    A way for Bucks to land Butler, while keep Middleton

    Hawks receive: Henson & Dellavedova (both waived), Maker, Wilson and 3x2nd picks from Bucks, Wolves & Kings respectively.
    Kings receive: Divicenzo & Dieng
    Wolves receive: Bledsoe, Snell & Dedmon
    Bucks receive: Koufos, Butler and Lin

    Wolves: Get rid of Dieng's contract, take back Bledsoe, so that that they can then trade Teague to the Suns after having upgrade their PG position, take back Snell who is 40% 3pt shooter and fill their empty SG/SF spot and add Dedmon as to upgrade and replace Dieng in the roster... Bledsoe will sign an extention for less than he now makes.

    Hawks: Add 26M in their books (falling out of the sky) for 19/20 season as to avoid being taxed for being below the minimum salaries limit, get 3 picks and 2 young assets.

    Kings: Get the PG they are looking for and then on his rookie contract and upgrade (expiring) Koufos for Dieng...

    Bucks give away 7 players, among which are 4 unwanted or bad contracts on Dellavedova, Henson, Wilson & Maker, they replace Bledsoe with Lin and they make a huge upgrade by replacing Snell with Butler in their roster at the penalty of loosing rookie Divicenzo.

    EDIT: Additionally, the Bucks create the cap space required as to resign both Middleton and Butler and can even be after an All-Star PG (Kemba or Kyrie?) as to compete up there with GSW...
    I believe, if this trade would work, the Bucks should be after Kemba Walker later in this season, by offering Brogdon & Ilyasova + smth in return... They could end up in the finals, seriously challenging GSW for this season's title if they would do this....

    EDIT-2: Chances of this proposal to work are extremely high, because other than the above mentioned, the Kings get the best they could hope for... The Kings have a strong case here as to support this, because they are the ones that "eat" Dieng's contract... They shouldn't let Thibs throwing a 1st into them instead of a player for PG, because on Divicenzo, they do get a 1st a year earlier (which accelerates their rebuilding process by a whole season) and have their own (much higher in ranking) pick to choose another PG next season...

    In the Wolves vs. Bucks game that took place in Iowa yesterday, the Wolves seemed to have a severe problem with their wings without Butler in the team...

    I therefore converted the above deal, so that there are two SG/SF wings are added in the Wolves roster:

    Hawks receive: M.Delavedova & J.Henson (both waived) + 3x2nd picks from Kings, Bucks & Wolves respectively

    Kings receive: D. Divicenzo & G.Dieng

    Wolves receive: T.Snell, K. Bazemore & T. Maker

    Bucks receive: J.Butler & K.Koufos

    Alternatively, same deal but instead of D.Divicenco, Kings receive M.Brogdon but give back a 1st to the Bucks.

    I think one of those two proposals, should fully satisfy all teams involved:

    1. Includes Middleton:

    Hawks receive: Dellavedova, Henson and 3x2nd picks from Bucks, Wolves & Kings

    Kings receive: Dieng, Morris & Frazier and a 1st pick from Wolves

    Wolves receive: Middleton, Bazemore & T.Maker

    Bucks receive: Butler & Koufos

    2. Doesn't include Middleton:

    Hawks receive: Dellavedova, Henson and 3x2nd picks from Bucks, Wolves & Kings

    Kings receive: Dieng & Divicenzo

    Wolves receive: Snell, Bazemore & T.Maker

    Bucks receive: Butler & Koufos

    Although a Buck, I would prefer the first deal because I think that if the Bucks would resign both Middleton and Butler, they won't be able to sign a 3rd All-Star, while if they would trade Middleton, we could make an offer for Kemba walker later this season (Brogdon + Ilyasova + smth) and other than challenge GSW this season, we would have the cap space to resign both Kemba & Butler for next season too.

    I have revised this, so that Wolves also get a 1st pick back...

    Hawks receive: Dellavedova, Henson and 3x2nd picks from Bucks, Wolves & Kings

    Kings receive: Dieng, Morris & Frazier and 2019 1st from Wolves

    Wolves receive: Middleton, Bazemore & T.Maker and 2021 1st from Bucks

    Bucks receive: Butler & Koufos

    That's not going to happen, he's going to the clippers or heat.

    Another deal:

    Suns receice: M.Dellavedova, D.J. Wilson & S. Brown

    Wolves receive: K.Middleton, J.Henson & T.J. Warren and Bucks 2nd (via Wizards)

    Bucks receive: J. Butler, G. Dieng

    Suns get the veteran PG they are looking for, a guard and a wing on their rookie contracts.
    Wolves get Middleton, T.J. Warren a 2nd and replace Dieng with 5M less and a season shorter to expire Henson.
    Bucks get Butler and "eat" Dieng's contract.

    Wolves receive: T. Snell, T. Maker, J.Henson & T.J. Warren + Bucks 2nd (via Kings)

    Bucks receive: J. Butler, G. Dieng

    Another (similar) proposal that involves the same teams but doesn't includes Middleton, is suggested by athletic reporters here: https://dunkingwithwolves.com/2018/1...and-wizards/5/

    Suns receive: PG, Jeff Teague,

    Wolves receive: PG, Eric Bledsoe SF, T.J. Warren C, John Henson PF, D.J. Wilson

    Bucks receive: SG, Jimmy Butler C, Gorgui Dieng.

    Perhaps this would work better than what the athletic reporters suggest:

    Suns receive: G. Dieng, M. Dellavedova, Jodie Meeks, D.J. Wilson + 2nd from Bucks (via Kings)

    Wolves receive: T.J. Warren, T. Snell, T. Maker, S. Brown + 2nd from Bucks (via Wizards)

    Bucks receive: J. Butler, T. Chandler
