The Milwaukee Bucks’ perspective on this trade with the Orlando Magic
Suggs would add another element to Milwaukee’s offense. He’s a guy who can be the sixth man off the bench and immediately be a scoring threat. Suggs, so far in his career, has averaged 10.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 101 NBA games. He’s also a career 38 percent shooter from the field and a 27 percent 3-point shooter. He would be brought in as a dynamic option off the bench for Head Coach Adrian Griffin.
The team should be high on adding guys who can come in off the bench and add instant offense. Fans have wanted the team to go after Utah’s Collin Sexton. However, if he’s too far out of their range, they could potentially pivot to a piece like Suggs.
Pat Connaughton struggled shooting last year as he only shot 33 percent from three and 39 percent from the field; that’s not the type of production Milwaukee should expect from its bench.
The draft picks could be an interesting idea because Milwaukee has been open to trading draft picks in recent years to help them acquire players who will help them win a championship.
It would be an ideal scenario for Milwaukee to give up draft picks to acquire Suggs because this is a veteran-led team and not in a position to get top-end talent through the draft.
