If the Milwaukee Bucks lack anything, it is a skilled ball handler who can empower Giannis to be who he is. Who better for the job than one of the greatest point guards of recent times? Despite his age, Chris Paul has proven his worth as a winner with the OKC Thunder this season.

If the Milwaukee Bucks can acquire Chris Paul, it also adds another scoring option when Giannis is facing double-teams. Paul's value as a locker room leader will also go a long way to help the Bucks win the title next year.

We look forward to NBA trade rumors to see where Chris Paul ends up next season.


#2 Carmelo Anthony

The Milwaukee Bucks need to improve their outside shooting to complement Giannis' presence in the paint. Carmelo Anthony has been one of the best three-point shooters in the league for a long time. His age has not affected his ability to average at least 15 points a game.

More than anything, Melo can be a threat on the offensive end with his ability to create his own shot. This could free up Giannis by spreading the opponents' defense. Despite his defensive liabilities, the Milwaukee Bucks should not have troubles in incorporating Melo into their defensive rotations. 

Will the Milwaukee Bucks be able to acquire the former superstar who has been extremely content with his place in Portland? Find out as we bring in more NBA trade rumors.
