Why The Milwaukee Bucks Do The Deal 

By contrast, the Bucks are making a pure win-now move with this deal. 

They’ll miss Allen. At the same time, Pat Connoaughton brings a similar skillset to the table. If Crowder is still the player he was last season, they’ll make due. 

In fact, they ought to benefit. The last time we saw Crowder in action, he was one of the best 3-and-D players in the NBA. 

Meanwhile, the Bucks don’t need to be concerned with finding a diamond in the second round. They already have Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The same could be said for the Suns. Does this deal help them do that?
