Per WOJ

I thought the Bucks backcourt was already solid with Brogdon and Middleton but I guess the Bucks disagree.

Well I think Middleton plays more of a SF role for them and Snell plays SG. I like the deal for the Bucks but let's see where they play Bledsoe. I'm assuming they will start him and Snell will go to the bench?

It's an interesting swap. Going center-less looks like their strategy, and who knows - maybe it'll help them. Not a roster lacking for length or speed after the trade. I'm not wild initially. They didn't seem to address what I perceive as a primary team weakness, the tendency of four players to be standing around on offense without a sharpshooter among them while Giannis figures out what to try next with the ball.

Not sure how their offense has been running with monroe but figure offensively this will give them some help.

But, I'm assuming Bledsoe will allow them to get another go to scorer and alleviate the offensive load away from Giannis. He's also a solid defender.

Hmm.. They don't even have J. Parker right now either. They can make some noise this year.
