The Bucks made the playoffs in 2013 – then fell to an NBA-worst 15-67 the following year.

They rebounded to make the playoffs in 2015 – then stumbled to a disappointing 33-49 the following year.

They returned to the playoffs in 2017 – and are an underwhelming 4-5 this year.

So, of course this up-and-down franchise included incredibly complicated protections on the first-round pick it traded to the Suns for Eric Bledsoe.
