The Milwaukee Bucks have been rumored to be shopping point guard Brandon Jennings, but a new Buck has been rumored to be traded.
Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1150: “Multiple sources say the Wolves and Bucks have talked about a trade, with the main pieces being No. 2 for No. 10 and center Andrew Bogut. It's believed Milwaukee initiated those talks, probably because there is some uncertainty about Bogut's long-term health."
So the Bucks would trade the 10th pick and Bogut for the second pick, which would likely be Derrick Williams. But would it?
The Bucks don’t necessarily need either player. So, is this a good deal for Milwaukee?
Williams or Irving could obviously both help the Bucks.
The Bucks’ don’t need a young player like Irving looking for a lot of minutes that aren’t available. Williams could improve the Bucks, but he couldn’t fill Bogut’s void.
It just doesn’t make a lot of sense to trade up this year. I think the Bucks should stay where they are in the draft and choose Alec Burks or Klay Thompson. If the team fails to make the playoffs again next season, trading up in the already fantastic 2012 NBA Draft would be a grand idea.
The Bucks/Wolves trade is unlikely to happen. But if it does, it would definitely be interesting to see what Milwaukee would do with the second overall pick.
