Looks like Milwaukee Bucks have their mind set on trading. Unfortunately, the players they are looking to deal suck. None of the 3 (Gadzuric: 6'11/245, Simmons: 6'6/230, Villanueva: 6'11/238) can shot block (Gadzuric has the highest avg @ 0.4) or rebound (Simmons @ 3.0). A rebounding and shot blocking big man is what we need right now. Mo Williams as a back up for Baron (In case CJ doesn't pan out) would be nice. Bogut or Yi would be awesome. Redd is not going anywhere.
So, who will the Bucks try to acquire before the Feb. 21 deadline? That’s the $64,000 question. It’s no secret, though, the Bucks would like to acquire an athletic small forward like Golden State’s Mickael Pietrus, who not only has a small contract ($3.47M) but a willingness to play defense.
The Bucks, who are apparently open to dealing Charlie Villanueva, Bobby Simmons, Charlie Bell or Dan Gadzuric, will have a plethora of options besides Pietrus. That’s because seldom, if ever, has there been so many quality players available before the in-season deadline.www.hoopshype.com
