Taking a closer look at the best and worst moves made by the Milwaukee Bucks this offseason. 

Two years ago at this time, the Milwaukee Bucks were preparing for their NBA title defense. After winning their first championship, the Bucks were looking like a team that could emerge as the next dominating force in league history. However, the Bucks have had back-to-back disappointing showing in the playoffs. Now, the team is looking to get back on track in an attempt to sell Giannis Antetokounmpo on the future.

With just two guaranteed years remaining on his contract, the Bucks are on the clock. If they can’t bounce back in a huge way this season, it’s only going to raise more questions about the franchise’s future.

The Milwaukee Bucks’ future is very much up in the air

After this season, the Bucks will have to begin answering questions about their future. Jrue Holiday can opt out of his contract after this season and then Brook Lopez, Khris Middleton, and Giannis have the potential to be free agents after the 2024-25 season.

To say that the Bucks are heading into the season with pressure on their shoulders would be the understatement of the decade. In what will hopefully be a successful season for Milwaukee, let’s look back at a few of the best and worst moves they made this summer.
