Milwaukee Bucks

For this final location, the Milwaukee Bucks targeting Marvin Williams makes a lot of sense. The Bucks are a serious Finals contender, and they are seeking veteran leadership and scoring in their bench’s frontcourt.

The Bucks can be an easy team to create a deal with, as they will likely be selling draft picks for a cheap price. I expect this being a team that the Hornets can get some easy draft picks from.

This team has a lot of veterans on it, and I think Williams could improve the Bucks’ three-point shooting. The Bucks are currently the 4th ranked team in threes made per game with 13.9, and they could use more reliable shooting from the frontcourt.

The Bucks are also the 29th ranked team in free-throw percentage per game with 72.6%. Luckily for them, Williams is shooting a career-high from the line with 87%. Playoff teams like the Bucks need reliable free throw shooters.

Williams has also given the Hornets a lot of help with his two-point shooting. So far this season, he’s shooting 56% on two-point shots, giving him a new career-high.

Out of every player on the roster, Williams seems like the most tradeable player, and I see him going to a contender. I suspect a trade including Williams would likely come on the day of the trade deadline.
