No. 1 - Acquiring Patrick Beverley at the NBA Trade Deadline

Many were expecting a big trade deadline move for the Bucks, but that never transpired. Instead, they acquired Patrick Beverley from the rivaling Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Cameron Payne and a second-round draft pick. Beverley hasn't stuffed the stat sheet nightly since coming aboard, but he's clearly made an impact.

Beverley has brought aboard his trademark intensity and defensive impact, two attributes this team had lacked prior to his arrival. Another player with experience alongside Rivers, Beverley has helped this team establish an identity since coming in. He's always one of the most vocal players on the floor while playing pesky defense against his opponents.

For what he's brought to the table thus far, many Bucks fans have compared the addition of Beverley to the 2021 addition of P.J. Tucker. Like Beverley, Tucker came in and became a key leader through his vocal presence and toughness. Everyone knows how that season ended for the Bucks, and they are hoping things conclude in a similar fashion this time around.

For now, Beverley will continue to be tasked with playing perimeter defense, providing leadership and giving this team a lift off the bench. In nine appearances, he's averaged 5.8 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists while shooting 37.5 percent from deep. He'll continue to play the largest role of these four players and will almost certainly make the biggest impact.
