Naji Marshall

In addition to Kris Dunn, the Bucks were also reportedly looking into New Orleans Pelicans forward Naji Marshall around the trade deadline, per that same report from Fischer. Just like with Dunn, the interest was justifiable back then, and it will be justifiable again this off-season once the small forward enters the open market in free agency.

For many years, the Bucks have clearly needed bigger wings, as opposing bigger wings have taken advantage of Milwaukee's smaller ones. Bringing in Marshall, who stands at 6-foot-7, would be a nice change of pace, giving the Bucks a versatile small forward who can provide the height and length to combat what has been one of their biggest issues in recent memory.

Marshall is coming off a solid year with the New Orleans Pelicans, having averaged 7.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game while shooting a career-best 38.7 percent from long distance. Though he might not stuff the stat sheet nightly, he's capable of doing a bit of everything out there, which could make him a valuable piece to this second unit.

Unless someone else is blown away by what Marshall brings to the table, here's seemingly a good shot that the Bucks could get him on a minimum this off-season if the forward is bound to relocate from New Orleans.
