It looks like Jason Kidd isn't satisfied with Brandon Knight as his team's point guard next season. The Milwaukee Bucks are set to pursue restricted free agents Eric Bledsoe and Greivis Vasquez, and might be interested in the Houston Rockets' Jeremy Lin, according to ESPN's Marc Stein:
In addition to weighing possible trade for Lin, I'm told Bucks are pitching offer sheet to RFA Eric Bledsoe and pursuing PG Greivis Vasquez— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 5, 2014
It's worth noting that Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears reported that they do not want to pay $15 million for Lin's services next season.
Knight is a promising combo guard who is still only 22 -- another way of putting it is he's about five months younger than Miami Heat rookie Shabazz Napier -- and averaged 17.9 points and 4.9 assists per game for Milwaukee last season. He might be best at the shooting guard position, however, and could surely play alongside any of the guys being linked to the Bucks.
Whether they have a realistic shot at Bledsoe or Vasquez is another story. Bledsoe might command a maximum salary, and Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough has expressed numerous times that he plans to match any offer sheet. Vasquez has been extremely vocal about wanting to return to the Toronto Raptors, and on Friday it was reported that a deal was imminent.
