Bucks could be looking to trade Eric Bledsoe, Jabari Parker
The Milwaukee Bucks could be looking to package two of their star players in recently-acquired point guard Eric Bledsoe and injury-plagued forward Jabari Parker, according to fantasy guru Chris Sheridan of GetMoreSports.
“I expect the Bucks to move Eric Bledsoe and Jabari Parker, because Giannis Antetokounmpo does not enjoy playing alongside those two.”
The Bucks could try and make the move in the following days, before the start or during the NBA Draft, but it remains a tall ask for this team, given that the two represent a large part of their rotation.
This could be a potential package for the San Antonio Spurs if they choose to trade Kawhi Leonard, as Sheridan has given “zero chance” that the organization will trade their star forward to another Western Conference team, given a decade-long rule.
Bledsoe has proven to be an asset for the team since being traded by the Phoenix Suns, following an early-season fiasco, while Parker has dealt with two ACL surgeries since becoming a pro, which is bound to raise several red flags within the organization.
The team already has pinned Khris Middleton as Antetokounmpo’s partner in crime, as he was the lone player accompanying The Greek Freak in a breakfast meeting with now head coach Mike Budenholzer.
Next to those two, everyone in the team could be potentially expendable, but it remains to be seen if Milwaukee chooses to act on this quickly or take their chances during the NBA trade deadline midway through the 2018-19 season.
