Although he doesn't have a big salary like Portis or Connaughton that could be valuable in any trade, second-year wing MarJon Beauchamp is among Milwaukee's best assets. Without any first-rounders to offer, the Bucks could dangle Beauchamp, a first rounder from over a year ago, in discussions to try and captivate opposing teams.
Beauchamp has value, but his role with the Bucks has shrunk as the season has gone on to the point where he currently isn't in the rotation. Though it would be nice to keep him around and develop him and unearth that potential he possesses, if the team has to trade him to land a win-now piece, they shouldn't shy away from it.
Financially, he's on his rookie deal, so that wouldn't be a problem for a team looking to absorb his deal. This season, he's on the books for $2.6 million. Adding him would be a low-risk, high-upside move for a team willing to take a chance on the former first-round pick in place or in addition to draft capital, which would be Milwaukee's two remaining second-rounders.
It'll be interesting to see what happens with Beauchamp leading up to the 2024 NBA Trade Deadline. They could very well hang onto him, but if the right deal presents itself, it would not be surprising to see them move on from the second-year wing to capitalize on their title window.
