Report: Khris Middleton re-signs with Bucks on 3-year deal

Khris Middleton is a 3-time All-Star and a reliable 3-point shooter.

All-Star forward Khris Middleton will remain with the Milwaukee Bucks after agreeing to a three-year contract worth $102 million, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

After playing his first NBA season with the Detroit Pistons, Middleton was traded to the Bucks on July 31, 2013, along with Brandon Knight and Vyacheslav Kravtsov for Brandon Jennings. Since then, Middleton has emerged as a premier „3-and-D” perimeter player, earning three All-Star honors during his time with the Bucs.

Middleton is a reliable scorer alongside Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. Since becoming a regular starter in the 2015-16 season, Middleton has averaged 19 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 4.5 ast and 1.2 spg. He has shot 37% or better on 3-pointers in six of his 11 seasons and has made 140 or more 3-pointers in six of his last eight seasons.

The 6-foot-7 forward was a key part of the Bucks’ championship team in 2021 and delivered two memorable performances in the NBA Finals against the Phoenix Suns. He scored 40 points on 15-for-33 shooting in Game 4 in a 109–103 victory to tie the series at 2–2. In Game 5, he had 29 points on 12-for-23 shooting to help Milwaukee take a 3-2 series lead in Game 6.

Middleton, who turns 32 on Aug. 12, averaged 15.1 points, 4.9 assists and 4.2 rebounds last season but played in just 33 games due to a series of injuries.

He missed the first 20 games of the season while recovering from wrist surgery and sat out 18 straight games during the season with a sore right knee.
