NBA Free Agency Opens.
Sunday marked the official start to Free Agency for the NBA, and as deals across the league involving big name stars like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving started to spread across the internet – media reports say the Milwaukee Bucks will be bringing back two key pieces to their Eastern Conference Finals run last year. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Sunday that Khris Middleton agreed to a five-year, $178 million dollar deal to return to Milwaukee. Woj also reported earlier Sunday afternoon that Brook Lopez will also return to the Bucks on a four-year, $52 million deal.
Media reports also indicate the Bucks will be bringing in another Lopez – Robin Lopez, Brook’s brother, will come over from Chicago on a two-year, $10 million deal.
George Hill will also reportedly be returning to Milwaukee on a three-year, $29 million deal.
While those pieces are set to return, it appears Malcolm Brogdon will be departing. ESPN reported Brogdon will be part of a sign-and-trade agreement, and will agree to a four-year, $85 million deal with the Indiana Pacers. Indiana will in turn send a first-round and two second-round picks to the Bucks.
