The 1999–2000 season was the Milwaukee Bucks' 32nd season in the NBA. During the offseason, the Bucks acquired Danny Manning from the Orlando Magic, who acquired him from the Phoenix Suns. The Bucks played around .500 for most of the first half of the season before struggling in February posting a 3–9 record. With less than a month to go, the Bucks playoff chances appeared bleak as they had a 32–37 record in late March. However, down the stretch, they won ten of their final 13 games to sneak into the playoffs, finishing fifth in the Central Division with a 42–40 record. Ray Allen and Glenn Robinson were both selected for the 2000 NBA All-Star Game. In the first round of the playoffs, they would lose 3–2 to the top-seeded Indiana Pacers. Following the season, Manning signed as a free agent with the Utah Jazz, and Vinny Del Negro was traded to the Golden State Warriors.
