Greivis Vasquez is open to joining other teams this summer.

The trade for Vasquez did not go well with the Bucks giving up a 2017 first-round pick and a 2015 second-round pick -- that pick turned out to be Norman Powell. Vasquez will likely be a backup on whatever team he joins next year.

Bucks coach Jason Kidd said that it's possible that Giannis Antetokounmpo could eventually average a triple-double over the course of a season.

"Is there a player that could do it? [Russell] Westbrook is probably one. Giannis is probably right there in that same conversation," Kidd said. "As he gets older and starts to dissect the game better, you can't rule him out." Antetokounmpo averaged 18.8 points, 8.6 boards, 7.2 assists, 1.9 blocks and 1.4 steals after the All-Star break, and it's scary to think about how good he can be considering he's just 21 years old. He has no ceiling.

Miles Plumlee said he would like to re-sign with the Bucks this summer.

"I'm just really thankful for the opportunity to get out there and play," Plumlee said. "I love the game. I love the team here. I think we're building something really special and I hope to continue to be a part of it." He will be a restricted free agent, but the Bucks will likely prioritize bringing in some 3-point shooters first because both Greg Monroe and John Henson are signed to long-term contracts. Plumlee averaged 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in 61 appearances for the Bucks.

Khris Middleton admitted that he wasn't in great shape at the beginning of the season.

"I definitely wasn't where I needed to be," Middleton said. "That's something I'll work on this summer is being ready from Day 1." Middleton didn't want to get hurt before signing his massive contract, but he said he plans on getting ready for the next campaign much sooner this time. Middleton returned top-30 value in standard 9-cat leagues this season with averages of 18.2 points, 4.2 assists, 3.8 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 44.4 percent shooting from the field and 88.8 percent from the line, so he is going to be a hot commodity in fantasy drafts next season.

Jabari Parker said that he will work on his 3-point shot this summer even though he loves taking midrange shots.

"Personally I'm not really a big fan of the three-ball," Parker said. "I love the midrange, I think it's more efficient for me, especially for me working back. But who knows? If I'm open I'm going to take it." Parker added that he wants to improve his fundamentals, post play, free-throw shooting and understanding of the team's schemes this summer. He looked fantastic after the All-Star break with averages of 18.9 points, 6.1 boards, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals on 49.8 percent shooting, so he's going to likely cost you a mid-round pick next season.

Bucks general manager John Hammond wants Michael Carter-Williams to work on his shot this summer.

"Next season; it needs to start happening next season," Hammond said of MCW establishing a consistent shot. "I think a lot of it is having this off-season to work on it." Hammond added that MCW is a "really good fit for this team" on the defensive end, and the PG still believes that he will have a significant role next season even though Giannis Antetokounmpo will be running the offense. "I think he is definitely going to control the ball a lot more, but he's not going to guard a point guard," MCW said. "I'll be guarding the point guard."
Apr 17 - 10:30 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to focus on improving his 3-point shot this summer.

"They're not going to guard me yet out there," Antetokounmpo said. "Even if I start knocking them down, they're still not going to guard me out there. So I've got time and space. Try to set my feet and knock it down." He shot 25.7 percent from deep during the 2015-16 season, but he progressed down the stretch and hit 45.5 percent in April. That's obviously not a realistic expectation for next season, but Antetokounmpo should continue to improve from deep and is shaping up to be a first-round target in standard leagues for the foreseeable future.
Apr 17 - 10:26 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 19 points with nine rebounds, five assists, one block and one 3-pointer during a 97-92 loss to the Pacers on Wednesday.

Get ready for a lot of "Giannis is working on his 3-pointers" and "Giannis is working on his ball-handling" updates this summer. He'll likely be starting at point guard after the experiment went swimmingly in the past month. Antetokounmpo is shaping up to be a first-round target in standard leagues next season.
Apr 14 - 12:22 AM

Greg Monroe scored seven points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 13 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He did not play in the second half with the Bucks basically tanking. Monroe could be on the trade block this season with the Bucks possibly changing up their roster. Monroe was pretty effective for fantasy owners with fourth-round value in his 79 games. He's in a good spot for fantasy value in Milwaukee even though the young guns will get more shots.
Apr 14 - 12:14 AM

Khris Middleton did not score in eight minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He only played eight minutes because the Bucks likely wanted to tank a bit here. They did successfully, but they'll only be in the 8-10 spot with most of the lottery teams losing as well. Middleton obviously won't be losing playing time next year after finishing the season with third-round value in standard leagues. The Bucks stole him from the Pistons.
Apr 13 - 11:49 PM

Rashad Vaughn, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe will start on Wednesday.

This could be a good day to tank because the Bucks have the same record as the Nuggets and Kings. It doesn't look like they will, so start your Bucks like you normally would.
Apr 13 - 7:18 PM

Jerryd Bayless (knee) is out for Wednesday night against the Pacers.

It'll be Rashad Vaughn getting another start, but Tyler Ennis should get some extra run tonight. Bayless is an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Apr 13 - 6:33 PM

Jason Kidd's future as the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks is in jeopardy, according to sources of Gery Woelfel.

According to Woelfel's sources, some in Milwaukee's ownership group view Kidd as arrogant, and they were not pleased when he took off a portion of the season to undergo hip surgery, a procedure they believe could have waited until the offseason. They've also began to question Kidd's coaching acumen and his constant fiddling with the rotations, and obviously the Brandon Knight trade, which was a Kidd inspired deal, has not gone over very well. Bucks' GM John Hammond is also on the chopping block, and it sounds like Milwaukee may look to make some major changes this offseason.
Apr 12 - 5:13 PM

John Henson scored five points in 15 minutes during a 107-98 loss to the Magic on Monday with three rebounds and two turnovers.

He moved back to a reserve role with all of his minutes coming at power forward again. Henson exploded with the extra playing time on Sunday with an 18-point, 10-board game against the 76ers. Unless the Bucks rest Greg Monroe again, Henson won't be a great option on Wednesday.
Apr 11 - 9:32 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo made 5-of-7 from the field for 11 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal, three blocks, five turnovers and one 3-pointer.

It was one of his worst offensive games and the first time he's had fewer than 12 shot from the field this month. Antetokounmpo continues to bring the ball up a lot for the Bucks with his 8.4 dimes per game in his previous games this month. He should be good to go for Wednesday in the home finale this season.
