With Khris Middleton going down for six months due to a torn left hamstring, the Bucks opted to explore the trade market for some additional help offensively. He should offer the Bucks a plug-and-play option at both forward spots and could be one of a few different players to take on some of the scoring burden with the Bucks losing their top offensive player from a year ago. Beasley averaged 18.2 minutes per game a season ago, but has the potential to see that increased with the Bucks, who are in desperate need of some offensive help. He'll still likely come off the bench to start the season, but we should get a clearer picture of the Bucks' lineup once training camp is underway.
Roberts went undrafted out of UNC-Asheville a year ago and spent time with the Wizards during training camp before being waived. Instead of developing in the D-League, he opted to go overseas for his 2015-16 campaign, spending time with the Brisbane Spartans of the South East Australian Basketball League. While he'll join the Bucks for camp, Roberts doesn't appear to have a legitimate chance of cracking the regular season roster.
Middleton suffered a torn left hamstring that will need surgery and is expected to miss approximately six months of action.
It's unclear exactly when the injury occurred, but it's a huge blow to the Bucks' offensive attack, as Middleton is coming off a 2015-16 campaign where he started 79 games and led the team with 18.2 points per outing. Middleton is expected to undergo surgery in the next couple of weeks and will then start the long road to recovery, which is currently projected to take six months. With Middleton on the sidelines for the forseeable future, look for the Bucks to rely even more on their young tandem of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker offensively. Newly signed Matthew Dellavedova is also slated to see a much larger workload in his first season with the Bucks, although it remains to be seen who the Bucks will go with in their starting lineup. Additionally, look for the Bucks to explore any additional free agent shooting guard options left on the open market.
Brown hasn't played in the NBA since the 2014-15 season, when he took part in 19 games with the Lakers and averaged 11.9 points on 41.2 percent shooting over 29.9 minutes per game. After failing to garner much NBA interest last summer, Brown headed overseas in 2015-16, suiting up for the Foshan Long Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association before returning to the States to play for the Lakers' D-League affiliate, the Los Angeles D-Fenders. In eight games with the D-Fenders, Brown averaged 16.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists over 27 minutes per contest. With the Bucks already having 15 guaranteed contracts on the books, Brown faces long odds of making the roster and may have to return to the D-League or head back overseas to begin the upcoming campaign.
The Bucks inked Henry to a training camp deal at the end of August, but decided to part ways with him after only three weeks. Formerly one the top players in his class coming out of high school, Henry is attempting an NBA comeback after spending most of 2015-16 in the D-League. Henry, the No. 12 overall pick in the 2010 draft, last appeared in nine games for the Lakers in 2014-15.
