Milwaukee Bucks:

    Wesley Matthews is leaving Milwaukee and joining the Lakers. The Los Angeles Lakers might’ve made an extremely savvy move by trading for Dennis Schroder, but the deal cost them Danny Green, a veteran who will give you competence on both ends of the floor. In order to replace a veteran 3-and-D guard, the Lakers found another aging sniper on the free-agent market, as they coaxed Wesley Matthews into leaving the Milwaukee Bucks for the famous purple and gold. Matthews left the Bucks for LeBron James and the Lakers, agreeing to a one-year contract worth just $3.6 million, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania: Wes Matthews is signing a one-year, $3.6M deal with the LA Lakers, sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. https://t.co/fYHthoXFjE —...
    The Milwaukee Bucks might be facing a penalty for getting too aggressive in their chase to build a winner around two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. The NBA is investigating the Bucks for possible tampering as a result of a botched sign-and-trade agreement with the Sacramento Kings, according to The New York Times. The focus is on how or if the parameters of the trade were agreed upon, the Associated Press said. ESPN reported Monday a sign-and-trade agreement for the Bucks to acquire shooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic from the Kings for Donte DiVincenzo, D.J. Wilson and Ersan Ilyasova. But Bogdanovic becomes a restricted free agent at 6 p.m. Friday – he cannot legally talk to other teams until then – and was...
    After playing in New Orleans for seven years, the Pelicans traded away defensive stalwart Jrue Holiday to the Milwaukee Bucks. He was an excellent secondary star for them and is one of the most underrated players in the league. His former teammate JJ Redick recently spoke about how the trade was a win for both sides involved. Redick said he had a feeling this move was coming. He said, “He’s got a great chance to win a championship. A great chance to, at the very least, to win the East and play in the Finals, which is more important for him. For us, we get Eric Bledsoe, George Hill, and a bunch of picks. Both teams won that trade.”  ...
    Getty George Hill with former Milwaukee Bucks. With the NBA draft finally in the rearview mirror, teams can start officially makings trades. The Los Angeles Lakers already pulled off one big deal but that doesn’t mean they’re quite done yet. It’s possible they could lose some key players in free agency and will need to replace them. George Hill just got traded from the Milwaukee Bucks to the New Orleans Hornets as part of the Jrue Holiday deal. However, it appears his time in the Big Easy won’t last all that long. According to Gery Woelfel of Woelfel’s Pressbox, Hill will garner interest across the league and the Lakers are among the teams who could make an offer:...
    It looks like Bogdan Bogdanovic might not be joining the Milwaukee Bucks after all, contrary to earlier reports. Hours before Wednesday’s NBA Draft, multiple sources suggested that the erstwhile Sacramento Kings guard/forward was planning to enter restricted free agency instead of joining forces with two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and the rest of his teammates on the Eastern Conference powerhouse. As reported by ESPN on Wednesday, the Kings and Bucks had agreed in principle to a deal that would have sent the Serbian wingman and Justin James to Milwaukee in exchange for reserves Donte DiVincenzo, D.J. Wilson, and Ersan Ilyasova. This transaction would have required Bogdanovic to join the Bucks via sign-and-trade, given his status as an incoming free agent. However,...
    After being selected by the Milwaukee Bucks, R.J. Hampton’s crew launched his draft hat across the living room. As is NBA Draft tradition, there are moments of confusion when it comes to draft prospects getting traded immediately after being selected by the team. Unfortunately for United States shooting guard R.J. Hampton, he had to go through that very experience. Hampton was selected with the 24th overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans, by way of the Milwaukee Bucks in the Jrue Holiday trade. However, the Pelican then flipped the selection to the Denver Nuggets. Hampton’s family and crew were obviously puzzled as to which hat he was supposed to wear on camera for his interview. In said moment, Hampton hands...
    The Milwaukee Bucks might not get Bogdan Bogdanovic after all. On Monday, the Milwaukee Bucks made their convincing albeit imperfect pitch for Giannis Antetokounmpo to sign a super-max contract extension this summer. By agreeing to trade for Jrue Holiday, and agreeing to a sign-and-trade for Bogdan Bogdanovic, the Bucks would ship off all their young players and draft picks for the foreseeable future to keep their title window open and their two-time reigning MVP happy. Unfortunately, it’s starting to look like the latter part of that deal, the Bogdanovic sign-and-trade with the Sacramento Kings, could be falling apart. The Athletic’s Sam Amick first reported the deal for Bogdanovic, which revolved around sending Ersan Ilyasova, Donte DiVincenzo and D.J. Wilson to...

