EVERY TRADE WE WILL SEE THIS SEASON: TRADE 7 (TRADE DEADLINE)
NOTE: Technically February 5th due to expiration of Traded Player Exception
MILWAUKEE BUCKS GET: Malachi Richardson (absorbed into Rashad Vaughn Traded Player Exception)
TORONTO RAPTORS GET: Future Top 55 Protected Milwaukee Bucks Second Round Draft Pick
The Milwaukee Bucks add a player that could provide shooting off the bench without losing anything. Richardson’s potential is at least worth that.
The Toronto Raptors save more than Richardson’s salary alone given the luxury tax. Richardson is not worth paying the extra salary so this is an easy way to cut costs.
