    League sources say the Pacers have talked with the Bucks about a trade involving Oladipo, though at this point it seems unlikely. Oladipo could be acquirable for the right price if the Sixers wanted to bet on a return to his pre-injury form.

    With the clock ticking on how long Giannis Antetokounmpo may be with the team, the Bucks brass will be aggressive. It has a short offseason period to put the right pieces around the superstar.

    If Oladipo isn’t attainable, it’ll be interesting to see what direction the team goes moving forward. Milwaukee will likely be that the center of most potential trades this offseason as a result of the need to another step forward.
