Damian Lillard To Milwaukee Bucks Trade Left NBA Players Stunned
Yesterday, a Woj Bomb shook up the NBA landscape, when it was reported that Damian Lillard got traded to the Milwaukee Bucks.
This hit everyone by surprise – not a Lillard trade, which was imminent, but a trade to the Bucks is what totally happened out of the blue.
Here’s an overview of the entire trade:
The Bucks get:
- G Damian Lillard
The Trail Blazers get:
- G Jrue Holiday, C DeAndre Ayton, F Toumani Camara, the Bucks’ 2029 first-round pick, and a pick swap in 2028 and 2030
The Suns get:
- C Jusuf Nurkic, F Nassir Little, G Keon Johnson, G Grayson Allen
As you can imagine even NBA players were stunned by the trade, that pairs Giannis and Lillard and puts the Bucks right on top of the top contenders for the upcoming 2023-24 season. Here are some of the best reactions:
