The trade deadline is just a few days away. With every passing day, the trade talks between the players and teams are getting more and more intense. In the meantime, the Bucks are keeping a low profile regarding this trade rumor. However, who wouldn’t want a great point guard on their team?

The Bucks are currently 34-21 this season. Their record puts them in third place in the Eastern Conference. If they can trade Dennis to their team, it will surely increase their chances of winning this season as they will have an excellent guard depth.

Currently, the Bucks rank 18th in the NBA in assists per game. By acquiring Dennis, they could improve their position based on Dennis’ performance this season. He averages 14.3, 3.3 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game.

Dennis has been in the NBA for nine seasons. He has played for a number of NBA teams, including the Atlanta Hawks, Oklahoma City Thunder, and Los Angeles Lakers. Currently, he plays for the Celtics, but if the trade goes through, things could get interesting. 

During the 2017-18 season, watching him play for the Hawks was a treat. He was their best player. His average was 19.4 points per game during that season.

Recently in December, Milwaukee’s superstar Giannis said he wanted the team to compete for Dennis’ inclusion on the team. Giannis wanted Dennis in the off-season.
