Can Brandon Jennings bring FA
Are the Bucks looking at bringing in some big name free agents? They have a decent team surrounded by having a decent center, a good shooting guard, and well Brandon Jennings. Could they make a splash in free agency?
they need to make the playoffs first :P
you know i actually forgot that they do have money..they shoul dbe able to bring in a pretty good one..not the best of the best but possible a very good player or allstar that wants to get paid
If Milwalkee wants to have a chance to get players in 2010, they need to start by trying to trade Michael Redd and his contract. They're playing excellent basketall without him so it woudn't hurt them if they did trade him so that they can use the cap space they have if they trade him to become players in 2010.
could be but why trade him if they will still have enough money to get a good free agent?..they should keep him get a free agent while getting a good draft pick and see what they can do wit that...if it doesnt work trade redd you know?
I honestly don't think so.
It's more a location problem. I do not see people "going" to Milwaukee unless drafted and even then some players tell the Bucks not to draft them ( Joakim Noah in 2007)
I think you must move Redd's Contract and build around Jennings. I would want the lineup to be
Jennings-Alexander-Moute-Warrick-Bogut with Meeks off the bench.
That could potentially be a playoff team in a year.
If they can add another big man or multiple position player....they can be better quicker
Ed Davis? Greg Monroe? Devin Ebanks?
when it comes too money any place can become a home for good nba players..i think jefferson signed or will sign a extension out in minny..the thing is if you have the money and youre winning then you will be ok. you look at teams in big cities who are pretty bad and dont get top not free agents every year but you see some places that arent the best party places get pretty good players..also have to factor in that players only have to stay where they are during the seaon and half of those games they are on the road. during the summer time they can go where ever they want
Could they make a splash in free agency?
Realistically, HELL NO .P
also heres the list of free agents out there this summer
these are the guys who can opt out
Amare Stoudamire )
LeBron James (
others who could opt out
Zydrunas Ilgauskas (option to opt-out after 09/10 season)
Anderson Varejao (option to opt-out after 09/10 season)
Jamal Crawford (option to opt-out after 09/10 season)
Eddy Curry (option to opt-out after 09/10 season)
T.J. Ford (player option - owed $8.5 million in 10/11)
then you have rudy gay tyrus thomas ronni brewer
the bucks dont have to get a big time free aganet since they are rebuilding and young and headed int he right direction and not near a championship caliber team..and alo add that they will add a pretty good rookie next year..they are in a very good position
stephen jackson isnt a free agent next year
added him on accident..might be a couple who arent since this list was made before the summer i think
Rip isn't a free agent after this year.. He signed that massive 3 year extension after the A.I. trade last year. His contracts ends after the 2012-2013 season.
thats why i said some of the names will be excluded because the list was made a minute ago
Trade Redd to Cleveland for Big Z. The deal would help both teams if Redd isn't out that long.
how is that a good trade for the bucks?..they are playing well and bogut is there center of the future...why even trade redd at all right now?..im tryna find the logic and cant come up with anything..if he comes back and they play worst or he plays horrible then it makes sense but right now it doesnt anyway you look at it
He should be able to, if the player they want to attract cares about trying bring a winning attitude to the team over the actual living area, get a very good player. Jennings has the ability to take over games, and with a real 2nd option (Bogut is a 3rd option to me), they can be a competitive, playoff-caliber team.
