Shocking news came out this week when it was announced that the Milwaukee Bucks would look to move veteran Serge Ibaka. Ibaka reportedly had some issues with the team and wanted to move on. The Bucks decided to grant his request and will search for a trade partner. The good news about this is the Bucks can use Ibaka as a trade piece. There is one possible option out there that sends Serge Ibaka to the Clippers for guard John Wall.

Milwaukee Bucks: Serge Ibaka For John Wall?
The Clippers have been vocal about needing a big man before the trade deadline passes. The rumor is that they are willing to give up John Wall to do it. Wall would add some much-needed playmaking and scoring to the Bucks. While he is nowhere near the player he was in the past, he isn’t completely washed up either. He is averaging 11.4 points, 5.2 assists, and 2.7 rebounds per game. The Bucks don’t need a number-one option. They need some complementary scoring and this would be a great fit.
What Move (Or Moves) Will The Bucks Makes?
There are so many possibilities on the table. I myself have written about a possible trade for Pistons guard Alec Burks as well as an insane three-teamer that gets the Bucks Bradley Beal. This is in addition to the rumors of Jae Crowder and Cam Reddish. The sense is that the Bucks will make some sort of move to multiple moves. The question every fan has is which ones? Other teams are interested in these pieces and the Bucks don’t want to be left high and dry.
I love this trade. Serge Ibaka doesn’t want to be in Milwaukee anyway. Even if John Wall is average, he is better than a player who doesn’t want to be on the team. The trade deadline is fast approaching. Get ready for lots of teams to try and improve their rosters for the playoff push.
