NBA Rumors: Milwaukee Bucks Turn Down New York Knicks Trade Offer

The buzz began this past week that the Milwaukee Bucks have put pesky (some have labeled him "dirty") guard Grayson Allen on the trade market. We've also known for some time that the New York Knicks are looking to trade their forgotten man, Cam Reddish, and that they have interest in Allen

Put it all together, and you get an offer of Cam Reddish for Grayson Allen. 

But despite a recent report, according to word coming down this weekend from Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the Bucks have no interest in the Knicks' offer of Reddish for Allen.

Milwaukee has resisted including Allen in conversations surrounding Reddish thus far.

Instead, the Bucks have kicked around the idea of a 2023 second-round pick and salary fillers in trade talks with the Knicks for Reddish, league sources told HoopsHype.

Potential salary fillers could include George Hill and Serge Ibaka. 

The Bucks have been looking for a new home for Ibaka, who has been away from the team for "personal reasons" for some time now, and is waiting to be relocated as he had been dropped from the team's rotation.

Allen, on the other hand, has had plenty of suitors since the Bucks have apparently made him available, so if the Knicks don't want to make a deal, Milwaukee can always look elsewhere. Besides, Jae Crowder seems to be their first choice of a target, and as noted by Scotto, "Allen has come up in several three-team trade concepts with Suns forward Jae Crowder."

Lots of machinations around these players, all of whom seem destined to be moved by the deadline. To where, remains the question.
