No. 3 – The Milwaukee Bucks desperately need more juice on the offensive end
The Milwaukee Bucks have had their share of struggles on the offensive end in the last few years, especially in the NBA Playoffs. For whatever reason, their production on that side of things simply drops off a cliff when the postseason begins. This team needs a bonafide scorer to help alleviate some of the offensive pressure off of Milwaukee’s top guns, and Bradley Beal fits the mold.
The shooting guard would fit seamlessly alongside Antetokounmpo and whatever other pieces the team may hypothetically surround them with. He can score from anywhere on the floor and would provide excellent versatility next to Giannis. Over the last six seasons, Beal has averaged 26 points while shooting 47.2 percent from the floor and 35.2 percent from long distance. On top of all that, he’s not just a scorer, having averaged 5.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game in that same span.
Some have expressed concern regarding the potential drop-off in defense if the Bucks were to add Beal, as he’s never made waves on that end. However, after seeing the Bucks struggles to put the ball in the hoop for three straight postseasons, especially the last two, it’s clear that this team is in need of a boost on that side of things. Adding one of the best scorers in the game today could be a great solution to that problem.
