Pretty straight forward, reported by a Milwaukee sports reporter quoting Chris Sheridan that essentially this is Giannis's call.  He doesn't like playing with either player and is basically requesting that management move them, which is a perk of being a star player I guess.

They're both on the final years of their deals, Parker restricted and Bledsoe unrestricted.  Parker at about $4.3 million and Bledose at $15 million.

Another sign that we could see a whole lot of movement around the league this summer.

Oh you're right, my fault, sportrac was a little confusing with him.  He is restricted though.  So if the Bucks do wanna trade him, it'll have to be a sign and trade.

I think that would be smart. He's not a great fit with Giannis, he's about to get paid, and I think they could still get some value in a sign and trade with a team that really likes him.

Parker has played just over half of the Bucks' games since he was drafted. Hard to believe he'd have much value with his history.

Bucks have a lot of bad contracts. That's one place where Ainge has done a tremendous job. We haven't shelled out a ton of $$$ for role players, backups, or overrated players, something almost every other team in the league has done. I hope we don't go overboard in trying to bring back Smart.

Parker can still be a very good player, and Iíll be fine if they lose him for nothing.

As for Bledsoe, he proved his worth in the playoffs.

Parker is still someone who I believe can drop 18/7, and his game isn't predicated on athleticism. So he will certainly age well, although he has to put more effort on the defensive end.

But Bledsoe really? He averaged 15.2 PPG, 4.2 APG, and 4.0 RPG, with okay 44%.

But he had one of the worst displays of perimeter defense I have ever seen in a while..

Middleton, Parker (S&T) + 2018 Bucks First Rounder for Kawhi.

Everyone is happy, including us as we keep him away from PHI, but also I still think we beat MIL since we're deeper.

I don't think SAS would have any interest in that package.

I think you and GreenEnvy have the same opinion about Bledsoe.

I meant he proved his lack thereof and heís not worth his $15M salary (although itís in the last year of his contract, so maybe itíll come in useful to someone looking to make cap space next season). I thought he was garbage on and off the court and got thoroughly outplayed by TR3.

I just looked up Jabari Parker's stats and couldn't believe that he is 6'8" and 250 pounds. Maybe I need new glasses, but he doesn't seem like he is anywhere close to 250 pounds, not does he play like he is that big.

I hope Milwaukee fumbles this and Giannis gets disgruntled.  He's the one guy I'd love to see us ship some serious assets out for.

What's there to do in Milwaukee. Nothing there will help his shoe business!
