Emergency Bucks podcast: Milwaukee trades for Serge Ibaka in deal that sends Donte DiVincenzo to Kings
The Bucks made a bigger splash than anticipated before the NBA trade deadline Thursday, landing big man Serge Ibaka in a four-way trade that sent Donte DiVincenzo, Semi Ojeleye and Rodney Hood elsewhere. Jim Owczarski and JR Radcliffe discuss the deal, what it signifies about the long-term health of Brook Lopez, what specifically Ibaka provides the Bucks in a playoff situation and what comes next with a couple open roster spots. Also, how does the Ben Simmons/James Harden swap change the picture in the Eastern Conference?
