Rodions Kurucs

The Milwaukee Bucks may have made their only trade for this period. D.J. Augustin and D.J. Wilson were the two most likely to be traded Milwaukee Bucks all season and they were traded this week. Augustin was brought in to be the back-up point guard but is off to the worst start of his 13-season career. Wilson is still a young player but he has never shown enough to fully make his way into Mike Budenholzer’s rotation.

The trade brought in P.J. Tucker and Rodions Kurucs. Tucker was the target of many contenders so his spot on the team is safe. Kurucs is likely less secure and could be spun to another team for a backup point guard to replace Augustin. He has played just 91 total minutes so far this season and Milwaukee will be his third team if he ever takes the floor.

Kurucs has had off-the-court issues that almost led to his deportation and has not made much of an impact on the court. If the Bucks can turn him into any sort of rotation piece, they should be applauded. He will almost certainly not be doing that through his play for the Bucks so a trade is likely the only way.
