The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a one-year deal with former No. 8 pick Nik Stauskas, his agent, Mark Bartelstein of @PrioritySports tells ESPN.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) November 26, 2020 However, as Matt lays out below, Stauskas is merely a camp invite due to the Bucks increasingly stringent cap...

Report: Pat Connaughton Returns to Milwaukee Bucks on 2-Year Deal

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The second year has a player option It was only a matter of time before we got some real free agency news related to the Milwaukee Bucks, and it came in the form of Pat Connaughton continuing to build his real estate empire in Milwaukee with a 2-year deal worth $8.3 million, per Woj. Player option on the second year, his agents tell ESPN. https://t.co/4sWp1un9Xb— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 21, 2020 The player option seems to follow a trend the Bucks have started the past two years, with both Wes Matthews and Robin Lopez...

Report: Milwaukee Bucks Waive Ersan Ilyasova

Photo by Ashley Landis - Pool/ Yikes all the way around This is an article ostensibly about a report from Shams Charania that the Milwaukee Bucks are waiving Ersan Ilyasova and his $7M contract that was supposed to become guaranteed tomorrow. This article is not actually about Ersan Ilyasova and this $7M contract that was supposed to become guaranteed tomorrow. Milwaukee is waiving forward Ersan Ilyasova, sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) November 19, 2020 This is an article about how, because the Bucks are waiving Ersan...

Report: Bogdan Bogdanovic Trade Falls Through; Plans to Enter Restricted Free Agency

Report: Bogdan Bogdanovic Trade Falls Through; Plans to Enter Restricted Free Agency

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports Well this is some egg on the face... After a report earlier tonight that the Bucks Bogdan Bogdanovic sign-and-trade was on the precipice of falling through, it appears that Adrian Wojnarowski has indeed confirmed that Bogdan will enter free agency or pursue other sign-and-trades. The Kings and Milwaukee Bucks had hoped to bring Bogdanovic the framework of a sign-and-trade to negotiate a Bodanovic contract with Milwaukee on Friday, but he will move into the marketplace to find an offer sheet or seek out other sign-and-trade scenarios,...

NBA Draft 2020: Draft Night Open Thread

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ It’s draft night, and we’ll be waiting until round two for the Bucks to make a selection The NBA Draft is one of my favorite nights of the year, even when the Milwaukee Bucks are absent from it. Of course it’s more fun when the Jon Horst and company have some stake in the game, but I’ll have to get used to first rounds with this franchise for the better part of this entire decade. Regardless, it’s a new night, and by tomorrow there will be 60 new players drafted along with some undrafted players likely linked to teams around the NBA....

Brew Hoop Community Draft Board: Aleksej Pokusevski Takes Final Spot at 24

Photo by Panagiotis Moschandreou/Euroleague Basketball via This whole exercise felt a lot more meaningful yesterday So...this is awkward. After counting up from #11 and on for this annual Community Draft Board, we finally reached the Milwaukee Bucks selection at #24 and...now they don’t have it. Thanks to the Jrue Holiday trade, we don’t have to care about this pick, or a whole bunch of first round draft picks for Milwaukee stretching to the latter half of this decade. But gosh darnit, you all put in a lot of time to this thing, so we’re going to close it out now...

Roundtable: Bucks Trade for Jrue Holiday and Bogdan Bogdanovic

Welcome back to another year of the Brew Hoop Round Table, where we ask that everybody use coasters and please don’t feed the aging pugs from the table, thanks. Today, we’re discussing the absolute blockbuster trades that netted Milwaukee Jrue Holiday and Bogdan Bogdanovic. Okay, what was your first reaction to the Jrue Holiday trade??

Photo by Garrett Ellwood/NBAE via This is it folks. All in. Whether that phrase conjures up Luke pledging his love to Lorelai in Gilmore Girls or Daniel Craig pushing all his chips in during Casino Royale, for Milwaukee Bucks fans, it will forever be tied to the twilight hours of November 16, 2020. As that magical night turned to early morning, Adrian Wojnarowski and Shams Charania broke the news that Jon Horst wasn’t content with fringe moves. Instead, he’d be jettisoning any semblance of a youthful future, giving up Eric Bledsoe, George Hill, three first round selections and two...

The Brew Hoop Podcast Episode 73: How Should the Bucks Approach the 2020 NBA Draft?

Photo by Gary Dineen/NBAE via We may have no idea who Milwaukee will pick, but we can try to speculate on how they’ll approach the selection... The 2020 NBA Draft is rapidly approaching, even as the NBA also juggles a jumble of transactions with free agency set to begin this Friday. It’s chaos right now, which perfectly encapsulates draft season. In today’s episode, Adam, Riley and Kyle put on their mock draft hats and pretend they know anything about a few players they’ve watched youtube highlights from. After running through the list of rumors about players the Milwaukee...

2020 NBA Draft - Brew Hoop Community Draft Board: Desmond Bane Lands at 23

Photo by Ed Zurga/ The versatile guard out of TCU brings plenty of NBA-ready skills Desmond Bane, the senior shooting guard out of TCU, feels more in line with the type of plug-and-play position player who could fill the outgoing role of folks like Sterling Brown or Pat Connaughton (assuming they’re gone) for the Milwaukee Bucks. He’s an older player, which isn’t inherently a bad thing this far in the draft, but one with a savvy repertoire of skills that would fit almost any NBA team’s need for 3-and-D-ness. At 6’5” with 6’6” wingspan, he’s not a George Hill-type with...

2020 NBA Draft - Brew Hoop Community Draft Board: Jalen Smith & Josh Green Tie at 21/22

Photo by Matt Marriott/NCAA Photos via The big man and versatile wing tie for our next spot When we get to this point of the board, it’s pretty tough to find prospects who might be head and shoulders above one another. There may be a height difference between Jalen Smith, the sophomore power forward from Maryland, and Josh Green, the freshman guard from Arizona, but there was no separating them in the latest Brew Hoop Community Draft Board poll, where they tied with 24% of the vote each. However, they bring vastly different skills to the table. Let’s start with Smith, who boasts...

SB Nation Blogger Mock Draft: The Milwaukee Bucks Select Theo Maledon 24th

Photo by Ivan Korzhenevskiy/Euroleague Basketball via The young guard from France will shore up backcourt needs and offer upside for the future With the 24th selection in the SB Nation Blogger Mock Draft, Brew Hoop selects Theo Maledon, on behalf of the Milwaukee Bucks. Yes, it’s a backcourt player, and hopefully one whose upside will be realized within Bud’s development system. Maledon doesn’t leap off the screen athletically, but he does boast a nearly 6’9” wingspan that would add more length to the Bucks’ backcourt. While he may not be a one-on-one dynamo, the Bucks...

Brew Hoop Community Draft Board: Theo Maledon Rolls to 19

Photo by Angel Martinez/Euroleague Basketball via The French guard offers a mix of passing and finishing with a questionable shot Theo Maledon is a young combo guard out of France, a 6’4” guard with a nearly 6’9” wingspan. He’s a little across the map in terms of where he is on draft boards, with him routinely ranked in the teens across most draftniks except for The Ringer, where he’s 31st. He’s apparently mentored by Tony Parker, which, I mean, we all know how well it went for Thon Maker when he was mentored by Kevin Garnett...so I’ll happily read nothing into that...
