The Milwaukee Bucks will bring Pat Connaughton back into the fold on a two-year deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Connauhgton will earn $8.3 million over the course of the deal.
Connaughton has established himself as a valuable role player for the Bucks and will return to the squad as they look to avenge their disappointing finish in the 2020 NBA postseason.
Connaughton averaged 5.4 points and 4.2 rebounds per game off the bench in 2019-20 and will return to significantly different lineup in 2020-21 given that the team has already traded George Hill and Eric Bledsoe for Jrue Holiday.
Connaughton represented the Bucks in the 2020 NBA slam dunk contest.
