Report: Bucks Acquire Grayson Allen for Sam Merrill, Future 2nds

The transaction wheel continues apace

NBA: Playoffs-Utah Jazz at Memphis Grizzlies Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

We wondered whether Milwaukee was going to manage to add a little more guard depth to their rotation and how’d they’d maneuver around the number of non-guaranteed guys on the roster. Well...

As I write it is unclear which years those future second rounds apply to (might make the draft night trade down sensible now).

Allen, who featured in 50 games for Memphis last year, averaged 10.6 points (on .418/.391/.868 splits), 3.2 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game. He’ll likely slot into the guard rotation off the bench and does indeed add some slightly proven depth.

The roster currently sits at 14 players, and with Merrill moved on to other pastures there is no need for Milwaukee to cut any of it’s currently non-guaranteed players to fit into roster rules.

So, there you have it folks. For all intents and purposes, it appears the main roster is set barring any further trades. If we see more details on this trade, we’ll update the post.

Onto the title defense!
