NBA trade rumors are stating that the Milwaukee Bucks are having second thoughts about putting everyone on the roster except for Giannis Antetokounmpo on the block. Well, they have decided that they wanted to keep some of the other players. However, it appears that Michael Carter-Williams, who was acquired just a season ago, is still available to other teams in the National Basketball Association, according to Hoops Rumors.
Since he is not a great shooter, it is hard for Michael Carter-Williams to find offensive schemes that really fit him. That appears to be the case with the Milwaukee Bucks, as the team might be more efficient with a guard that can stretch the floor so that their slashers and Greg Monroe can do their things in the lane. Carter-Williams is sometimes considered a liability on the floor because of that.
Jason Kidd knows better than anyone that Michael Carter-Williams does not fit his offensive scheme, so now would be a good time to see if there’s another coach in the NBA that can pull off that feat. Perhaps, there is a better offensive scheme out there somewhere for Carter-Williams. If so, then that team might be willing to send assets over to the Milwaukee Bucks before the NBA trade deadline on Thursday.
Interestingly enough, the Sacramento Kings might be a possible destination for Michael Carter-Williams. Rajon Rondo only signed a one year deal with them last summer and will become a free agent once the NBA season ends. Since he has reclaimed his spot as one of the top guards in the National Basketball Association, there should be a demand for Rondo in free agency, so the Kings might need a replacement like Carter-Williams.
The Brooklyn Nets don’t really have an offensive identity right now. Tony Brown is serving as the interim head coach. Odds are that Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and the new general manager that he hires will be bringing in someone new. Reports have surfaced that Prokhorov is looking for a big name coach. If that coach has a scheme that fits Michael Carter-Williams, then that might be an option since Brooklyn really needs an upgrade at the guard spots.
