Milwaukee Bucks’ Targets: Seth Curry
This would be the ultimate switch for the Milwaukee Bucks to get Seth Curry and lose Grayson Allen. Although Curry and Allen are fairly comparable in defensive skills, Curry’s offensive ceiling is much higher than Allen’s.
Being able to add a player like Curry, who has shot above 40 percent from three for his career, would be a ginormous addition to the Milwaukee Bucks’ roster. With Curry’s 3-point percentage at 43.5 percent for his career, it’s considerably higher than Allen’s at 39.5 percent. Curry has also played with elite players like Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard and James Harden, so his understanding of being the backseat passenger on a team that features Giannis and Khris Middleton, he’d be able to adjust nicely into the rotation.
Curry also brings plenty of playoff experience to the table as well. He hasn’t made it to the Finals, but he’s been a regular in the postseason over the past handful of seasons. With his involvement in the playoffs, he’s an intriguing option for a team like the Milwaukee Bucks who would want a consistent shooter to play off of Giannis. In the past, the Milwaukee Bucks have emphasized the importance of having a knockdown 3-point shooter to spot up when other players drive. Curry is already accustomed to having that role on the previous teams he’s played on, so it wouldn’t be a major transition for him to get used to with the Bucks.
Curry is capable of being a 13 to 15-points-per-game player for the Milwaukee Bucks and could even be utilized in a reserve role as a weapon off the bench. With the Milwaukee Bucks wanting to make another run at the finals, they might have to start thinking of ways to remove Allen from the roster and try to insert players like Curry who can add an even higher value offensively for the Milwaukee Bucks.
