The Bucks are the worst team in the NBA, but that also means they top our reverse standings, with a 25% shot at the No. 1 overall pick if they finish the season in that position. Here’s more on a team with plenty of reason to sell:
- The Pelicans are open to moving Austin Rivers, and the Bucks have interest, tweets Gery Woelfel of The Journal Times. New Orleans has shopped Rivers to multiple teams, according to Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insider (Twitter link).
- The Bucks are dangling John Henson and could package him with a veteran, perhaps O.J. Mayo, Woelfel writes. The Warriors have interest in Henson, as we passed along earlier today. We covered more from Woelfel’s piece last night.
- There’s been talk that Milwaukee would be reluctant to let go of Caron Butler, given the Wisconsin native’s sentimental value, but that doesn’t appear to be the case, according to Woelfel. The Journal Times scribe tweets that the team will either trade him or agree to a buyout if he doesn’t fit the team’s plans.
