The Milwaukee Orange: Michael Carter-Williams & Tyler Ennis Traded to Bucks

New, 75 comments

In a bit of a shocker, Michael Carter-Williams, the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year, is headed to Milwaukee where he'll finally get to play with Tyler Ennnis.

Michael Carter-Williams and Tyler Ennis just missed out on playing together as members of the Syracuse Orange. They'll get a belated chance to be actual teammates now that they're both members of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Both former Orange were involved in an NBA Trade Deadline move that shipped them both to sunny Wisconsin.

The Sixers continue their quest to relegate themselves to the NCAA while the Suns apparently wanted to clear their bloating guard rotation and were willing to let go on Ennis rather than keep developing him.

To say the move came out of nowhere would be an understatement. We certainly didn't see it coming here at TNIAAM:

And MCW himself didn't even see it coming...

Meanwhile, we're still not sure if this is the extent of the fallout. Is Jerami Grant still on the Sixers? Even his brother isn't sure...

We'll wait to see what else shakes out but in the meantime, feel free to burn that Sixers and Suns gear and get ready to pledge allegiance to the Bucks.
