    Yea, the lack of size is pretty crazy. I dont get why they signed stauskas and drafted Merrill in that case. Really felt like if they liked Merrill in the draft, it would have made sense to give stauskas spot to a guy who could legit play at least PF. Maybe they think Wilson will take a step, but I doubt it considering they tried trading him. Perhaps they only traded him because they needed to, but seems like he may potentially play a big role if we have a few injured bigs.

    I did like this guy coming out but unfortunately things didn't pan out for him. He could score, rebound, play d and knock down a 3 here and there. Kinda like Looney

    I think he would eventually get traded. Probably with a package of DD or PatC or both. I can't wait bc the team would finally look complete

    I think Craig would start against the offensively talented teams

    If not DDV.

    Maybe this...

    PG Augustin
    SG Holiday
    SF Middleton
    PF Giannis
    C Brook

    Forbes could get the nod to start as well.

    PG Forbes
    SG Holiday
    SF Middleton
    PF Giannis
    C Brook

    I wasn't happy with the early leak of the sign and trade then rescinded later. But on paper we have a better roster now then last year. Portis is way better then Ersan and Williams and Robin. Bledsoe and Holiday pretty equal for regular season. But playoff Bledsoe is horrible and vanishes. Holiday is a improvement just needs to stay healthy. Hopefully internal growth and DDV turns it op a notch. Giannis will improve yet again. Matthews loss isn't that bad. He was a bull dog for defense with energy. But man he had a hard time many nights scratch for 10 points a game being starting SG. I like what we did going after a few shooters in free agency and draft. Also Hill wasn't the same after the injury come playoffs. He vanished with Bledsoe and DDV.

    Could even have Craig start and D up the best wing on the other team. More less the Wes job last year. Bucks still have plenty of shooters. Yeah we lost Korver but replaced him with Forbes. Replaced Hill with Augustin. Replaced Ersan,Rolo,Williams with Portis. Merrill is a decent shooter we drafted. Coach Bud just has to change his game plan for playoffs and not be stubborn. Brook needs to get his shooting touch back. When we had him on the cheap he was money. Then he got paid last season and was cold out of the gates for regular season.
    Lol! I would 2nd that GROSS😝!!
    If we don't upgrade the sg with a trade I like Forbes in the starting lineup. He provide good spacing for Giannis. Augustine and DD can play together. I think Augustine can help DD game alot. DD needs to be more of an attacker and slasher drawing fouls and then kill them with a set 3 here and there.

    Holiday
    Forbes
    Middleton
    Giannis
    Brolo
    2nd
    Augustine
    DD
    Craig, Nora, PatC
    Portis,Wilson?
    Giannis,Brolo,Portis,?

    They did right, although it would have been a come up for us. It wasn't a need for to take DD who is not better than any guard they got and a declining Hill that is basically underwhelming too

    Torey Craig will be our starting sg when its time to turn into Big Game Craig or Playoff Craig....call on him only when things are serious!

I think I like Forbes starting getting wide open looks probably starting. Then Augustin-DD leading bench. But as I said I think bud goes with DD. Then Augustin/Forbes/PC/Craig/Portis

    Bench could be pretty small. I don't think Nwora will play that much. Could use a big wing with some offense and a big yet. I don't mind playing small some and playoff time I think we should but in regular season Portis as backup big is really it. Wings we have kind of small and still spot up guys on the bench.

    I do really like the AUgustin-Jrue combo with DDV playing Hill role but hopefully little more dynamic.
    I think Nwora would get some decent sf time

    I think Merrill isn't the guy to look at with the Nik signing. Its PatC and DD. The Bucks feel that Nik talent is not far off from PatC or DD. Heck he might be better than one or both of them. So if he is better it would only make it that much easier to make a trade with Wilson for a back up big or a starting sg

    What does this look like for a rotation

    1)Holiday 24, Augustine 20, Forbes 4
    2)Divencenzo, 24, Forbes 16, Holiday 8
    3)Middleton 30, Connaugton 18
    4) Giannis 20, Craig 20, Portis 8
    5) Lopez 26, Giannis 12, Portis 10

    Obviously the opponent might mean Craig plays his 20 at the 3 and Pat or Forbes don't play much with some of the other bigs getting more minutes. I don't know if we have a move left in us but a trade for a big would make sense. I wouldn't mind a guy like Dewayne Dedmon or Jordan Bell other guys like Skal Labissiere or Taj Gibson would be ok. I worry about Portis and DJ being the backup C's when we play a good big.

    I was asking if Stauskas was a camp deal. Like not fully guaranteed and can be waived anytime if we have a better buyout option when vets get bought out.

    It's not bad but I think Portis would get more than 18 minutes a game. As the team currently constructed I can see him playing 24 to 29 minutes per game
