Pro: Paul would bring some much-needed offensive versatility to Milwaukee
Don’t get us wrong, the Bucks are going to be a good offensive team with or without Paul based on the Big 3 they have between Middleton, Holiday, and Antetokounmpo. However, adding Paul into the mix would bring some great shot-creating that the team could really use.
He isn’t the 19-plus point-per-game scorer he once was, but Paul can still give any opposing team buckets with his killer mid-range shot and playmaking. Aside from Middleton and, at times, Holiday, the Bucks don’t have a true shot-creator. Paul would instantly change this while also opening the floor up a ton with his ability to pass the rock.
Paul has consistently been an elite mid-range shooter who can also kill teams from beyond the arc at times. Really, Paul has been an average or better 3-point shooter in almost every season of his career. The Bucks can never have too much of that. They need this sort of offense on their team. They may be a statistically great offensive team, but adding an extra shot-creator wouldn’t hurt at all. Let alone a shot-creator who is also one of the best playmakers in the NBA.
