Vote in the Brew Hoop Tuesday Tracker: NBA trade deadline edition

Tracking the larger sentiments of Bucks fans week by week

In just over 48 hours, the NBA trade deadline will occur, and the Bucks are working the phones pretty hard according to multiple writers. Though the market has been pretty sedate in recent days, we got a report yesterday that the Bucks might be engaged on a more significant deal involving Bobby Portis and one-time Buck killer Grant Williams. Yahoo’s Jake Fischer reports that they might be interested in the Wizards’ Delon Wright, who probably could be had for a single second-round pick—the Bucks have only two of those to trade—and matching salary (likely Pat Connaughton). HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto thinks thinks they would be a fit for Royce O’Neale, Dorian Finney-Smith, or Isaac Okoro.

These are among the most credible reports in recent days, and we even heard last week that they called Memphis to ask about Marcus Smart, who they were told wasn’t available. All this smoke leads me to believe that at some point in the next two days—perhaps even by the time you’re reading this—Milwaukee will make a deal in the hopes of improving their title odds. What kind of move should that be? For whom should it be? These are the questions we ask of you below...