    The Milwaukee Bucks further bolstered their starting five by acquiring the talented playmaker from the Sacramento Kings. Milwaukee wasted no time trying to appease Giannis Antetokounmpo. He’ll need his jump shot to become more consistent to take his game to the next level, though he did improve his 3-point percentage from 26.5 to 33.6 from his first to second seasons. Theoretically, Wilson, 24, has intriguing upside as a stretch-5, but it simply didn’t pan out in Milwaukee. His minutes were halved last season from 2018-19, and he averaged 3.6 points per game as a bit player. It’s worth a flyer just in case a change of scenery is welcome for Wilson – if he doesn’t get buried in Sacramento’s crowded...

They have established themselves as serious title contenders in the last few years. However, they have been unable to get over a bump in the postseason.

Speaking of making improvements, the Bucks lack talent at the guard position. According to NBA insider Brandon Robinson, the Bucks are planning to trade for new players at the position. “Milwaukee Bucks are looking to add a high impact player at the guard position...
    In 2018, the Toronto Raptors traded away DeMar DeRozan, their franchise player, to the San Antonio Spurs. In his two seasons there, there have been multiple reports stating that he is unhappy there. And now, in the upcoming Free Agency, he can finally move away. According to NBA insider Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson, the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks have shown interest in the four-time All-Star. Both of the teams would have to engage in a sign and trade since they don’t have the cap space to sign him as a free agent. But do either of these teams get better with DeMar on the team?

    Since they got eliminated by the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Semifinals, rumors have been continuously swirling around All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook and his future with the Houston Rockets. Though the Rockets have already denied the speculations that they are planning to trade him, most people are still expecting Westbrook to change teams this offseason. One of the teams that could express interest in trading for Westbrook is the Milwaukee Bucks. According to Danny Cunningham of Complex, the Bucks could acquire Westbrook by sending a package that includes Ersan Ilyasova, Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez, Eric Bledsoe, and a 2020 first-round pick to the Rockets. The deal works on ESPN‘s NBA Trade Machine. Though his fit in Milwaukee...
    As the clock wound down before the Bucks’ boycotted an NBA playoff game against the Magic, veteran guard Kyle Korver looked down at his uniform with tears running down his face. On the back, it said “Black Lives Matter.” The Jacob Blake shooting had recently taken place in Kenosha, Wis., and Korver wondered to himself, “What are we doing?” Korver opened up Sunday at his alma mater, Creighton University, about the Bucks’ decision to boycott their Aug. 26 game against the Magic. That decision led to two days in which the sports world went mostly on pause, with no games in the NBA or WNBA, while other leagues had varying degrees of protest, as well. Korver detailed what the moments...

    MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee Bucks guard George Hill said the importance of Wisconsin in the upcoming election caused him to fly back here this weekend to assist in a local voting drive. Hill, who lives in San Antonio, worked alongside about 50 volunteers from the Milwaukee-based organization Common Ground walking through local neighborhoods Saturday to remind people to vote. “This (state) could make or break the election,” Hill said. “To spend a couple of dollars to get on a flight to come back here, to get out and knock on doors and go around this city, to show them that I care for them just as much as they care for themselves, and show them that we need them, we...

