Report: Khris Middleton & Greg Monroe for #16, #23 and "a player" being discussed
Things are getting pretty turnt up, you guys. According to Bucks beat reporter, Gery Woelfel, the Bucks and Celtics are discussing a trade involving Khris Middelton and Greg Monroe:
In return for Middleton and Monroe, the Bucks could possibly acquire two first-round picks from the Celtics in today’s draft: Nos. 16 and 23, along with another player. Interestingly, the Bucks have worked out a spate of players who are projected to go in the 16 to 23 range, including guard Denzel Valentine of Michigan State, guard Malachi Richardson of Syracuse, guard Dejounte Murray of Washington and power forward Brice Johnson, among others.
Interestingly enough, Woelfl does not indicate that the number 3 pick would be involved in the trade.
For those keeping track at home, Middelton & Monroe do combine to make roughly 32 million dollars a year. The Celtics could take on this salary and should still be able to afford a max free agent.
