The Milwaukee Bucks Offseason: Good Enough

The Milwaukee Bucks have often been dubbed the "less competitive version of the Atlanta Hawks."

That epithet could hold just as true this upcoming season. The Bucks have a shot at making the playoffs under .500 again at a seventh or eighth seed. It's not because the Bucks have done anything special. It's because so many teams have "built up," but in ways that may disrupt team chemistry. These moves have occurred because of key losses. There's really been no net gain for many teams. But, it's enough to make the bottom half of the playoff chase in the Eastern Conference exciting.

Speaking of key losses---Boston is sure to tank this year with little hope of making the playoffs. The Bucks have the Nets to thank for that, as Brooklyn cleared out the Celtics' deteriorating arsenal.

And with the Raptors, Wizards and Pistons vying for the final spots, does it really matter (that much) what the Bucks do this offseason?

Probably not. They've acquired Zaza Pachulia and O.J. Mayo, among others. There's a reason where we draw Hawks comparisons. It's just really essential that they sign Brandon Jennings, who wants $12 million a year. This is quite a bit for someone who is good, but not that good. However, Milwaukee must bite the bullet and pay that much. Hopefully he'll be okay with the current $11 million deal. Jeff Teague is a worthwhile grab as well. Recent reports indicate that we could see progress on these deals today.

If this can be done, the Milwaukee Bucks will be competitive enough, like usual.
