With the NBA Trade Deadline creeping up, Milwaukee Bucks fans have been firing up ideas via the trade machine to try and improve the team.

Whether it's a big move or a smaller move, everyone has their own idea as to what the team should do before February's deadline. Yet, no matter the path, all of the roads come to the same conclusion: The Milwaukee Bucks need more players who can help them out on defense as they aim to reinforce their personnel on that side of the court.

With fans throwing out their own respective ideas, Behind the Bucks Pass' own Max Griffith recently took a stab at it and proposed an interesting idea involving Atlanta Hawks wing AJ Griffin, who is the son of current Bucks coach Adrian Griffin, of course.

It's no secret that the Bucks have not been afraid to have family connections in the organization. Not only does the team have three Antetokounmpo brothers, Giannis, Thanasis, and Alex (G-League), in the organization, but this season also marks the second time that the Lopez twins are both Bucks - they were also both in Milwaukee during the 2019-20 campaign.

Let's look at the mock trade.

Bucks/Hawks Trade

There are quite a few moving parts in this mock. While the Bucks add Griffin, they would be shipping out three assets in return, including Pat Connaughton and two of their finite second round selections.

There's a lot to say about this trade, so let us break it down by looking at each team's point of view before handing it a letter grade.
