Damian Lillard was sent from the Portland Trailblazers to the Milwaukee Bucks in a three-team deal that included the Phoenix Suns. Ben Maller grades all 3 teams, but the perfect score is reserved for Milwaukee.
Ben Maller: "We do give the Milwaukee basketball team an A+++ on the Maller Report Card which is the most important report card there is, because they are now in the catbird seat as the on-paper beast of the East. You've got Dame Lillard teaming up with Giannis, peanut butter and jelly together again. Lillard, his attitude is going to be the key to all of this, if he's fully engaged. And it sounds like he is."