    The Victor Oladipo trade rumor mill keeps churning new chapters. The Indiana Pacers star has been primed to leave, with Miami Heat supposedly interested. But the latest team to enter the fray is the Milwaukee Bucks. During his recent podcast, ESPN’s Zack Lowe said, “I’ll give you a team I’m keeping an eye on with Victor Oladipo…Milwaukee. Just keeping my eye on them…that’s all I’m saying, that’s all I’m going to say.” After initial reports linking them to Chris Paul, the focus is now on another All-Star guard in Oladipo. His $21m contract will be much easier to trade for instead of Paul’s $41m contract. Although Oladipo isn’t as good as Paul, it is a more viable option for the...
    The Milwaukee Bucks had a great 2019/20 regular-season but failed to replicate the same in the Playoffs. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Co. were sent home in convincing fashion by the Miami Heat as the Bucks just weren’t up to the mark. This has got Stephen A. Smith worried that the Bucks might lose Giannis to another team in the NBA. Before the pandemic wreaked havoc, Giannis Antetokounmpo played some of the best basketball in his life.

    Since being upset by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, rumors have been continuously swirling around reigning MVP and DPOY Giannis Antetokounmpo and his future with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks may have publicly stated their plan to offer Antetokounmpo a massive contract extension but as of now, he hasn’t given them any assurance if he will ink a new deal or test the free agency market in the summer of 2021. All teams in the league are closely monitoring Antetokounmpo’s situation in Milwaukee. If he refuses to sign an extension, most people believe that the Bucks will be left with no choice but to start listening to offers for the “Greek Freak.” However, whether he accepts their...
    He may not be eligible to become a free agent until 2021, but all eyes will be on Giannis Antetokounmpo this offseason. The Bucks will offer the two-time MVP a five-year supermax extension when free agency kicks off — there is no doubt about that. The big question is whether he will sign on the dotted line or turn down that contract and explore his options after the 2020-21 season.

    After failing to win the NBA championship title this season, rumors have started to swirl around All-Star power forward Paul George and his future with the Los Angeles Clippers. With his inability to live up to expectations as their second-best player next to Kawhi Leonard, there are speculations that the Clippers could explore moving him in the 2020 offseason. Despite his inconsistencies in his first year in Los Angeles, the Clippers aren’t expected to have a hard time finding a trade partner for George this fall. One of the teams that could aggressively pursue PG on the trading block is the Milwaukee Bucks. To prevent Giannis Antetokounmpo from demanding a trade or leaving as an unrestricted free agent in the...
    In a recent article, Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report created a list of trades to rescue “NBA’s ringless stars” like All-Star shooting guard Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards. He may have said on numerous occasions that he wants to finish his career in Washington, but if he doesn’t want to retire without winning a championship title, it would be best for him to take his talent somewhere else. One of the ideal landing spots for Beal is the Milwaukee Bucks where he could join forces with reigning DPOY and MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. To acquire Beal, Buckley suggested that the Bucks could engage in a three-team blockbuster deal with the Wizards and the Portland Trail Blazers. In the proposed scenario,...
    Former NBA guard Kenny Smith walked off the “NBA on TNT” set in August in solidarity with players who refused to play in their playoff game over the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin.

    After the Milwaukee Bucks got surprisingly eliminated by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, rumors have started to swirl around reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and his future with the team. With their inability to contend for the NBA championship title, most people believe that Antetokounmpo will follow the footsteps of other superstars and find his way out of Milwaukee in the 2020 offseason. He may be under contract with the Bucks for another season, but if he declines to sign the massive contract extension that they are planning to offer this fall, they could be left with no choice but to make him available on the trading block. However, there are still some people who think that Antetokounmpo...
    Giannis Antetokounmpo is en route to creating an unforgettable legacy. Undoubtedly, he is one of the most lethal weapons the Milwaukee Bucks possess, and there is a trail of awards to back that up. While many campaigned for the Los Angeles Lakers‘ Anthony Davis to win the DPOY, Giannis took it home instead. If that wasn’t enough, he also won the league MVP for the second time consecutively and has his name engraved on the Most Improved Player award as well. He has created history by being the third player ever to win the DPOY and MVP in the same year, joining the likes of Michael Jordan and Hakeem Olajuwon. It looks like the star player is proud of his...

