The Brew Hoop Podcast Episode 72: The Fake Tradestravaganza

Breaking down the entire trade proposal bracket and how the Bucks could realistically improve this offseason

NBA: Playoffs-Miami Heat at Milwaukee Bucks Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In the latest episode, Brew Hoop’s co-managing editor, caplord and trade machine maestro, Mitchell Maurer, joins Kyle, Riley and Adam to talk about how the Milwaukee Bucks could realistically improve this offseason. Namely, through trades.

After setting the table for Milwaukee’s cap situation, Mitchell walks through his trade proposal bracket and the group discusses the merits of the many potential trades the Bucks could make. If you’ve been following the trade proposal bracket here on Brew Hoop, you know it’s nearing its completion. A couple of the topics we hit from the exercise include:

  • Surprise upsets
  • Favorites that got eliminated early
  • Why lower-seeded proposals seemed to outperform their ranking
  • The near universal inclusion of Eric Bledsoe
  • What types of trades would most benefit the franchise

Thanks to everyone who made the trade proposal bracket such a massive success and make sure to keep voting. We appreciate all the listeners and look forward to guiding you through this truncated offseason.
