NBA Trades: Seth Curry could be a target for the Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks are always on the hunt for more perimeter shooters to add to their roster. After knocking down just 32.7 percent of their threes in the 2022 postseason, they added one of the best long distance marksmen in the business by signing Joe Ingles, a player they hope can be of assistance next season. If Milwaukee’s front office wants to take it a step further and improve their 3-point shooting efforts even further, they should go after Brooklyn Nets guard Seth Curry.

Curry has cemented his status as one of the best long range shooters to ever lace them up, having sunk 43.9 percent of his career 3-pointers. According to Basketball Reference, Curry currently has the third-most efficient 3-point percentage of all time, trailing only Steve Kerr and Hubert Davis. A player with numbers like that would certainly fit in well with the Bucks, giving them a piece that would be a seamless fit in their system offensively. The guard would thrive off the sheer number of looks that he would hypothetically receive playing alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo, as other 3-point shooters consistently have over the past several years.

Right now, it is unclear what the Nets would potentially want for Curry in a trade. It was reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that Brooklyn’s entire roster is available for trade after the recent developments surrounding Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Although the Bucks do not have the ammunition to land either of those stars, they should look to get in on the action by making a run at Curry. His $8.5 million salary for next season is incredibly affordable for the Bucks, and given what he brings to the table, it could potentially even be a bargain.
