Shooting Guard - Andrew Wiggins

A few weeks ago, this would have seemed off the table. However, a recent rumor from The Athletic's Tim Kawakami (Subscription required) says that it's not off the table that the Golden State Warriors could test Andrew Wiggins trade market despite him signing a new deal recently. Pair that with the forward's struggles this season, and it seems somewhat likely that perhaps they could trade him.

Despite the slump he's been in this season, Wiggins would fit nicely in Milwaukee's backcourt, giving them a wing who can take on the toughest assignments nightly. Acquiring him would not be cheap for the Bucks, as he is on the books for $24 million this year. However, due to his defense and versatility, it could very well be worth it.

Small Forward - Khris Middleton

Back to normality. It was a tough start to the season for Khris Middleton, who was on a tight minutes restriction due to an off-season procedure. There was frustration from the fanbase, and many even wondered if it was time to try and move off of the three-time All-Star, as unlikely as it may have been. However, following his slow start, Middleton has really turned it on as of late.

Middleton has played over 32 minutes in each of his past five contests, and he's scored 20 or more points in four of the five. He's finally starting to look like himself as the clear-cut third option on this team, and if he can continue progressing, this team might have another gear. He's still not where he needs to be, but Middleton's recent uptick in minutes and production has been welcoming.