The league’s reigning back-to-back MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who declined a contract extension with the Bucks last year, will be entering the final year of his contract in 2021. Without a long-term commitment, Horst has to consider either dealing The Greek Freak or try to convince him to stay. But can Milwaukee miraculously improve its roster in one off-season? With over $90 million on the books for Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe, Brook Lopez, and Giannis, there’s not a whole lot of money left for the Bucks to offer an impending free...
    After suffering an early exit in the 2020 Playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks are highly expected to make a huge roster overhaul in the 2020 offseason. To keep the face of the franchise, Giannis Antetokounmpo, happy in Milwaukee, they should find ways to improve their current roster this fall. One of the areas that the Bucks need major improvement is the point guard position. In the past months, rumors are circulating that the Bucks are planning to find a replacement for Eric Bledsoe in the 2020 offseason. Aside from Oklahoma City Thunder star Chris Paul, another intriguing target for the Bucks this fall is veteran point guard Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors.

    While accepting his second straight NBA Most Valuable Player award on Friday, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo offered hints about how he is approaching his future with the franchise. Specifically, he expressed a desire to stay with the team for the remainder of his career, provided that the two sides remain on the same page with regard to their ultimate goal. For Antetokounmpo, that means putting forth their best effort to win a championship. “As long as everybody’s fighting for the same thing, which is to be a champion, I don’t see why not to be in Milwaukee for the next 15 years,” he told Ernie Johnson on NBA TV, via ESPN, after accepting his trophy.

    Every member of the Bucks organization knows the 2020 offseason isn’t just about improving in the hopes of reaching the NBA Finals for the first time since 1974. It’s also about showing Giannis Antetokounmpo that Milwaukee is where he should spend the rest of his career. The reigning MVP isn’t eligible to become a free agent until after the 2020-21 season, but he can sign a five-year supermax extension with the Bucks this year. If he turns down the supermax, Antetokounmpo could play out the season and hit unrestricted free agency in 2021 or inform Milwaukee he is leaving no matter what happens, which would spark plenty of trade rumors.

To keep the face of the franchise, Giannis Antetokounmpo, happy in Milwaukee, they should show that they are serious in surrounding him with quality players that could help him in fully dominating the Eastern Conference and capturing the Larry O’Brien Trophy next year. Though he’s older, Paul is still a better player than Eric Bledsoe and would give the Bucks a massive upgrade at the point guard position. However, bringing CP3 to Milwaukee wouldn’t be easy.

    Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry told Giannis Antetokounmpo over a three-hour lunch meeting Friday the organization is willing to spend into the luxury tax to surround the reigning MVP with championship-caliber pieces, according to ESPN.com. For the 2020-21 season, Milwaukee’s payroll will be close to the proposed $132.7 million luxury-tax threshold. Lasry, Antetokounmpo and his agent, Alex Saratsis, got together to discuss the Bucks’ season and disappointing loss to the Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals. They also explored potential personnel upgrades that may be available to the franchise this upcoming offseason.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was approaching his super-max decision. His supporting cast was aging. Yet, Milwaukee didn’t even pay the luxury tax to build the best possible team. That looks especially suspect after the Bucks’ second-round flameout against the Heat. So, in perhaps a last–ditch effort,...
    Few teams in NBA history have had such a stark contrast between their regular season and playoff success. As a result, the Milwaukee Bucks’ young superstar may be on his way out. If I told you that your favorite team would earn the No. 1 seed in back-to-back years, and on top of that employ the league’s Most Valuable Player in both seasons, you’d be pretty ecstatic. Winning 60 games one year, being on pace for that threshold a second straight season, and rostering one of three players to ever win MVP and Defensive Player of the Year in the same season is, in fact, pretty awesome. But like their offense, their defense is much easier to hone in on...

