Kaplan: Bucks should focus on championships, not regular-season milestones (1:31)

Emily Kaplan and Ramona Shelburne react to Bucks owner Marc Lasry's statement that the Bucks are focused on surpassing Michael Jordan's Bulls 70-win season total. (1:31)

With minimal cap space and their star player potentially set to become one of the most sought-after free agents in NBA history in 2021, the long-term upside of the Milwaukee Bucks rests partially on the internal development of their young prospects.

While Giannis Antetokounmpo's supporting cast has played a huge role in the Bucks' league-best 41-7 record, a lot of this roster is on the wrong side of age 30, including Eric Bledsoe (30), George Hill (33), Brook Lopez (31), Wesley Matthews (33) and Ersan Ilyasova (32).

With that in mind, after getting a chance to scout this team at the Milwaukee-Charlotte game in Paris, let's take a look at the Bucks' under-26 players and whether or not it makes sense for general manager John Horst to try to flip them for upgrades next to Giannis heading into the 2020 NBA trade deadline.
