is it likely that they’ll find that GM? I can’t say, but Nwora won’t get moved unless they do.
