While the Suns burn into ashes, the Bucks remain stuck in the muck

As we enter the month of February, the 2016 trade deadline isn’t that far away — barely more than two weeks. As teams prepare to shake up their rosters — either with an eye toward the future or in an...

Milwaukee Bucks too quick to judge Michael Carter-Williams?

Michael Carter-Williams is a polarizing player. Ever since arriving at the trade deadline last year, Carter-Williams has changed the dynamic of the Milwaukee Bucks. Carter-Williams is by no means a decent shooter opposed to the sharpshooting Brandon Knight who was traded for him, but what Carter-Williams lacks in shooting he may be able to compensate for in a lineup that accommodates...

Bucks haven’t put Greg Monroe on trade block

One of the more popular theories ahead of the February 18 NBA trade deadline suggests the Milwaukee Bucks will place Greg Monroe on the block. Monroe isn’t there—yet. Monroe, 25, looks like an obvious trade target for many reasons, though the Bucks sitting at 18-25 and 13th in the Eastern Conference tends to lead the way.
