It’s rare when the Milwaukee Bucks make a trade in the offseason. The last time the team did this was in 2021, when they acquired Grayson Allen from the Memphis Grizzlies. Since that offseason trade, General Manager Jon Horst has been content by building through the draft and free agency.
But could the Bucks swing a trade for talented Magic guard Jalen Suggs? Milwaukee could use another ballhandler on the roster and an heir apparent to Jrue Holiday once he decides to hang it up in the next couple of years. This trade proposal could net them a young player like Suggs from the Orlando Magic.
The trade between the Milwaukee Bucks and Orlando Magic
This trade was proposed by Tyler Watts in his latest article for Behind the Buck Pass.
This trade proposal has the Bucks acquiring Suggs for Pat Connaughton, a 2028 1st Round pick swap, and two second-round picks.
It wouldn’t be the worst trade. Suggs (22) is a promising young player that isn’t in the best situation in Orlando. It’s rare when a top-five draft pick gets traded so soon, but a player like Suggs hasn’t lived up to the billing of being a top-five draft pick that could all change with a trade to a contending team.
Let us break down the trade and give it a grade.
