When the NBA trade talks involving Eric Bledsoe started to gain steam, the Milwaukee Bucks were among the ones reportedly interested in him. However, the Bucks should be careful in negotiating a deal with the Phoenix Suns.

According to reports, the Phoenix Suns aim to include Tyson Chandler in a potential NBA trade centered on Eric Bledsoe. It means the team that will land the point guard is also likely to get the veteran center. The possible inclusion of Chandler is something the Milwaukee Bucks must think about and see if it is worth the risk.

Chandler could help the young Bucks with his experience and leadership if they acquire him in an NBA trade.

But there are cons in adding the 35-year-old big man, and Adam McGee of Behind the Bucks Pass explained them in his report. McGee wrote that Chandler is aging and is no longer the dominant center he once was. He mentioned Chandler's present contract as well which may trouble the Bucks' salary cap. The one-time NBA champion (with the Dallas Mavericks) is guaranteed $13 million this 2017-18 NBA season and $13.5 million next season.

Bucks bounce back

Setting aside the NBA trade talk concerning the Phoenix Suns' Eric Bledsoe, the Milwaukee Bucks are back on the winning track after outlasting the Atlanta Hawks on the road Sunday (October 29) night, 117-106. As usual, franchise star Giannis Antetokounmpo led the charge for the Bucks as he dropped 33 points, which came with 11 rebounds and five assists.

Khris Middleton also stood out for the Bucks with his 27 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, and two steals. Malcolm Brogdon, John Henson, and Rashad Vaughn scored in double figures too. Brogdon, the Rookie of the Year last season, contributed 16 points. Henson and Vaughn both came off the bench and added 12 points apiece.

Henson was a rebound away from a double-double.

Up next

The victory over the Atlanta Hawks improved the Milwaukee Bucks' record to 4-2. They are currently fifth in the Eastern Conference and have the same record as the Boston Celtics, Washington Wizards, and the Orlando Magic. The Bucks must focus on their upcoming game while trying to accomplish the NBA trade for Eric Bledsoe.

Up next for the Bucks is a home game taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder are parading a new lineup that features the Big Three of reigning league MVP Russell Westbrook, with All-Star forwards Carmelo Anthony and Paul George.
