Middleton will rejoin Bucks for $178M

Milwaukee Bucks' Brook Lopez reacts to his three-point basket during the second half of Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff finals against the Toronto Raptors Wednesday, May 15, 2019, in Milwaukee. Lopez plans to re-sign in Milwaukee on a four-year, $52 million contract, sources said earlier Sunday.

The Bucks are reportedly signing Middleton to a five-year, $178 million deal (the fifth year of the deal is also reportedly a player option).

Middleton's numbers were slightly down from the 2017-18 season as he averaged 18.3 points and 6.0 rebounds while shooting 44% from the field but he was finally validated this season with his first All-Star nod.

Brogdon was one of Milwaukee's most prominent free agents.

The Bucks are retaining two key players in Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez though, while they are trading Brogdon and have lost Nikola Mirotic. Perhaps his greatest value was as a 3-point shooter, where he connected on 36.5% and sank a career-best 187 3-pointers.

Milwaukee will be expected to contend once again in the East next season thanks to the continued development of MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, plus a solid supporting cast.
