Time to Rebuild Not Reload!
- Updated: July 3, 2013
The Milwaukee Bucks have been mediocre for the last 12 seasons, and it is time to rebuild and look towards the future. Instead of finishing with a near .500 record and possibly making the playoffs as an eighth seed for a second consecutive season, it is time to restart and build a team that can compete at a high level for multiple seasons.
The Bucks are built around their young frontcourt of Larry Sanders, Ersan Ilyasova and John Henson, along with recent draft picks, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nate Wolters. Rather than overpaying for veterans, the Bucks need to see what they have in these young players by giving them opportunities to play and develop.
The Bucks are years away from competing with Miami, Chicago, and Indiana in the Eastern Conference, so now is the time to rebuild for the future. The 2013-2014 season will not be an exciting time for Bucks’ fans, but if it means getting a high lottery pick in the deep 2014 NBA Draft, and allowing their youngsters to develop, it will be worth it in the end.
