It’s no secret that Indiana Pacers star Victor Oladipo is in trade talks around the league.
“League sources say the Pacers have talked with the Bucks about a trade involving Oladipo, though at this point it seems unlikely,” O’Connor wrote.
Oladipo, 28, has been linked to several teams. He will be a free agent after the 2020-21 NBA season.
The former All-Star returned from a ruptured quadriceps tendon injury in January. However, he didn’t look like the explosive Oladipo of the past.
During the 2019-20 regular season, Oladipo averaged 14.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. He was a reliable contributor during the Pacers’ 2020 playoff run.
At his peak, the guard put up 23.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.4 steals during the 2017-18 season.
The Bucks, who finished with the best record in the league, got bounced in the second round by the Heat. They could certainly bolster their roster with a player like Oladipo.
