    I'm going to expand my earlier trade to include Milwaukee, Golden State and Houston:

    • Milwaukee gets Westbrook, Wiggins, House Jr., Bowman, Paschall, Poole, Golden State's No. 2 pick this year, Utah's second-rounder this year via Golden State, Minnesota's 2021 first-rounder next year via Golden State, Philadelphia's 2021 second-rounder via Houston, Houston's 2023 first-rounder, Houston's 2024 second-rounder via Golden State and Houston's 2025 second-rounder.
    • Golden State gets Giannis, Thanasis and George Hill.
    • Houston gets Draymond, Lopez and Bledsoe.

    Milwaukee has an epic number of picks to go with several talented young players. And this is only the beginning of their rebuild. They can still flip Westbrook and Middleton for assets. Wiggins, again, could develop into an asset or a massive expiring.
    Golden state gets Giannis - enough said. Hill is a nice spark plug shooter off the bench and a great defender.
    I think Draymond would thrive as the fulcrum of Houston's defense. Bledsoe isn't anywhere near Westbrook offensively, but he's a better defender and shooter on a dramatically smaller contract. Lopez fits Houston's ethos perfectly, from threes to D.

    Why? Would getting a ton of picks and assets for a couple bad contracts be worse than letting Giannis leave for nothing in free agency? They're going to suck either way without Giannis.

    Giannis ends up on the Clippers being paired up with PG13 and Kawhi...new Big 3 in LA

    Rebuild in Milwaukee
    That is a terrible deal for the Bucks.

    I'm starting to think that Giannis should just play center most of the time. Yeah for sure you will still have a true big man on your roster; & maybe that big man even starts but as the game goes along, Giannis will get the bulk at the center spot.

    The same with AD.

    Just a question but if the Bucks decide not to trade Giannis what would keep them from trading for a guy like Jrue Holiday? I would think the Bucks would be open to trading any player outside of Giannis if it meant improving the team for 1 final run.

    #14 pick
    Romeo Langford
    Enes Kanter

    I think that should be enough salary to take back Giannis and Bledsoe’s contract.

    Kemba / Bledsoe
    Smart
    Hayward
    Tatum
    Giannis / Theis

    HOU type small ball with Giannis playing the 5. Still have Theis for when that doesn’t work. Basically just commit to a 7 man rotation.

    But I can see how Giannis might not fit well with either Joel or Simmons.
    Not as a headliner for Giannis. Embiid is a win now piece and was exposes in the playoffs and how much of an upgrade over Brooks is , is a congersation for another thread. What I do know is the difference aint Giannis. And I wouldn't want simmons unless you flip hip to someone else. I'd rather just trade giannis for a deal similar to Westy w/a treasure trove of picks.

    That's way too light unless you spin all of those players aside from brown in other trades

    San Antonio Spurs receive: Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Milwaukee Bucks receive: DeMar DeRozan, Derrick White, Luka Samanic and 2 first round picks lottery protected

    Giannis in San Antonio is almost too perfect to pass up...he gets to play for Pop and he gets a co star in Aldridge plus a young core to play alongside him

    Salary wise this trade works...plus in Milwaukee they can build the team around Middleton and DeMar is back in the Eastern Conference but playing for the Bucks

    ^That might be the worst trade proposal I’ve ever seen.

    As you continue to posts trades, if your trade includes "lottery protected" picks and doesn't include an insanely good young player, you can just delete it. No chance the bucks trade him for some lottery protected firsts.

    The warriors have the #2 pick this year and a top 3 protected then unprotected the next year. If the bucks are shooting for picks, that's where they're sending giannis. Maybe teams like boston can try to center a deal around a really good young player like jaylen brown, but some vets, maybe a wild card young guy and some protected picks isn't going to do it.

    Front office normally think in 2 manners...

    A total rebuild, or still be competitive.


    The Bucks seem like an organization that would want to still be competitive with an All Star level player. I fully disagree with your reason (even though I understand them). They would take & keep Simmons in a heart beat. He would be locked up contract wise as well.

    & the 76ers would only do it, if Giannis tells them he will re-sign.

    But lets see what happens if Giannis turns down that extension.
