Bucks and Hornets Agree on Trade

Bucks-Hornets Trade

Bucks Get Hibbert, Hawes, Hornets Acquire Plumlee

We have a trade!

On Tuesday afternoon, the Charlotte Hornets and Milwaukee Bucks struck a deal that will send Miles Plumlee to Charlotte, while the Hornets will send Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes to Milwaukee. Subsequently, the Bucks will waive Steve Novak to make room for the incoming reinforcements.

Plumlee re-signed with the Bucks over the offseason after a solid 2015-16 campaign to a four-year, $52-million deal, but has since watched his numbers plummet. Plumlee has only seen 9.7-minutes of action per game and has had his PER drop to 8.0, after putting up a PER of 17.4 last season. With Greg Monroe finally coming around and John Henson and Thon Maker figured to be in the Bucks long-term plans, Plumlee became expendable.

Coming to Milwaukee are two players that may turn into nothing more than rentals. Roy Hibbert is playing out a one-year, $5-million contract. The former All-Star is averaging 5.2-points and 3.6-rebounds this season on 54.2% shooting from the field. Meanwhile, Hawes, predominantly a stretch-four has averaged 7.3-points and 4.2-boards per contest this year with the Hornets. Hawkes has a player option for the 2017-18 season.

While Plumlee will provide some front court depth for the Hornets, it will be interesting to see how the Bucks choose to use Hibbert and Hawes moving forward.
