OKC Thunder - Gordon Hayward

With Aaron Wiggins, Isaiah Joe and Lindy Waters III all holding club options this off-season, none of them will likely be available to opposing teams in free agency. Outside of them, the Thunder have a handful of veterans set to explore free agency, which is no the most ideal. Yet, one who could make some level of sense for the Bucks is Gordon Hayward.

There's no mistake that Hayward had a horrible close to the season with the OKC Thunder after being shipped there at the trade deadline. It was an awkward fit that never panned out. However, in the prior 25 games with the Charlotte Hornets, he averaged 14.5 points, 4.6 assists and 1.1 steals per contest, showing that he still could produce at a high level.

Hayward could assist in giving the Bucks another versatile weapon off of the bench. He's a strong scorer, shooter and facilitator, all of which could beef up this Milwaukee second unit. As previously said, the Bucks could use another reserve sparkplug offensively, and Hayward could help while also providing decent size at 6-foot-7.

If the Milwaukee Bucks could nab Hayward on a minimum, which is a possibility after his brutal close to the season, this would be a low-risk, high-reward signing. He doesn't fill the voids of athletic wings or defensive-minded forwards, but his offensive arsenal is captivating, especially considering how devoid of offensive production Milwaukee's non-Portis reserves can be.
