They sure seem busy, don’t they?
The Milwaukee Bucks just announced a trade today whereby they get a center for a swingman to alleviate the “logjam” created at that position by the re-signing of Michael Redd.
Logjam?!? (I feel like Jim Mora talking to reporters…“Playoffs?!?!”)
Because of this trade, they now have 4 centers on the team (I’ll try to refrain from doing math on this blog, but that’s roughly 1/3 of the team) – ranging from the #1 overall pick to a 38 year old with a great work ethic.
Had they not traded a young, talented guy like Mason, they would have had a “logjam” of 3, maybe 4 players at his position.
To me it seems that no one over at the Bucks has strong confidence in any of their centers. Especially their #1 overall pick.
Reality: They traded Desmond before he demanded more money. Convince fans this is good because you are finally over-propagating a position that has been weak as of late - at the expense of a talented, young player who wanted to set roots in the community.
That and it sounds like they have no confidence in Bogut.
Can't wait to see how they spin this one.
