Andrew Bynum to Milwaukee???

In a twitter chat tonight I asked Sam Amico from Fox Sports Ohio what the latest Bucks rumor floating around was and his answer was they have interest in Andrew Bynum if he doesn't demand max money... He later was asked what his bold off season prediction is and he again said Bynum to Milwaukee... If the price is right and his knee is healed I would love that signing... He's just 25years old... By signing Bynum the Bucks could move Sanders back to his natural position of PF... If they sign Bynum I wouldn't mind if they resigned Jennings... That would give the Bucks a core to build around of Jennings Sanders and Bynum, all of which are 25 or younger... Then draft a SG or SF and with the remaining cap space they could sign another near max player to fill out the starting lineup...

Milwaukee should probably

Milwaukee should probably focus more on the fact that BOTH guys in their starting backcourt may be leaving this summer iinstead of signing a injury-prone center.

And both guys in their

And both guys in their starting backcourt are flashy chuckers who have never been winners in this league.

"have never been winners"??????

It's kind of hard to say that when they have been on horrible teams. It's a team game, nobody ever won alone.

No risk, no reward

But I'm not sure Andrew Bynum is going to be worth his price tag. Remember, just a year ago, this guy basically went straight up for Dwight Howard in a trade. Somebody will pay this guy close to a max deal, if he can demonstrate that he's healthy. Milwaukee might be that team, but I'm certain that others will be involved as well. Dallas certainly will be involved to some degree, at least. Perhaps the Lakers make a move, open up space, and sign him?

However, Al Jefferson is a hotter commodity and will be everybody's first priority.

It's a team game and their guards aren't team players and that's why they are deemed chuckers Both players are more concerned with their personal stats then they are winning. That will get you a few contracts but no long term team success.

Ellis & Jennings

These guards haven't been coached in systems that allow them to have success. How many undersized guards are asked to carry franchises on their backs? Maybe a few historically and those guards are probably HOF's. It's a team game yes, but they've had little/no help.

Warriors

Don Nelson 09-10: Ellis, Curry, Biedrins, Maggette, Anthony Morrow, CJ Watson (26-56)
Nelson 08-09 : Capt'n Jack, J. Crawford, Maggette, Azibuke, Biedrins, Ellis (29-53)
Nelson 07-08: Baron Davis, Azibuke, Harrington, Barnes, Biedrins, Ellis (48-34)
Nelson 06-07: BD, Azibuke, Stehpen Jackson, Richardson, Harrington, Ellis (42-40)
Mike Montgomery 05-06: J.Rich, Derek Fisher, Troy Murphy, Mike Dunleavy, BD, Ellis (34-48)

Bucks
Scott Skiles 12-13: Ellis, Jennings, Sanders, A moute, Ersan, Dunleavy
Scott Skiles 11-12: Bogut, Delfino, Brockman, Jennings, Ellis, Gooden, Ersan (31-35)
Skiles 10-11: Bogut, Salmons, Maggette, Delfino, Gooden, Jennings, Ersan (35-47)
Skiles 09-10:Salmons, Bogut, Jennings, Redd, Defino, Ersan (46-36)

Monta - How much of a team player can you be on a guard heavy Don Nelson team where your primary goal is to score? I guess Ellis could have dished it to Biedrins more...

Brandon - Since day 1 they asked him to be the man. He has had to do too much on weak teams, but what were his options?

Your arguement will be very similar to the one their agents spew this summer. Neither player has demonstrated an ability to make their team or teammates better and for the money they expect/want to be paid it's essential that they do.

I'm w/ you

Brandon and Monta won't make their teammates better. They are not superstars, not even all-stars. *although I thought Ellis was a legitimate AS snub (09-10). Anyways I think the common perception of them is much worse than they actually are as players. They may not be worth max deals, but I would give either a multi-years in the ballpark of 6-8 mil if they filled a critical role for a club.

I think Monta would be best served on a defensive contender (ie. Indy, Memphis, Chicago) for his scoring punch used off the bench. I would give him starters minutes, but he could carry these teams when they hit their scoring lulls.

I can see Jennings being productive on a team that already has scorers and structure so that he isn't asked to be everything offensively. Maybe a Utah, Dallas, LAC (if CP3 leaves).

That's why I said if he's healthy he would be a great addition for the right price... The Bucks have $32mil in cap space so Ellis And Jennings can easily be replaced...

I don't understand why

I don't understand why they're going after a broken big guy. Didn't they just get rid of one? Sanders is pretty good when he's not in foul trouble and Henson was killing it toward the end of the year (he single handedly saved my fantasy team, no lie). They don't really need another guy that will be a distraction. I think a guy like Paul Millsap would help them immensely.
