Milwaukee Bucks reserve big man Miles Plumlee has been made available for a trade, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.
The Bucks acquired Plumlee last season at the trade deadline in the three-team deal that sent Brandon Knight to the Phoenix Suns and brought in Michael Carter-Williams from the Philadelphia 76ers. Tyler Ennis went to Milwaukee from Phoenix along with Plumlee.
The 27-year-old big man has barely played for the Bucks this season. He’s appeared in 15 games and seen just 6.3 minutes per contests, with averages of 1.7 points and 1.3 rebounds. He hasn’t played since Dec. 2.
Milwaukee can’t expect much value in return in any potential Plumlee deal, but perhaps they could snag a second-round pick out of a team desperate for big-man depth, or maybe he could be swapped for another low salary player at a position of need. He could also be a throw-in on a larger deal, although it’s unclear if the Bucks would be prepared to make a bigger move.
