Milwaukee Bucks 2-for-1 trade scenario two: Bucks condense depth for scoring

In this deal, the Milwaukee Bucks would trade their shooting guard depth in exchange for a scoring shooting guard who would fit flawlessly alongside the other starters in their lineup. The Bucks would bring Norman Powell full circle back to the team that drafted him to slot his scoring next to the Bucks’ Big 4.

During the 2022-23 season, Norman Powell averaged 17 points per game on 47.9 percent field goal shooting, 39.7 percent 3-point shooting, and 81.2 percent at the free throw line.

Norman Powell would be great playing off the ball alongside Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Last season on catch-and-shoot opportunities, Norman Powell shot 41.4 percent on field goals and a strong 42.6 percent on 3-point shots.

For the Clippers, this deal offers them the opportunity to add some shooters on their roster alongside Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook and a chance to build some wing depth and possibly make some other trades with players on expiring contracts for depth at other positions.

Grayson Allen shot 39.9 percent on 3-point attempts last year, and Pat Connaughton had a bit of a down year last year dealing with injury but is a career 35.9 percent 3-point shooter. Connaughton also has been a successful post-season player with the Milwaukee Bucks, something the Los Angeles Clippers have desperately looking for.
