Milwaukee get Holiday + fillers
New Orleans get Brown, DiVincenzo, Maker, Snell, Ilyasova, WAS 2020 and 2021 SRPs, MIL 2023 FRP (top 5 protected)

The Bucks get another elite SG and move Brogdon to the bench to lead with Wilson the second unit. Holiday provides them safety in case they lose in summer one of their FAs.

The Pelicans get three prospects and future picks for Holiday, who doesn't fit to their new timeline. Snell's contract shouldn't be considered as dealbreaker here, since New Orleans were reported to like him as a player. The FRP is a long shot, but NOP will have earlier ton of picks dealing AD, Mirotic and Randle.

He is better defender passer and shooter than any guard on bucks roster.

@milpso, Holiday is due $25-$26 Mil a year, for the next 4 year. (Giannis only make $25 mil a year) ) So, Why would the Bucks give up 2 Young SG's 1 Vet SG, 1 Young PF/ C and a Vet PF/ C PLUS Picks for Another SG in Holiday? Unless, The filler (s) you talk about is A. Davis! Pels fan?

Comparing contracts in the NBA today is pretty stupid. Giannis is very underpaid because he is on his second contract (without Rose Rules) and he resigned before he became what he is today. When his contract comes up, he'll make 45-50 per year.

The Bucks would trade a bunch of semi-young semi-talented players for a borderline all star. Just like money, you can't compare "Give up 3 players for 1". You do it because elite talent wins in the NBA. Role players don't.

Fit is incredibly overrated and doesn't matter nearly as much as talent. Look at Phili. People say "The experiment isn't working" as they have the 5th best record in the league. Fit is wonky, but wins are still happening. (Also, a PG and 4 wings have won the last couple NBA championships)

Look at the Standings! Where is Milwaukee? And where are the Pelicans? I'm sorry and do apologize! I don't take a bunch of names, throw them into some kind of "Trade Machine" and see what pops out? I actually research Teams, Players, Fits, Need's, And Contracts! . I still believe the bucks would pass on Holiday. Maybe the Mavericks?

@torque Holiday's contract is good and will be looking even better in the years to come when one year older Jimmy Butler will be paid with 35 mil to do less - since you compare contracts. It also ends when he will be 31, so you have him for all his prime. Jrue is a better player than Brogdon and with that you take him without losing Brogdon.

It also doesn't hurt Milwaukee's money to bring back their FAs. Having Bledsoe, Holiday, Middleton, Giannis, Lopez and Brogdon (6th), Wilson (7th) you can afford losing some young assets.

@ Milpso, You're probably right! here's a thought, Give Giannis $45-50 Mil. Give Middleton $40 Mil, Bledsoe $30 Mil. Lopez $30 Mil. keep Holiday at $25-$26 Mil. Brogdan, $20 Mil. and Wilson $20 Mil. That should work right? That's a total of $216 Mil a year for 7 players! So, No need for any more right? (P. S. Just where is ALL this money coming from?, And just who will you get for the bench. Everyone wants to get paid!1.

@Bmiller, Giannis could have signed for more (A Max deal at the time) But told the Bucks he only wanted his current contract, So hopefully they could use the extra money to pay others to come to Milwaukee (Fact) And Yes, No doubt he will be making more later. Its apparent Giannis just is more about team than himself. look at teams that are now Stuck with players with max contracts that they are trying to dump onto other teams. I Hope A Davis gets the 5 year 240 Mil. he wants, Then watch tickets go for $500 each to watch him play. Bottom line, Players are getting too "me, me, me" and how much money can "I" make? I for one don't think Holiday is worth $100 Mil. for the next 4 years!
