The Milwaukee Bucks are one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. However, it is a general consensus that they need to add a piece or two to help the team especially on offense. While there have been minor trades here and there, one massive 3-team trade has the Bucks landing a top player in Bradley Beal.
Milwaukee Bucks 3-Team Trade Lands Bradley Beal
This 3-team trade involves the Lakes and the Wizards. It involves seven players and a couple of first round picks. Below is the proposed trade.
Milwaukee Bucks Receive: Bradley Beal
The Bucks give up a couple of young players as well as Khris Middleton. The 2029 first-round pick helps sweeten the deal. Middleton would head to the Lakers and they would also get Kyle Kuzma back. The Wizards would receive the most in the deal with lots of young players and picks.
Evaluating The Trade
I love this trade. The Bucks have been playing without Middleton all season. There is also a growing concern that he will test free agency and leave after the season anyway. Beal is one of the top scorers in the league and would free up room for Giannis Antetokounmpo and other shooters. Losing the draft pick is unfortunate but not terrible. This is a completely hypothetical trade but if it was on the table, the Milwaukee Bucks should do it in a heartbeat.
The trade deadline is a couple weeks away. Expect a flurry of trades as teams try to improve their roster for the playoff push.
