With the injury to Khris Middleton and the loss of Malcolm Brogdon in the summer, the Bucks are vulnerable in the backcourt. According to Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer, the team could look to fill that hole with Kings sharpshooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic.
“The best option is probably Sacramento’s Bogdan Bogdanovic,” Tjarks wrote. “Bogdanovic, a 27-year-old in his third season from Serbia, is an elite shooter (43.8 percent from 3 on 6.8 attempts per game) who can also run point (4.8 assists on 1.9 turnovers per game). According to NBA Advanced Stats, he’s currently averaging 7.6 drives per game, which would rank third on the Bucks’ roster behind Giannis and Eric Bledsoe. He has never really gotten the chance to show what he can do in Sacramento, where he has been stuck behind Buddy Hield and De’Aaron Fox. He could be a star in Milwaukee.”
Giving up Brogdon in the summer was a very controversial move at the time. In his three seasons with the Bucks, he was one of their most important two-way players and was looked to as a third-option in 2018-19.
Fast forward to today, and it’s clear that the decision to let him walk was a mistake. Trading for Bogdanovic is one way they could begin to make up for it…
