Reasons the Milwaukee Bucks roster is good as is: No. 1 – They’ve already shaken things up.

Sometimes you just don’t get what you want. The truth is there were 29 other teams who would have loved Collin Sexton or Damian Lillard on their rosters, too. And given the team’s asset situation, that probably means 29 other offers that would have been better than Milwaukee’s.

Regardless of how the remainder of this offseason turns out, moves have already been made, even if they weren’t necessarily the league-breaking superstar migrations that some were hoping for. The Bucks got a fresh new head coach in Adrian Griffin, and he can hopefully breathe some new life into a system that was largely exposed by a league that had been rapidly catching up to it for years now.

This writer has always been of the opinion that this team’s problems throughout the Mike Budenholzer era have been more indicative of systemic deficiencies than actual flaws in roster construction. With a former Nick Nurse assistant now at the helm, it’s all a matter of waiting to see how much this changes things.

They also went all-in on replenishing their once-dwindling youth movement, adding athletic and defensive-minded guys like Andre Jackson Jr. and Chris Livingston. The former could be a sneaky good playmaker who can put opposing scorers in jail, while the latter could end up being the steal of the second round.

In conclusion, this writer believes that the Bucks still have a good chance to contend for a championship this season. They have a solid roster, a proven culture, and a superstar in Giannis Antetokounmpo. They may not be the favorites, but they should not be counted out.

Admittedly, it’s hard to argue that this iteration of the Milwaukee Bucks is going to win the NBA championship this year. But that’s more a result of the league developing all around them than their own roster build. As currently constructed, these Bucks are, at the very least, going to contend. And at the end of the day, the Bucks’ offseason is not over yet. They could still make some moves before the season starts and again at the trade deadline later on in the regular season. If they do, they could become even more dangerous.
