I know that it is a contraindication to mention the great absences before starting with the article as such, but I prefer to save trouble. This text exists to talk about transfers that have hardly been talked about and that I think change or varnish the opinion that one would have of the buying team. I say this because Patty Mills, Otto Porter Jr., and Larry Nance, also Jr., are not on my list. The explanation is simple, and it is that they are three movements that every self-respecting analyst has recognized as great successes under the radar, which makes them stop going unnoticed and have no place in the names that I present today. Without further ado, I begin.
There was no other way to start than by doing it with the champion, they have earned it. The Milwaukee Bucks have been in a fairly quiet free agency regarding what it might have been had they not renewed Giannis Antetokounmpo last December and Jrue Holiday in April. But both extensions also mean that Wisconsin have the fourth highest salary scale in the league and that the luxury taxes derived from it have seriously conditioned the decisions made in the management. The owner of the Bucks himself emphasized this by talking about the departure of PJ Tucker, whose continuity would have been an unworkable overexertion.
Having lost one of the most visible faces of the new NBA champion, Rodney Hood is the movement that balances the scales and invites us to think that perhaps Milwaukee has not generally worsened. Maybe next to the George Hill turn. True, the shooting guard is not a replacement for Tucker’s defensive bulldog role at all, but he does fill in some of the squad’s shortcomings.
