Any Moves to Make?

Bucks seem keen to contending for a playoff spot. That being said, are there any moves that we need to better our chances? I've seen some talk about Josh Smith, but I'm not what we would have to give up to get him. Probably Henson, but Henson looks like a very solid piece to have going forward.

Thoughts?

Re: Any Moves to Make?

Well, they have a lot of big men, so you'd think they could pull off some sort of trade, but I don't have a particular player in mind. I just really want them to get rid of Drew Gooden.

Re: Any Moves to Make?

They'll probably make a minor move to clean up the frontcourt to get a draft pick or rotation player, but I doubt Milwaukee has a blockbuster in store for next month.

Re: Any Moves to Make?

You'd think Dalembert could net you something... if I'm the Bucks I'm trying to consolidate front court players... 7 guys who primary position is the 4 or 5 (though Moute can play the 3).. Sanders, Ilyasova, Pryzbilla, Moute, Gooden, Udoh, Dalembert, Henson... there's some talent in that group that is getting wasted by way of redundancy. I'm not sure who the right consolidation target is, but I'd probably keep Henson, Sanders and Ilyasova and try to move some of the others. Obviously if you can move Gooden you do it, but I have a feeling you'd have to take on someone's bad contract.

Are there any logical places to move Monta? I'd be worried about losing him for nothing.

Re: Any Moves to Make?

I've seen Milwaukee being brought up as a trade destination for Pau Gasol in a few discussions with the main piece the Lakers would be looking to get back taking the form of Ersan. As much as I like Ersan, I feel his consistency will always be an issue so it might be a good thing to get value while we can. The scenario I saw was us trading Ersan/Dalembert/Moute for Gasol which wouldn't be an awful trade by any means. I feel like Pau could thrive being put back into a familiar roll and it gives a low post scoring threat while also clearing up the front court a bit.

As for trading Monta, what about in the Josh Smith scenario? With Lou out for the season, Atlanta will sink or swim depending on what they do at SG.

It might be a bit of pipe dream to think we could land Gasol and Smith, but Jennings/Dunleavey/Smith/Sanders/Gasol would be fun to watch.

Re: Any Moves to Make?

Josh Smith has verbally ripped the city of milwaukee in the past, he is a free agent after this year. Trading for him would be like trading for Gary Payton a few years back.. he would be gone in 3 months. As for Pau, i want nothing to do with him or that contract at this point. If i am trading anything i am looking for young cheap pieces or draft picks in return

Re: Any Moves to Make?

I kind of forgot about Josh's comments about Milwaukee. Although, wasn't that before we matched up with them in the playoffs that year? Seems like he could be trying to get the people of riled up for that reason. Of course I wouldn't want to lose him for nothing, but I like what Josh brings to the table more than Ellis. Not sure what else is out there for Ellis scenarios.

Re: Any Moves to Make?

In reality no nba player wants to come and play in milwaukee.. that's why we have to overpay for mediocre talent.. trading any longterm assests that we have under control for any impending free agent is just irresponsible management in my opinion.. if its ellis for smith and we are likely to lose either of them i would rather have smith for whatever its worth

Re: Any Moves to Make?

Everything you said is sad, but true. I feel like we'll lose either in the long run because I think Monta wants to move on from Milwaukee. Smith would give us the shot in the arm that we need on defense and would likely be more efficient on the offensive side of the ball as well. If we're looking to compete, then it's certainly a move that's worth looking at and then we go for a hail mary to try and keep Smoove.

Re: Any Moves to Make?

So with Rondo out for the Celtics, it seems like we're just about a lock for the playoffs. I don't think that there is any chance that we trade Ersan now given how he's playing lately and management keeps saying that there are no plans to trade Ellis or Jennings. With that being said, are there any realistic moves that we can expect? I have the feeling that if we are dealing, that it won't be big and management might be fine bringing the team as is into the playoffs.

Re: Any Moves to Make?

I think dalembert is gone, i think if we can get a wing or a pick for him it would be worthwhile, they would obviously love to move gooden as well

Report: Bucks interested in trading for Magic guard J.J. Redick

From Marc Stein of ESPN.com:
Quote:
Weekend Dime addendum: Milwaukee now in mix for Magicís JJ Redick. Bucks, Iím told, assessing their ability to retain sharpshooter long term.

To meet asking price for Redick ó expiring(s) and a future first-round pick ó Bucks naturally wanna know they can retain free agent-to-be.
http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.c...rd-j-j-redick/

If we would be able to lock him up long term for cheap I would completely fine with getting JJ.

Milwaukee, arguably the worst market for a NBA team.
