Record: 58-24, 1st in East, 1st overall
In: Beasley, R Lopez
Team Aging: Middleton injury comeback, Lopez, Holiday getting older, no significant improving youth, maybe Beauchamp becomes a regular part of the rotation
Summary: New coach, former Celtic Adrian Griffin. Bucks have underperformed their seeding several years, with the exception of the championship year. Giannis did not extend, leaving his options open for a trade or free agency in the future. They have to be in a win now move
Projection: Regular season will probably go down to the top 3 in the east with an emphasis on peaking for the playoffs. First time head coach with a lot of veterans is an interesting combination. Interesting parallel with the Celtics with a good regular season, drop coverage defense that was exposed by the same Heat team. I expect a midseason trade for scoring role players.
