Bucks agree to re-sign Lopez for $52M

The Indiana Pacers are reshaping their backcourt, trading two future second-round picks to the Milwaukee Bucks for point guard Malcolm Brogdon, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Meanwhile, the Bucks have ensured they are retaining key pieces of the team around Antetokounmpo and have secured the long-term futures of Middleton and Brook Lopez, according to Yahoo Sports. Since then, though, he has shot a staggering 1,224 triples - including taking nearly twice as many 3s (512) as 2s (274) this past season with the Bucks.

It will be dwarfed by the news of Kevin Durant becoming the newest Brooklyn Net, but the Milwaukee Bucks are reportedly set to make a solid free agent signing of former Net Brook Lopez.

He averaged a career-high 15.6 points and 4.5 rebounds per game last season.

He has spent each of his first three seasons in Milwaukee. Shams Charania of The Athletic tweeted that Hill has agreed to a three-year, $29 million contract.

Lopez will become teammates with his brother, Brook Lopez, for the first time in the National Basketball Association.

He averaged 10.8 points with the Cavaliers in 2018-19, but that number dropped to 6.8 during the regular season in Milwaukee.
