    Ditto. Also, am I the only one unaware that Caron Butler was signed with the Pistons?

    Surprised Illyasova was able to be had for only cap relief. Guess the Bucks have their eyes on someone in free agency.

    You can do trades if ur season is over until june 30. This trade had to be done now because of butlers option that has deadline until june30 .
    Ily was worth about a mid second round. Becoz hes incosistent and picks up freak injuries. But right now the new owners want to make a big move especially with the arena issue.


    Unfortunatelly stein came out and confirmed that is between Brook Lopez Tyson and Dj (lol ).
    Im a bucks fan and i dont want to say it but if the bucks sign Brolo the league should look into Kidd. A little before he left brooklyn he wanted to trade Brolo for sanders and ily. Supposedly then there was absolutely no connection between him and the new bucks owners. And now he wants to sign him in his team?

    [rQUOTEr]Sources say that the Bucks would likewise be willing to jump into the DeAndre Jordan sweepstakes if they thought they had a reasonable shot at prying him away from Hollywood, but the incumbent Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks are widely regarded as the early co-favorites for Jordan.

    DeAndre would be perfect for the Bucks, and if I were him, I'd at least look into it. They're young, deep, and extremely talented. He could anchor the best D in the league for years.....maybe even win a few DPOYs.

    Most importantly they are in the East! He automatically makes them a top 4-5 team in the conference

    Jordan is too dumb. If he wasn't getting max offers and Milwaukee was offering max money I could see them landing him. Brolo is definitely possible tho.

    It would be funny if while Dallas was trying to court DeAndre Jordan, if Tyson Chandler slipped out the back door and signed with the Bucks. Then DeAndre stays with the Clippers and Cuban is left holding his Parsons.

    Agree. He will play hard only when he feels like to.

    Turkoglu was a 3, Lewis was the stretch 4. Ersan has none of Turkoglu's offensive skills other than a good set shot. The passing, ballhandling, and ability to score on the PnR are not there. Ersan is more like Rashard than Hedo, barring the Turkish nationality. And if Drummond were anything close to what 2008 Dwight was they would have made the playoffs easily last year.

    And, Rashard, a former SF himself, had much more of a handle than Ersan. He could make plays for himself off the dribble. Ersan is an old school stretch 4. A tradition PF with a good shooting touch. He's not the new school Lebron/Draymond Green "playmaking 4".

    It would be ironic if the Bucks pursued Greg Monroe in FA. I could see Kidd being behind pursuing Chandler since he's played with him on two teams.

    I wonder what Cuban does since signing Deandre is a long shot. Does he sign Chandler to a 4yr/50M deal or let him walk like the last time.

    Butler is completely done. The only thing he has to offer is veteran locker room presence. Hope he joins the bulls and they lose dunleavy.

    Dunleavy would be a good fit here...
