The Milwaukee Bucks should target Jeff Green this offseason

Jeff Green has played for 11 teams throughout his lengthy NBA career, and the Milwaukee Bucks could look to make it 12 this offseason.

Though Green is nearing 36-years-old, the veteran could still be a serviceable piece for the Bucks due to the versatility he would provide. The 6-foot-8 Georgetown product has played a handful of positions throughout his career, including small forward, power forward, and even center, which is why he would be perfect in Milwaukee. Head coach Mike Budenholzer could create no shortage of lineup combinations with a player such as Green, and the small ball lineups would be formidable. Not only is the veteran a quality defender, but he is also a decent scorer and passable shooter, two attributes that would make his potential fit in Milwaukee even more desirable.

It seems like the front office understood how well Green would fit in with the team as the forward was linked to Milwaukee last offseason. As the Bucks were uncertain what Bobby Portis would do with his player option, Green was pegged as a potential replacement target if the center left, but nothing ever came of it as Portis stayed in town. Well, Portis is set to ponder a player option once again this offseason, and if he leaves, Green is someone worth keeping an eye on. Green will also have a decision to make this offseason as he has a player option with the Denver Nuggets that he may or may not accept, but if he tests the free agent waters, Milwaukee should pounce on him as the veteran would likely not cost the team a significant amount while filling a prominent hole.
