Now, Milwaukee is swapping a big for another guard.

Though a combo guard, Brogdon has primarily played shooting guard this season. Tim Frazier is a point guard. So, this isn’t a clear replacement.
Frazier, who spent training camp with Milwaukee, is a decent backup point guard. He’ll provide depth behind Eric Bledsoe and George Hill – depth missing without Brogdon. But Brogdon was merely insurance at point guard. His main role was off the ball.
Perhaps, with Frazier, the Bucks will use Hill more at shooting guard. More likely, they’ll continue to lean on Khris Middleton, Tony Snell, Donte DiVincenzo, Pat Connaughton and Sterling Brown at the position.
Christian Wood is more than a small loss. The 23-year-old has looked good in the minor league and limited NBA minutes. He possesses long-term intrigue.
Milwaukee is rightfully emphasizing the present. I’m just unconvinced Frazier moves the needle now.
