The Milwaukee Bucks promised reigning back-to-back MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo a reshaped roster to try to transform regular-season success into a championship push. In the span of hours as Monday night bled into Tuesday morning, the Bucks reached agreements on acquiring two significant players, New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday and Sacramento Kings forward Bogdan Bogdanovic, sources told ESPN.
The Bucks made a significant case to Antetokounmpo about why he should sign the five-year supermax extension that will soon be available to him.
After executing the Holiday trade late Monday, the Bucks and Kings reached agreement in principle on a sign-and-trade that’ll bring Bogdanovic and Justin James to the Bucks, sources said.
The Kings acquire versatile forward Donte DiVincenzo, D.J. Wilson and Ersan Ilyasova.
Both Holiday and Bogdanovic address Milwaukee’s need for shooting around Antetokounmpo, and Holiday is one of the best defenders in the league.
