The Milwaukee Bucks have "supposedly" made star guard Brandon Jennings and emerging forward Ersan Ilyasova available in trades, Fox Sports' Sam Amico reported.
"Milwaukee may be the least-discussed team when it comes to the
deadline (and actual basketball, for that matter)," Amico wrote. "But Bucks GM John
Hammond is said to be strategically sitting...
No not all of Milwaukee, just the Bucks.
It’s really beyond white flag waving time and hope for next year.
I liked this team quite a bit earlier in the year. They played hard and were unselfish. And then mediocrity and thugdom kicked in by Monta Ellis and Branchise. It’s not their fault. Really. It’s all they know…. and they don’t know winning...

FRANCIS, Wis. -- The only games in sports that are truly "must-wins" are when a team faces elimination or the end of a season with a loss.The Milwaukee Bucks will not be eliminated from the playoff race if they lose to Philadelphia on Wednesday and their season won't be over.
