Brook Lopez reportedly will stay with Bucks on four-year deal
The Milwaukee Bucks are looking to run it back next season and will likely be doing so with at least Brook Lopez.
Lopez is set to get a four-year, $52 million contract from the Bucks when free agency begins, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The Bucks were expected all along to try and re-sign Lopez.
Lopez was signed by Milwaukee at a bargain price of $3.38 million last offseason and fit in perfectly with the team. He shot a career-best 36.5 percent on threes, averaging 12.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game.
Milwaukee still has Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon to worry about. Middleton is an unrestricted free agent, while Brogdon is a restricted free agent. They would like to keep both players. They plan to waive George Hill but would like to bring him back as well. Midseason acquisition Nikola Mirotic will not be returning to the team as he has chosen to play in Spain instead.
