The Milwaukee Bucks are making a run for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, and with the NBA Trade Deadline in the rearview mirror, the buyout market is taking shape.
There aren’t many needs on the Bucks roster, but that won’t stop veteran players from showing interest in the team, especially with the NBA Finals a very likely outcome.
Five-time NBA All-Star John Wall has expressed interest in joining the Milwaukee Bucks after being traded from the Miami Heat back to the Houston Rockets.

This could make sense for the Bucks as well after their trade deadline.
Could The Bucks Make A Run At John Wall?
The Bucks didn’t make a major splash at the deadline, but they did trade away George Hill to the Indiana Pacers and acquired veteran Jae Crowder in another deadline deal.
The Bucks played nine players in the most recent game against the Boston Celtics, and it was Jevon Carter who played backup point guard, going 3-6 from the field with 9 points in a little under 15 minutes.
John Wall can still provide some quality depth and he did well with the Clippers, but LA wanted to go ina. different direction and ultimately landed Bones Hyland in a deal with the Denver Nuggets.

Wall is averaging 11.4 PPG with 5.2 assists this year, and in his last NBA action, he scored 16 points on 6-12 from the field with 7 rebounds and 4 assists against the Nuggets.
Wall wants a chance to make a run at an NBA title, and the Bucks could use his depth on the bench. This move could make sense for both sides.
