The Milwaukee Bucks must explore adding more bench scoring in free agency or via trade this offseason

One of the Milwaukee Bucks’ biggest flaws during the regular season was their lack of second unit scoring, and it ultimately came back to bite them in the postseason.

This offseason, the Bucks must find a way to add more scorers that complement the Big 3 and can shoulder some of that responsibility offensively. Though the team is largely set to be strapped for cash and will not have too much to spend, there will be some feasible options out there. As stated previously, someone like Dennis Schroder, a former runner-up for Sixth Man of the Year, could be the perfect backup point guard for this team due to his scoring ability. Malik Monk, who just had the best year of his career with the Los Angeles Lakers, could also help improve this bench brigade due to the lethal scoring he brings to the table. Whoever they target, the Bucks need to add some scoring this offseason in free agency.

If the Bucks are unable to do so in free agency, there could also be some interesting targets worth calling about on the trade market. Players like Justin Holiday or Kelly Oubre Jr. could help improve Milwaukee’s lackluster second unit scoring numbers while also filling the team’s holes at the wing position. As for assets, the Bucks have a surplus of second round picks at their disposal from prior trades, but they will also have a rare first round pick in the upcoming 2022 NBA Draft. Many have argued that the Milwaukee Bucks should keep that pick, and understandably so, but it will be an option if they are looking to make a splash on the trade market.

Milwaukee’s front office does not have the most assets and flexibility at its disposal, but Horst has made some miracles before, and he needs to be aggressive this offseason.
