Everyone, it seems, has a solution for what ails the Milwaukee Bucks.

Everyone except the Bucks, that is.

But with Milwaukee facing a particularly challenging offseason even by its standards, some want the Bucks to blow up their roster and start over. Some want them to let their backcourt of Brandon Jennings, Monta Ellis and J.J. Redick walk. Some want two of the three back. Some want one.

Some want coach Jim Boylan fired (congrats, you’ll get your wish). Some want general manager John Hammond fired (sorry, he just signed an extension). Still others want Herb Kohl to sell the team (what, the Seattle Bucks sounds good to you?).

With all the free advice the Bucks are getting, they don’t need much more, but here’s my singular wish for Wisconsin’s NBA franchise:

Pick a plan, any plan. Then stick with it.

In addition to the usual lackadaisical defense and selfishness on offense, the Bucks once again were guilty of waffling as a franchise this season. They appeared to be building a young roster for the future, but at some point they decided making the playoffs as an eighth seed and serving as a first-round playoff appetizer for the defending champion Miami Heat was a better option.

That mid-season panic attack has left the franchise’s decision-makers in a pickle. They can’t attract or keep good enough players to challenge the NBA’s elite teams and they can’t go back to square one and start rebuilding because they need a new arena.

This season’s attempt to make the playoffs at all costs looked like a bad idea at the time, and that’s exactly how it turned out. Trading away promising young forward Tobias Harris for a two-month rental on the overrated Redick is precisely the reason why franchises like Milwaukee are perpetually mediocre, or worse.

Fans get angry with the Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers for building almost exclusively through the draft, but at least those franchises have a plan, one they deviate from only in special-needs situations. The Bucks were in eighth place when they acquired Redick and, as expected, never made a run to improve their status and escape certain elimination by the Heat. Now Redick is an unrestricted free agent.

The Bucks got a bounce when Boylan replaced Scott Skiles as coach in January, winning eight of 11. The Redick trade in February gave them another bounce as they went 6-2. In all other regular-season and playoff games, however, Milwaukee was 24-43. The bottom line is the Bucks weren’t a very good team, certainly not good enough to trade away a potential long-term starter for a four-and-out playoff appearance that won’t be remembered a year from now.

The Bucks do have a few solid building blocks for the future in big men Larry Sanders, John Henson and Ersan Ilyasova. But that frontline would look so much more promising with Harris at the small forward spot.
