Even though the Los Angeles Lakers have become the preferred destination for Anthony Davis, the Milwaukee Bucks won't shy away from the chance to add another superstar to their lineup.

Milwaukee is currently sitting in the top spot for the Eastern Conference. Giannis Antetokounmpo has elevated the status of his entire team without having a true sidekick.

Well, the Bucks could possibly acquire Davis to create a formidable duo between two of the best athletes in the NBA.

Davis has been tremendous for the Pelicans, yet the lack of success in the postseason has really hindered his relationship with the franchise.

New Orleans isn't forced to ship Davis out of town before the trade deadline, but the team could possibly receive the most aggressive offers over the next 10 days.

In fact, Milwaukee is ready to make a huge splash on the trade market.

The Bucks are willing to offer any package of players on the roster outside of Antetokounmpo to the Pelicans for Davis, per Gery Woelfel.

Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe would be the next biggest names on Milwaukee's roster. However, New Orleans will most likely seek assets with future control over, such as Malcolm Brogdon and Thon Maker.

Two other intriguing options are D.J. Wilson and Donte DiVincenzo, who have shown promise throughout the season for the Bucks.

Despite all the rumors revolving around the Lakers, the Bucks have officially placed themselves in the sweepstakes for Davis.
