Says one of the executives polled who didn’t rank the Bucks in his top three, “Pulling the defense out to the three-point line at every other position opens the floor for Giannis. But, late in games, if you know he won’t pull up for a jumper, you can deny him the ball really hard out to halfcourt, and if he slices behind you, there is time for defense to recover. This makes it harder for him to get it. And if you force them to initiate their offense with Eric Bledsoe or Khris Middleton, you are set up to sag off Giannis.”
The Bucks feel Middleton can fill that role and should he opt out to hit free agency, a Bucks official told Yahoo Sports: “We’re gonna do everything we can to keep him.” Half of the league will hit free agency in July, and Middleton will have plenty of suitors if he so chooses. “I feel like over the years we’re building something special here, so I feel like there will be an opportunity for me to be here and win at the same time,” Middleton said. “If I feel like I have a chance to win somewhere else and do better things, I’ll look into that.”
