The NBA Draft is quickly approaching and trade rumors, especially ones including the Milwaukee Bucks, are heating up. Reportedly, Milwaukee attempted to talk to Bradley Beal, but he was set on going to the Phoenix Suns.
Indeed, the Bucks may be looking to get a true point guard so that Jrue Holiday can play shooting guard. According to Sam Amico of Hoops Wire, Milwaukee is one of the teams that may be interested in Utah Jazz point guard Colin Sexton, who was just made available in trade talks.
Is It Possible for the Milwaukee Bucks to Trade for Colin Sexton?
According to Amico:
“Sexton was acquired as part of the Donovan Mitchell trade with the Cavaliers last summer, signing a four-year deal worth $72 million in the process.
“There is a sense around the league that shooting guard Ochai Agbaji has emerged as the better option in the long run. Agbaji was a rookie last season and came on strong at the end. He was also acquired in the Mitchell trade.
“The Wizards, Clippers, Hornets and Bucks are among the teams that could have an interest in Sexton.
The contract that Sexton signed will pay him an average of $18 million over the next three years. In order to acquire him, the Bucks would likely have to send a combination of Bobby Portis, Grayson Allen, and/or Pat Connaughton. Allen would make sense in this trade, but the other two would create even more depth issues for the Bucks.
Sexton did average 14.3 points per game last season in 48 games while shooting 51% from the field. He also shot 39% from three.
While it was Sexton’s best shooting season of his career, 14.3 points per game was the lowest of his career. His best-scoring season came in 2020-21 when he averaged 24.3 points with the Cavaliers.
