NBA Trade Rumors: Milwaukee Bucks to be players at trade deadline


The Milwaukee Bucks are cruising to a record that will land them a good chance at the No. 1 overall pick and at the very least solidify them in the lottery. One way the Bucks can continue to tank and also build for the future is to sell off assets at the trade deadline, something they’re expected to do.

According to Basketball Insiders, the Bucks are expected to be players at the deadline although nothing seems to be imminent at this point in time.

They are active. But nothing thats close to happening. I think they’ll be a player on February 20th simply because they have ending contracts and veterans that could help other teams.

Who the Bucks sell at the deadline is the real question as Larry Sanders remains an option, although Ersan Ilyasova seems to be the more likely guy to go.

Still, the Bucks want picks and they want them now, which means selling off some big names will be what happens at the deadline for Milwaukee.

    They should move Luke Ridnour. He is a nice locker room presence but a contender could really use him and the bucks could nab a young player and or a second round pick. And if the Spurs got him that would be awesome!
