LOS ANGELES, CA – FEBRUARY 14: A. Afflalo
With little activity from the Milwaukee Bucks in free agency so far, is there a free agent left who’s worth clearing cap space to sign?
As free agency winds down, the Milwaukee Bucks stand as one of the few teams who have not added any new players via free agency.
This is mainly a result of cap problems. The Bucks aren’t alone in that regard, as similar issues plague the majority of the NBA after the free agency bonanza that took place with last summer’s cap spike.
Still, for all that Milwaukee aren’t alone in that regard, there issues are pressing than many of their competitors. As their roster stands at present, the Bucks will be scheduled to pay the luxury tax at the end of next season.More from Free Agency

Cap space comes at a premium now. So, for the purposes of this article, we are going to say that in order to trade Mirza Teletovic, which would free up about $10.5 million in cap space, the Bucks would need to attach a lottery-protected first round pick with him.
Judging from recent salary dump-style trades designed to free up cap room, such as the Raptors trading DeMarre Carroll’s trade to the Nets, this seems like a fair estimate.
Now, the next step and the point of this article is to decide if that kind of price would eve be worth it.
Let’s take a look at a couple of the more intriguing free agents currently on the market, and decide if the fit, talent level and future implications warrant the Bucks pulling the trigger on a trade in order to sign them.>Next: Arron Afflalo
