Shake Milton, Detroit Pistons

After being dealt from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Detroit Pistons at the NBA Trade Deadline, Shake Milton is an interesting name to monitor. Although the guard is coming off a poor stint with the Timberwolves, his role was minimal there, and he definitely needed a change of scenery. Perhaps he could find his footing on a contender like the Bucks.

If Milton were to be bought out, one factor that could help lure him to Milwaukee may be his familiarity with Doc Rivers, who coached him in Philadelphia. Milton played the best basketball of his career with Rivers at the helm, and perhaps the thought of joining him in Milwaukee could be enticing if he enters the buyout sweepstakes.

Milton wouldn't be a defensive ace for the Bucks, but he has proven to be a pest on that side of things throughout his career. Where he could really help the Bucks would be on offense, where he could be a sparkplug for this second unit. There have been no shortage of games this season where the lack of production from Milwaukee's bench has led to losses, and a scorer like Milton may be able to help.

At just 27-years-old, Milton still has plenty left in the tank and could be a nice piece on a contending team's bench if he were to be bought out.
