Milwaukee Bucks Trade Target – Collin Sexton
Collin Sexton is someone Bucks fans have wanted for a long time. Per Yahoo Sports’ Jake Fischer, the guard was made available for trade via the Utah Jazz earlier this off-season, which had fans once again clamoring for the Bucks to make an offer. Sexton would fix an obvious issue on this Milwaukee roster in their lack of complementary scoring.
Sexton checks off a lot of the same boxes as Powell in the sense that he can score the ball at will. For his career, he’s averaged 19 points while shooting 46.4 percent from the floor and 38 percent from 3-point land. The 24-year-old could act as Milwaukee’s sixth man and backup floor general, giving them a much-needed scoring punch off of the bench.
Adding a combo guard like Sexton could also be the key to getting the best out of Jrue Holiday for the playoffs. If the Bucks will continue to have Holiday guard the opposing best player, they need someone next to him to alleviate the scoring load. Sexton could do just that, sliding Holiday to the two-guard slot to allow him to focus more on his matchup while the former scores the ball.
Sexton is currently in the second year of a four-year deal and will make $17.3 million this season. That puts him right around the same range as these other targets, meaning he is attainable if the Bucks genuinely have an interest in him, which they absolutely should. Sexton could the exactly what the Milwaukee Bucks need right now.
