TIER 4: Put your house on the market that these Milwaukee Bucks will be traded
Sorry, Grayson. Although being the starting shooting guard two years in a row, with his poor defense, shooting slumps at times, and in the last year of his contract (making a tad under $9 million this year), he is the perfect trade piece to a team for a new player to suit up for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Now, in theory, with the signing of Malik Beasley and a hopeful second-year jump from MarJon Beauchamp, Allen will have a slightly diminished role and/or minutes. He is still a quality role player that can provide 3-point shooting, but asking him to play too many minutes can be detrimental due to opponents targeting him on defense.
It doesn’t seem he is GONE gone, but every trade you see on any platform involving Milwaukee includes Allen. And not for the wrong reason. Especially when he is on an expiring contract. It makes it easier for teams to be willing to take him since they would only have to pay him for one year of service. So it may be time to move away from Allen if possible, wish him well on his new team, and thank him for his service.
In the same way, it cost Bledsoe to get the first ring, it may cost Grayson to get the second ring.
Stay tuned for more.
