The Milwaukee Bucks are at the top of the Eastern Conference Division with a 13 to 3 win-loss record early on the 2019-2020 NBA season. Giannis Antetokounmpo has been leading the charge with an MVP caliber campaign averaging 29.9 points, 13.9 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 blocks in 16 games.

However, the loss of Malcolm Brogdon in the summer and Khris Middleton's recent injury poses a threat to the Bucks' future championship bid. Middleton is scheduled to miss three to four weeks. The 28-year-old shooting guard has been on a tear offensively this year.

The South Carolina native is averaging 18.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game while shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 39.3 percent beyond the arc. His absence would have a significant impact on Milwaukee's offense.

The team's current shooting guards, Pat Connaughton, Sterling Brown, Donte DiVincenzo, and Kyle Korver are all averaging below 10 points per game. It's indicative that Buck's would need to fill the roster with a capable scorer to fill the void of Middleton's absence.

Necessarily, adding another scorer in the roster would add vital firepower in the team's bid for a deep playoff run later this season. Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer has a perfect candidate to fill the spot.

Tjarks said that "the best option is probably Sacramento's Bogdan Bogdanovic." The 27-year-old Serbian sharpshooter is efficiently shooting 43.8 percent from the three-point line on 6.8 attempts per game.

Bogdanovic could also run the point, and according to NBA Advanced Stats, he's averaging 7.6 drives per game, a compliment to Milwaukee's offensive approach. Despite being stuck behind Sacramento's Buddy Hield and De'Aaron Fox, he's managed to average 15.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists. He also has a player efficiency rating of 18.84.

He could fully blossom in Milwaukee's system, coming off the bench or as a starter along with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton at the small forward spot.

Giving up Malcolm Brogdon in the summer might have hurt the team offensively and with Middleton out, things could spiral out of control in a snap. Brogdon, a former rookie of the year, is enjoying his role in Indiana and is having a career season.

He's currently averaging 19.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 8.2 assists, a steal while shooting 46.4 percent from the field and 30.8 from three. Trading for Bogdanovic would at least make up from that mistake. The Bucks have a lot to offer if they'd consider the trade.
