The Milwaukee Bucks have been one of the best teams in the league for the past two years. Despite their regular season success, they have been unable to advance in the playoffs and made some moves in the offseason in hopes of taking the next step. They could continue to be aggressive at the NBA trade deadline in hopes of securing a championship.
Milwaukee has had the best record in the league over the last two years. This is because Giannis Antetokounmpo has turned into one of the best players in the league and has one back-to-back MVP awards. Milwaukee acquired Jrue Holiday in the offseason in hopes of improving the point guard position.
So far, the acquisition has paid off. The Bucks are once again one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference and will be fighting for a spot in the NBA Finals.
A team that will not have a chance in the postseason is the Oklahoma City Thunder. Sam Presti has built up draft capital that has pointed the Thunder in a rebuilding phase. They clinch the spot in the playoffs last year things to an all-star campaign from Chris Paul but he was sent to the Phoenix Suns in the offseason. Oklahoma City could continue their rebuild by sending away one of their big contracts.
Al Horford would be the name being sent to Milwaukee in this deal. Let’s take a look at what it might look like for these two sides to cook something up at the NBA trade deadline.
