It is an open secret in the NBA that the Bucks are going to try to trade Eric Bledsoe, although no current trade discussions are taking place, a league source said on Thursday. What needs to be discussed in the days and weeks ahead is whether moving Middleton for a more proven playoff performer needs to happen, too.
ANALYSIS: The Bucks know they will have to make changes to their roster this off-season after a disappointing second round exit to the Miami Heat. Even before Giannis went down with an ankle injury, the Bucks did not look too confident in the bubble and did not seem like the same Milwaukee team that dominated the regular season.
The Bucks will look to do anything they can to improve the roster and retain Giannis Antetokounmpo as he is entering the final year of his contract, and is not expected to sign an extension this off-season.
