Milwaukee Bucks rumors: Still looking for a point guard

The Milwaukee Bucks have plenty of holes to fill on their roster, though the recent addition of Jason Kidd as their head coach should hopefully help their relatively weak point guard position. Also helping is their pursuit to get better as they’ve already been linked to multiple players in attempts to fill the void.

There have been rumors suggesting that the Milwaukee Bucks may offer Eric Bledsoe of the Phoenix Suns a contract, however given his restricted status and the Suns desire to keep him on their roster (they have plenty of money to do so), that seems like an unlikely match.

Also of interest has been Greivis Vasquez, another restricted free agent. Vasquez spent last season split between the Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors, though after the Raptors tied up significant cash in re-signing Kyle Lowry the Raptors may not be inclined to spend more on Vasquez.

Whatever the case, it’s clear the Bucks are looking to improve their one guard for the upcoming season.

One player who isn’t likely to be targeted is Jeremy Lin of the Houston Rockets. Despite liking his on-court play, the Bucks only have $12-13 million dollars of available cap room and don’t appear interested in using it on Lin.

In addition to looking into free agency, the Milwaukee Bucks could attempt to field trades to improve their point guard position though rumors have hinted they’re not willing to part with Larry Sanders yet, a player most teams would target in a prospective trade scenario.
