Milwaukee Bucks Going Hard After Victor Oladipo

The Milwaukee Bucks are trying to do what they can to acquire Victor Oladipo from the Indiana Pacers in a desperation move to improve their ball club enough for Giannis Antetokounmpo to stay. Adding the pure shooter would certainly be a start.

Zach Lowe of ESPN mentions the teams have actively held discussions and there's certainly potential one gets completed at the NBA Draft. It's likely Eric Bledsoe is the focal point of the deal along with future considerations heading into Indiana.

Oladipo only managed 19 games last season and recorded 14.5 points per game, which is almost 3 points lower than his career average. With a running mate like Giannis, the numbers could go up over 20 points per game. 

The two-time All-Star is set to earn $21 million during the 2020-21 season before becoming an unrestricted free agent.
