The Bucks are interesting as they were close to acquiring Crowder recently in what would have been a three-way team Trade with Houston as the third entrant. Just because this deal has been put on hold doesn’t mean this or something similar can’t be done before the trade deadline in February. Milwaukee is already one of the favorites to win the title this year, and the addition of Crowder could push them past the Boston Celtics for Eastern Conference supremacy.

Adding Crowder to the Bucks’ second unit would be more of a playoff move, but getting him on the team as soon as possible will only benefit team chemistry. Some still believe that if Khris Middleton (pictured) had been healthy against the Celtics last postseason, the Bucks would have passed them and eventually found themselves in the NBA Finals against Golden State.

If Milwaukee found a way to bring in Crowder, they’d have another guy who can knock down big shots in record time, play hard on defense and still give maximum effort. Other than that, he can still contribute 10-12 points per game, and no competitor is refusing that. It would be like adding another Bobby Portis to the list, which would be scary.
