Reports indicate Pacers will sign Malcolm Brogdon, Jeremy Lamb in free agency


IN will send a first round and two future second round draft picks to the Bucks for Brogdon.

And after signing with the Bucks a year ago for their biannual exception, worth $3.4 million, Lopez became an essential part of Milwaukee's remarkable turnaround this season and its elite units at both ends of the court.

Lopez averaged 12.5 points and 4.9 rebounds with the Bucks last season while hitting 2.3 3-pointers per game at a career-high 36.5 percent rate.

The Milwaukee Bucks emerged from the 2018-19 season in fantastic shape.

Malcolm Brogdon will sign a four-year, $85 million deal and then be traded to the Pacers for a first- round pick and two future second-round picks. The seven year National Basketball Association veteran played three years with the Thunder and four more with the Hornets after being drafted 12th overall in 2012 out of UConn. Perhaps his greatest value was as a 3-point shooter, where he connected on 36.5% and sank a career-best 187 3-pointers.

Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez are planning to return to Milwaukee, according to ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski.

They are under pressure to keep a competitive team together in order to entice Giannis Antetokounmpo to sign with them long term next offseason.
