3. Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks are coming off of another season where they could not make a run to the NBA Finals. In the bubble, they could not even get past the second round. Since the preliminary games of the restart, Milwaukee looked off and that continued in the postseason.

Giannis Antetokounmpo won his second straight MVP this season, but the team is underwhelming outside of him and Khris Middleton. The Bucks do not have a reliable option to handle the ball.

Other than Giannis, there is not a player who can break down a defense and finish at the rim. The Bucks need shooters. That is why DeMar DeRozan might not be their first choice, but he is still a pretty solid backup plan.

Middleton often struggles to create his own shot. That is something DeRozan does at will. Despite his lack of three-point prowess, he is an elite offensive player who can take over a game.

If the Bucks are looking to keep the Greek Freak happy, making a deal with the Spurs for DeRozan could make some sense.
