The Milwaukee Bucks' golden run continues this season, and they are currently placed at the second spot in the Eastern Conference with 30-12 win-loss record. Led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, this team has been performing exceptionally well and are definitely going to make some noise in the playoffs.

The Bucks are already looking like true contenders and have beat other association powerhouses like Golden State, Houston, Toronto (twice) this season. The team is built to win championships but in the NBA, when you have a team like Golden State, who will have five All-Star starters come playoffs, you cannot get complacent.

The front office cannot slack and needs to keep looking for ways to get better and be at their best in the playoffs. In this article, we take a look at the three players the Bucks need to trade for to bolster their lineup.

Kevin Love is currently out of action with a toe injury and he doesn't have a clear timetable at this point in time. However, once he returns, the rumours will start again and several NBA teams will look at him more cautiously.

In the 2018 offseason, Love signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The value Love brings to the table is not something unknown and he can be a great stretch option playing alongside the 'Greek Freak'.

Love played a huge part when the Cavaliers won the title in 2016 and even though his numbers took a dip when he came to Cleveland from Minnesota, no one can question the impact he creates on the game.

The Bucks can trade Ersan Ilyasova as part of the deal for Love and it will definitely help this team in the playoffs. However, the team would also want to look at how he performs once he is back before going for him.
