NBA Trade 2018-19 Review: Milwaukee Bucks - Mirotic Arrives, Davis Slips Away & more
#2 The generational talent in Anthony Davis eludes the Bucks just like all the other teams
Midway through the trade window, the Bucks emerged as dark horses in the rat race to land the future MVP in Anthony Davis.
According to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor,
New Orleans has options right now. The Lakers, Knicks, Bucks, and Raptors are expected to make trade offers for Davis ahead of the deadline, according to multiple front-office sources.
Running with the Lakers and Celtics, the Bucks offered everything but their main man Giannis to the Pelicans for AD.
Many did fantasize about the monster pairing of Antetokounmpo and Davis in Milwaukee's front-court, but that would have come at a cost of at least Bledsoe, Brogdon, Middleton, and picks. In retrospect, Pelicans GM Demps' demands turned out to be outrageous even for the frontrunners in LA as well as Boston who possessed the most assets, and so the Bucks front office had to swiftly wake themselves up from the potential AD-in-Milwaukee dream.
