Just today, the Bucks broke multiple stories, the first is that Durant convinced Harden to come to the Bucks last year and partner with himself, but sources said that just a year and a half later, Durant began to get tired of Harden's inconsistent input and let general manager Sean Marks meet Harden's desire to leave the team. In addition, Fox reporter Rice Blucher reported that Irving and James have long wanted to join forces again, Irving has been training in Los Angeles over the summer, waiting to be traded, but the Bucks do not intend to let the Lakers get what they want, and after the Lakers sent Tucker away for Beverley, James and Irving are waiting for the Bucks to fall apart internally.
The third news is that the Bucks' accompanying reporter said in a live interaction with fans that the Bucks do not intend to send away Joe Harris in a subsequent trade, but instead include Seth Curry, who performed well last season, in a gradable list. And basketball expert Peary of the American media "NBA Analysis Network" reported today that the Bucks are expected to reach a 2-for-1 deal with the Bucks. Peary said that the Bucks became a little lax after winning the championship in the 20-21 season and made very few moves to make up for it, which led them to lose to the Celtics last season. In the new season, they are looking to get back into contention with their entire roster intact. And they have been coveting the Bucks' outside sharpshooter Seth Curry.
The 31-year-old Seth Curry averaged 15.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game last season, making 2.5 3-pointers per game and shooting 48.7 percent from the field, including a whopping 42.2 percent from 3-point range. Last season, Seth Curry joined the Bucks, just encountered Durant missed due to injury, plus Irving part-time play, Seth Curry once played the role of the core of the offense, Nash even designed some offensive tactics for it to get a lot of shots, and small Curry's playing time once came to 32 minutes, and trading close to 18 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, not a bad performance, become the Bucks' firefighters.
And the Bucks in the playoffs with the Celtics last season, outside shooting has become a major weak link, especially in the snatch battle, the Bucks outside shooting only 4 of 33, just 12% shooting, while the Celtics hit 55 shots 22 close to 40% of 3-point shooting, the Bucks lack of Middleton is a major reason, while this also gives the Bucks to fill the warning of the outside. And Peary broke the news that the Bucks want to take Gray son Allen and a 2023 second-round pick in exchange for Seth Curry.
As we all know, Grayson Allen has gained recognition in the Bucks with his playful performance on the defensive end. Due to his bad foul on Caruso in the regular season stage, he was known as the Bucks' first bad man, and in the Bucks Allen's defense made up for the lack of defensive ability brought by Tucker's departure. And on the offensive end, Allen also has a notable contribution, averaging 11.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists, with a three-point shooting rate of nearly 41%, why should the offensive and defensive Allen be traded by the Bucks?
In last season's playoffs, Allen's 3-point shooting was inconsistent. He was able to shoot 5 of 7, 6 of 7 and 3 of 6 in 3 consecutive games in the series against the Bulls like a godsend, and would also shoot 1 of 7 and 0 of 6 in 2 consecutive games in the crucial battle against the Greens with an embarrassing hitting rate. Seth Curry compared to Allen, although there are shortcomings in the defense, but the small Curry is a player who really relies on 3-point shooting to see a lot of stability in long-range shooting, in the playoffs small Curry shot 52.2% 3-point shooting rate. And alphabet is a ball-holding attack box type of interior, his space requirements are extremely high, the presence of small Curry can give alphabet a comfortable offensive space.
For the Bucks, they have too many shooters, and all of them have much the same attributes. Both Mills and Johanna are leaky on the defensive end. And Allen's defense can improve the Bucks' defensive ability on the outside, and a championship contending team, less a vicious man as a spiritual leader on the court.
Therefore, this 2-for-1 deal is a win-win existence for both the Bucks and the Bucks. The two-for-one deal is a win-win for both the Bucks and the Nets. What do you think about this?
