As expected, the Milwaukee Bucks have not made any seismic moves this offseason, as their primary focus was retaining their own in-house free agents while making some other tweaks.

At this point, it remains to be seen whether or not the Bucks are ready to ride into the season with their roster as currently constructed or if they will make another move. If it is the latter, they could contact the Utah Jazz, who are seemingly ready to tear down their roster and start from scratch as they have made deals for Royce O’Neale, Rudy Gobert, and Patrick Beverley while they remain in talks to trade All-Star Donovan Mitchell.

Utah has several intriguing trade candidates for the Bucks, one of which is Jordan Clarkson, who many fans have clamored for the front office to pursue. If Clarkson is not among the trade targets Milwaukee is interested in, Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley recently proposed a trade that would see them acquire a different member of the Jazz in Bojan Bogdanovic. With that said, let us look at the hypothetical trade between the Bucks and Jazz.

Bleacher Report’s proposed Bojan Bogdanovic trade for Milwaukee Bucks

In Bleacher Report’s proposed trade, the Bucks would acquire sharpshooter Bojan Bogdanovic and his $19.3 million for next season, which will be expiring. To match his salary, Buckley suggests that Milwaukee sends back Brook Lopez, who will make $13.9 million, George Hill, who is on the books for $4 million, and a top-three protected first round pick down the line in 2029. There are plenty of moving parts in this proposed deal, so let us break it down.
