NBA Star Chris Middleton Expected to Sign New Contract with Milwaukee Bucks
Renowned forward Chris Middleton has made a surprising decision by relinquishing his upcoming season’s salary, which amounted to a staggering $40 million. This move indicates his intention to secure a long-term contract, and all signs point towards his continued association with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Middleton will now become an unrestricted free agent, granting him the freedom to choose his next destination in the NBA.
The player’s involvement in the search for the new Milwaukee coach has been seen as a strong indication of his commitment to the team, further reinforcing the belief that he will remain with the franchise.
Despite facing a challenging season due to injuries that hindered his performance, Middleton remains an integral part of the Wisconsin team and played a pivotal role in the Bucks’ NBA championship victory in 2021.
Having previously signed a lucrative 5-year, $178 million contract with the Bucks in 2019, the 31-year-old three-time All-Star is now poised to negotiate a new deal.
The information was initially disclosed by renowned ESPN journalist Adrian Wojnarowski.
