3 contenders that should pursue Chris Paul in free agency.
2. Milwaukee Bucks
In previous seasons, the Milwaukee Bucks had reported interest in trading for Paul. However, with him now as a free agent, there are few reasons for Milwaukee to not try signing him. Not only would he fit incredibly well alongside Jrue Holiday in the backcourt, but the fit he’d have with both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton seems like a match made in heaven.
Not only would Paul bring some elite levels of playmaking to a team with two already solid passers with Antetokounmpo and Holiday, but Paul would also bring some much-needed shot creation.
Aside from Middleton and at times, Holiday, the Bucks don’t really have a true shot creator. Paul may not be what he used to be, but he still is one of the deadlier mid-range threats in the NBA and has consistently been an average or better three-point shooter.
Paul, on a one-year deal with the Bucks, would be some very entertaining basketball. He’s not what he once was, but Milwaukee needs anything they can get considering their lack of cap flexibility.
Who knows if Paul wishes to go all the way to Milwaukee. However, if he does, the Bucks need to do all they can to try and bring the future Hall of Famer in. Adding Paul to this team with a new head coach in Adrian Griffin very well could bring the Bucks their second championship ring in three seasons.
