The Knicks are reportedly interested in trading for Greg Monroe.

The Bucks has made it painfully clear that Monroe is available, and the Knicks seem like a realistic landing spot given that they were one of his primary suitors when he was a free agent. Sam Amico reports that the Knicks would likely need to get a third team involved in order to strike a deal, and that if a trade were to go down, it likely wouldn't happen until December.

Greg Monroe is available via trade, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Stein reports that Monroe is available now that the Bucks have re-signed Miles Plumlee, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see the big man on the move. Monroe's fantasy upside is a tad limited, but a change in scenery would likely provide a nice boost to his fantasy value.

The Bucks and Miles Plumlee have reportedly agreed to a four-year, $52 million deal.

Plumlee had multiple suitors but the Bucks were able to retain him without matching an offer sheet, offering an average annual salary of $13 million. He'd be an intriguing fantasy option if Greg Monroe is traded, with per-36-minute averages of 11.2 points, 10.6 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.8 blocks, but for now he's only worth a look in deep formats.

Thon Maker said he always plays "hard" and "to win at all times."

"I just came here and played hard and played to win at all times. In terms of me playing my game, that will take time. But right now, they are trying to see how long I can play and play hard, just to see if I can stay up to speed." Maker showed flashes of his upside during summer league with averages of 14.2 points, 9.6 rebounds and 1.0 block per game, but he also only managed to shoot 37.7 percent from the field. Maker doesn't currently have a clear path to minutes in Milwaukee, so he'll be a risky guy to draft in standard leagues.

Thon Maker played a bumpy game on Wednesday, shooting 6-of-17 to finish with 17 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds and two steals.

Maker started the game with a smooth, in-rhythm 3-point make, but it remains to be seen whether he can consistently hit from the perimeter. He also gambled far too often defensively, which has become a trend for him in Summer League. There's a long way to go before opening night, however, and Maker looks ready to crack the Bucks' rotation as a rookie.

Malcolm Brogdon grabbed six rebounds and handed out five assists on Wednesday, but he shot just 2-of-15 from the field (0-of-4 from deep) for five points in 33 minutes.

Brogdon once again played point guard tonight as the Bucks continue to experiment with his skill-set. He's outplaying Rashad Vaughn (10 points, five boards) and has been versatile in Summer League with averages of 10.8 points, 0.5 triples, 5.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists. The biggest cause for concern is that his flat-arc shot has come up short a lot in Vegas, but he's a talented enough shooter to adjust to the NBA 3-point line.

Malcolm Brogdon scored 15 points with two rebounds, five assists, one 3-pointer and no turnovers in 32 minutes on Monday.

Another solid showing from Brogdon. He's looking like one of the most NBA-ready players picked in the second round, and he may have already leapfrogged Rashad Vaughn. Brogdon also continues to play a lot of point guard for the Bucks in Las Vegas. His upside isn't the greatest, but he might be getting minutes out of the gate.
Jul 11 - 6:14 PM

Thon Maker picked up 10 fouls in Monday's game against the Grizzlies, finishing with 10 points, six rebounds, one steal, one block, one 3-pointer and four turnovers.

It's not easy to foul out of a Summer League game, but Maker was trying to do a little too much on the defensive end. He was staying home early in the game, but came a bit unglued with four fouls in the first four minutes of the season half. Still, there's a lot to like from this raw forward, especially as a shot-blocker and rebounder. He's on the radar as a late-round flier in fantasy.

Michael Carter-Williams said that he's working on hitting the open jump shot as well as his post game.

It seems like MCW really wants to prove himself after previously voicing his desire to improve defensively, but we need to see a different Carter-Williams to believe in a new potential for the player. With the offense expected to flow through Giannis Antetokounmpo and Matthew Dellavedova a possibility to start—weird, we know—there isn't a whole lot to like about rostering Carter-Williams on your fantasy team.

Michael Carter-Williams said he wants to lead the Bucks next season, "starting on the defensive end."

"I want to step in and take charge, be vocal and keep our guys together," he said. "It's time to get back to the mind-set of defense first and worry about offense later." Carter-Williams projects as a backup now that Giannis Antetokounmpo is serving as the full-time starting PG, and the arrival of Matthew Dellavedova does his fantasy value no favors. With no 3-point range and poor free throw shooting, it's hard to like MCW's fantasy prospects in 2016-17.

Rashad Vaughn put on a show vs. the D-League Select team on Sunday, scoring a game-high 24 points on 10-of-18 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds and four assists.

Vaughn struggled in his first Vegas game, shooting just 4-of-16 from the field, so it was nice to see him bounce back with a stellar all-around effort. The Bucks don't have much depth at SG this season, opening the door for Vaughn to play a significant role, but he shot 30.5 percent as a rookie and is just a guy to monitor in standard leagues.
Jul 10 - 7:11 PM

Malcolm Brogdon scored 14 points on 7-of-14 shooting during Sunday's summer league loss to the D-League Select Team, adding four boards, four assists, one steal and one turnover in 30 minutes.

Brogdon displayed some excellent defense, and he didn't really make many mistakes while on the court. Brogdon spent four years at Virginia, so he's coming into the NBA with some added experience, and he could be a meaningful part of Milwaukee's rotation right away. Still, there's a ton of depth on the wings in Milwaukee and Jason Kidd is far from consistent with his rotations, so Brogdon's value will likely be confined to deeper league during his rookie season.

Thon Maker was all over the place during Sunday's summer league loss to the D-League Select Team, tallying 17 points, 17 rebounds, one 3-pointer, two blocks and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

Maker put his athleticism on full display with a pair of highlight-reel swats, and his hustle was impressive as he was regularly diving to the floor for loose balls. Maker went 7-of-15 from the field and 1-of-4 from deep, and while he did also rack up six personal fouls, his effort on both ends of the floor was impressive. If the Bucks are successful in trading away Greg Monroe this offseason, get ready for the Maker hype train to go into overdrive. Check out one of his swats in the link below.

Jason Kidd said that Mirza Teletovic is much more than just a 3-point shooter.

"He can shoot the three, we all know that," Kidd said. "But he can put the ball on the floor and get to the basket. He's a team guy. He's a little more athletic than you think, and we need that toughness. He's not afraid." Milwaukee attempted just 15.6 treys per game last season which was the lowest amount in the NBA, so Teletovic should have a nice role off the bench after averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 boards, 1.1 assists and 2.2 3-pointers with the Suns last season. If you need 3-pointers towards the end of your draft, Teletovic could be worth a look.
Jul 10 - 11:12 AM

Bucks coach Jason Kidd said that Jabari Parker has looked "amazing" in workouts this summer.

"He's having a great summer," Kidd said. "His workouts have been off the charts. Physically he looks amazing. His spirit is very high and his hard work is paying off." Kidd also said that Parker is working extremely hard on his 3-pointers and went on to say that he has the potential to be a superstar and one of the best players in the world. Parker will likely cost fantasy owners a mid-round pick after averaging 18.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals after the All-Star break and the promise of a 3-point shot is alluring.
