Apparently, the team is looking to add an All-Star level ball-handling guard to its roster, and it’s reportedly already asked about three such players in particular.
Milwaukee Bucks are looking to add a high impact player at the guard position depending on cost & availability.

The Bucks possess superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, who just earned his second straight MVP award and is arguably the game’s best player, at least in the regular season.
However, he’s a year away from being able to leave the Bucks high and dry by departing as a free agent.
Assuming Antetokounmpo refuses to sign a contract extension, Milwaukee will have one season to prove that it can build a championship team around him.
Acquiring a top-level guard who can handle the ball, be a legitimate scoring option, and ideally, also play defense would go a long way towards that goal.
