The Bucks mean business

Holiday-Bogdanovic-Bucks

Giannis has said it himself, ' If they make the right decision, I’ll be there for many years.' Decisions were made, and by all objective metrics, they seem like the right ones. The Bucks promised Giannis a reshaped roster for a title push, and yesterday, they delivered.

The news broke down about Milwaukee executing the Holiday trade late Monday. As reported, the Bucks sent Eric Bledsoe, George Hill, three first-round picks, with a pair of pick swaps, ultimately amounting to something similar to what the Pelicans received from the Lakers last season in the deal that sent Anthony Davis to Los Angeles.

Holiday, who is widely recognized as one of the most underrated players in the association, is a clear upgrade at the point guard position for the Bucks. The versatility of a 30-year-old guard is just what the doctor ordered for Milwaukee, as he adds another dimension for both their offensive and defensive schemes.

Hours later, Milwaukee reached an agreement on a sign-and-trade with the Kings, sending Donte DiVincenzo, D.J. Wilson, and Ersan Ilyasova in exchange for Bogdan Bogdanović. Bogdan, who averaged 15.1 points while shooting 37.2 percent from three-point range, is another all-around weapon added to the Bucks' offensive machinery. His ability to spread the floor, create his own shot, but also create for others is a perfect fit next to a guy like Giannis.

The same goes for Jrue Holiday. Fit-wise, both of the guys are great additions to the Bucks roster. And while the draft picks going out will raise some eyebrows, this is obviously a win-now move for the Bucks, as they're putting all of their eggs into the 'keep Giannis' basket. If Antetokounmpo signs his supermax extension, it'll all be worth it. And judging by reports that the Bucks superstar signed off on both of the deals, him inking an extension worth over $230 million is only a matter of time.

Jon Horst delivered on his promise, and now it's time for Giannis to do the same. And when he does, he'll finally have a good enough group around him for a legacy enhancing postseason run.
