The Milwaukee Bucks are headed into a somewhat surprising off-season. After their early exit from the 2023 NBA Playoffs, the Bucks moved on from their head coach Mike Budenholzer. In the wake of the early exit and new head coach for the 2023 season, many are speculating that the Bucks could make a splash move this off-season. As it turns out, the Bucks have been widely named in one massive trade that would land a six-time All-Star.
Milwaukee Bucks Named In Trade That Would Land Six-Time All Star DeMar DeRozan
According to Jack Deignan of Clutch Points:
Chicago Bulls EVP Arturas Karnisovas claimed that he has no intention of initiating a rebuild of the current roster. However, anybody in tune with the current NBA understands that no iteration of the current Bulls roster is going to compete for an NBA championship.
The Milwaukee Bucks should emphasize this to Karnisovas and sweeten the pot just enough to convince him to trade DeMar DeRozan. With DeRozan on the Bucks, they immediately become NBA Finals favorites. He would by far be the best teammate Giannis has ever had, and would fit in perfectly within the culture Giannis has established.
There are a few reasons DeRozan is a perfect fit for the Bucks. One, he is one of the best players in the entire NBA at getting to his spot and converting in the clutch moments. He was a finalist for the inaugural NBA Clutch Player of the Year, yet it was just more of the same for a player that has been clutch his entire career.
Giannis is the only player on the Bucks that can truly be trusted in those moments, and with or without him in the 2023 NBA Playoffs, it still wasn’t enough. Adding DeRozan would add a whole new element to a Bucks team late in the fourth quarter.
The primary reason DeRozan would be a perfect fit for the Bucks is his mentality. Giannis and DeRozan both hail from the school of Mamba, thus being perfect potential teammates. Additionally, DeRozan has yet to win a ring in his career, and he will never be able to win one alone. DeRozan would jump at the opportunity to win with Giannis, as despite how good the Greek Freak is and the fact he can be the best player on a championship team, he will be just as hungry to win another.
They would become the most feared duo in the NBA, simply because of their drive to win games. Forget the fact DeRozan would be an elite scorer joining an already elite team, him and Giannis could be a pairing that would simply refuse to lose.
While it may take some convincing to get the Chicago Bulls to trade one of their best players to their rival in the division, we have seen much crazier things happen in the NBA. This would be a trade that would put the Bucks right back on top in contention for the #1 seed in the East in 2023-24.
