MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WLUC) - The Milwaukee Bucks are confirming that they are keeping Khris Middleton.
A person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press earlier Sunday that Middleton will sign a five-year deal worth nearly $179 million. Bucks general manager Jon Horst did not confirm the terms, though was permitted to say that the team is keeping the top running mate to NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Horst says, "we intend to enter into a player contract with Khris once the moratorium period has ended."
Teams are permitted to announce their intentions to enter into deals even during the moratorium. None can be executed until that period ends Saturday.
