The Milwaukee Bucks currently sit tied for second place in the Eastern Conference as they attempt to get back to the NBA Finals for the second time in three years. One veteran player on their roster won't be continuing that journey with them, however.

The Bucks and center Serge Ibaka have mutually agreed to find a trade partner for the 14-year NBA veteran. Ibaka has been away from the team and hasn't suited up since New Year's Day.

Serge Ibaka Trade Rumors

While Ibaka certainly isn't the All-Star center he used to be, he can still bring a ton of value to a team's defense, rim protection and rebounding. He is also a significant locker-room presence with a ton of playoff experience.

Ibaka won't fetch much on the open market, but expect a contending team to come calling as the NBA trade deadline approaches next month.
