I think I’ve made it pretty clear how I feel about this trade. The Bucks just aren’t going to do this, and I think every fan would be heavily against it even being suggested.

Schröder is someone who can be of use to any championship-chasing team, as he is effective from the bench, but in terms of what the Bucks give up, this is a bad trade. Contract-wise, it is not too bad but would mean giving up someone like Connaughton or Grayson Allen to match the salaries. If a second round pick could be added in order to pry him away, then it may be considered.

For the Raptors, they would add to their young core, but again it also would just create a hole at the guard position and leave them with a plethora of young wings that all need game time in order to progress as players. On the face of it, they would probably accept this trade, but I just cannot see the Bucks even considering moving Beauchamp unless there was a big name, and I mean All-Star level, and use the young wing as a way to convince a team to make a move.

Overall there isn’t too much to say here, but this is a bad trade. Should the Bucks keep tabs on Schröder this season and maybe get him for cheaper? Sure. But this package is not one that should even be considered.
