Following some horrific execution on the final play of Game 5 against the Heat, the Bucks may simply be done with Grayson Allen entering this offseason. While he is quite a solid role player, his occasional dirty play, alongside the way he blew a potential game-tying shot in overtime, may overrule that.

Replacing Allen may not be the easiest thing, but considering the Bucks’ current cap situation, it may be the best move to make financially. Re-signing Allen wouldn’t break the bank by any means, but it certainly wouldn’t help.

In 72 games played this season, Allen averaged 10.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game while shooting 44.0 percent from the field and 39.9 percent from three on 5.1 attempts. These are very fine numbers for a role player. Again, replacing these numbers won’t be easy, but it is possible.

Allen was having himself a very good playoff series against the Heat as well until his massive mistake on the final play of overtime in Game 5 where he, for some reason, decided to start driving to the basket with less than a second left on the clock, losing the game and series for Milwaukee.

There are simply too many factors going against Allen this offseason for us to justify wanting to have him back. Hopefully, the Bucks can figure out how to replace his output, though.
