The Milwaukee Bucks are currently the worst team in the NBA – at least standings wise – and it isn’t even close.
So could a massive trade be in the works come the February trade deadline? Not likely, this according to ESPN’s Chad Ford who suggested otherwise on Wednesday morning.
Unless a major trade-deadline deal shakes up the team (unlikely, according to sources), the Bucks look nearly certain to have the best chance to lock up a No. 1 pick on lottery night.
By ‘major trade’ Ford is suggesting the team trade their upcoming lottery pick for a superstar. That doesn’t mean the Bucks won’t be sellers come the deadline as they have a handful of veteran players with expiring contracts that could be of interest to playoff level teams.
Anything the Bucks can get for either player should be seen as a positive considering neither has a future in Milwaukee past this season.
