In a new mock trade from NBA Analysis Network, writer Kenneth Teape has the Milwaukee Bucks acquiring Eric Gordon from the Houston Rockets. This move would make sense for a number of reasons. One, Milwaukee has previously shown interest in Gordon, being listed as one of the frontrunners to land the veteran guard after Houston had, reportedly, begun aggressively shopping him in late July. Two, the Bucks might be motivated to move Grayson Allen following a lack-luster performance in the second round of the playoffs. Three, Milwaukee could use Gordon’s experience, shooting and leadership as much as Gordon could use…

Giannis Antetokounmpo was recently named the #1 power forward in the NBA. In the article “Ranking: The Top 25 power forwards for the 2022-23 season”, writer Frank Urbina has high praise for the 2x MVP. “The Greek Freak, despite not winning MVP in either of the last two seasons, remains arguably the league’s most impactful player thanks to his contributions on both sides of the floor.” He’s right. Despite Nikola Jokic taking the top spot in consecutive seasons, Giannis has considerably been the best, or “most valuable”, player in the association for some time now. Some have even compared…

The Chicago Bulls announced on Tuesday that forward Justin Lewis will undergo surgery on his right ACL. Lewis, allegedly, suffered the injury during a workout away from the team. While the cause of the injury remains unknown, it’s clear the 20-year-old wing will be out indefinitely. Who Is Justin Lewis? The rookie out of Marquette University went unselected in the 2022 NBA Draft, despite projecting as an early to mid second-rounder. As a sophomore, Lewis led the Golden Eagles with a team-high 16.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. Standing a strong 6-foot-7 with an impressive 7’2 wingspan, it’s no…

Bucks fans will have to wait to see Hugo Besson play in the good land green. The 21-year-old will suit up with Metropolitans 92 alongside famed draft-prospect Victor Wembanyama next season.

A Myles Turner trade makes sense for the Bucks in a number of ways. Primarily, Turner is an elite rim-protector and the Indiana Pacers are in the midst of a rebuild. It might be time for the two to part ways, and if there’s one move that would allow the Milwaukee Bucks to upgrade their roster and secure their future, it would be trading for the 25-year-old center. The Trade Proposal (The original trade idea comes from James Piercey of NBAanalysis.net) The Indiana Pacers send Myles Turner to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Brook Lopez, George Hill, a 2024…
