Magliore and Mo Williams Trade Rumors Heating Up
I can tell you secondhand that the Magliore trade rumors are at a near boil. It seems, according to Gary Woefel, aka "the only living Bucks insider", that several possible deals are in the works. The dream deal, as far as I'm concerned, is the 'Magliore and Mo Williams for Charlie Villenueva and Mo Peterson' trade. To my mind, that would be the steal of the millennium for the Bucks. Two young players for a useless aging center and an admittedly effective, but somewhat unreliable, young point guard.
One other rumor has them trading the tandem to Toronto for the No. 1 pick. That one doesn't really float my boat. I don't see much value at No. 1. Woefel says the Bucks like this foreign guy from Italy. The reports I've read say he's another tall European softie who bombs from the outside but won't roll up his sleeves and get in the toaster. No thanks.
For his part, Magliore said he would be happy to stay in Milwaukee. He said he likes the Senator and he likes GM Harris. He did say that if he ends up in Milwaukee next season he wants to be a bigger part of the offense... You read that right. He wants to be a bigger part of the offense. Stop laughing, damn it!