    Right Before making it to the Eastern Conference Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks met with a disappointing end. They were sent packing from the playoffs this season by the Miami Heat by taking a 4-1 lead. There was a lot of pressure for the Bucks to make it to the NBA Finals this year because there were speculations that their star player, Giannis Antetokounmpo plans on leaving the team if they performed poorly this time.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo had another poor postseason run with the Milwaukee Bucks. The top-seeded team in the East was eliminated in just the second-round. Additionally, Giannis struggled all series against the Miami Heat’s defense. The Gree Freak might win his second MVP soon, but it seems like his journey as a Bucks player is approaching its end. Many teams are interested to acquire the reigning MVP if the Bucks are open to talking about a potential trade. Moreover, even if the Bucks do not trade him, there is always a chance Giannis might walk out in the 2021 free agency. For Milwaukee, letting a superstar go without a return could mean trouble. So, they should indeed trade him, if he wants...
    It was a sad end for the Milwaukee Bucks‘ journey in the Playoffs. Despite being one of the best teams in the regular season and landing the top seed in the Eastern Conference, the Bucks really struggled in the Orlando Bubble. They just weren’t the same after the season resumed in Orlando. That was evident after their unexpected 4-1 loss against the Miami Heat in the second round of the Playoffs. After seeing their horrible performance, there were many speculations about their star player Giannis Antetokounmpo being up for trade. Not only that, but even their coach Mike Budenholzer’s job was also supposedly hanging in the balance. However, a twist has arrived amidst these rumors. A new player has come...
    After establishing an impressive performance in his first year with the Oklahoma City Thunder, veteran point guard Chris Paul is expected to be one of the most coveted players on the trade market this fall. Though he’s already on the downside of his career, Paul showed that he still has plenty of gas left in his tank and could help a legitimate title contender that is in dire need of a backcourt boost. One of the teams who is rumored to be very interested in trading for Paul in the 2020 offseason is the Milwaukee Bucks. According to Andy Bailey of Bleacher Report, the Bucks could be desperate enough to seek help from the Point God this fall. Unlike other...
    Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks are out of the playoffs as the #1 seed in the East. Moreover, they lost to a much lower-seeded team in the Miami Heat. The bitter defeat has left the basketball world stunned and rumors are starting to pile up regarding Giannis’ departure from the Bucks. Although the Greek Freak does not enter free agency until 2021, the Bucks can never be 100% sure. Giannis will most likely bag his second MVP this season. But all his efforts will go in vain as the Bucks are already on their way home. If the Bucks do decide to trade Giannis, the Heat are the front runners to land Giannis in South Beach.

Giannis went down with an injury in Game 4 but didn’t play particularly well beforehand, topping 21 points just once in the series after averaging 29.5 points per game in the regular season. The NBA MVP has one more season before he is a free agent, and his injury and early playoff exit have prompted speculation as to which team could bid for the star’s services in 2021.

    MILWAUKEE (AP) — Posting the NBA’s best record once again couldn’t help the Milwaukee Bucks win a conference title, let alone a league championship. The top seed in the playoffs will spend the rest of the postseason wondering why it couldn’t ever regain its pre-hiatus form in the Disney bubble. Milwaukee was 53-12 when the coronavirus pandemic caused play to shut down for 4 ½ months. The Bucks went 8-10 after the season resumed in Florida, including a 4-1 loss in a best-of-7 Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Miami Heat. They never seemed to adapt to playing without fans as well as other teams did. “At the end of the day, every team went through that,” said Giannis...

    The Miami Heat have taken an unlikely 3-1 series lead over the Milwaukee Bucks. While they say it isn’t over until it’s over, most people think that this series is done. Especially with Giannis Antetokounmpo having his share of injury issues. It seems unlikely that Milwaukee can win three more games to overcome a 3-0 playoff deficit. Not that it’s just hard for them, but it is something that has never been done before. One of the biggest reasons for this surprising playoff mismatch has been the coaching of both teams. Miami is led by Pat Riley disciple Erik Spoelstra, who won two championships as the Heat’s HC in 2012 and 2013. Bucks are led by 2019 Coach of the...

Moreover, they saved themselves from the embarrassment of being swept by a lower-seeded team. That being said, they are still on the verge of elimination heading into game 5 of the series. On the other hand, Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat will be looking forward to wrapping up the series in the upcoming game. Although they stunned the basketball world...
