Malcolm Brogdon heading to the Pacers

The Milwaukee Bucks entered NBA Free Agency with the knowledge they needed to make a few tough decisions. Restricted Free Agent Malcolm Brogdon was high on that list.

On Sunday, the Bucks made their decision on the combo guard. After retaining free agents Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez, the Bucks decided to move on from Brogdon.

The good news is they didn’t lose him for nothing. According to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Milwaukee agreed to a sign-and-trade with the Indiana Pacers sending Brogdon in exchange for a first-round pick and two second-round picks. Brogdon will sign a four-year, $85 million deal with Indiana.

If the Bucks decided to match the Pacers’ offer, they would’ve gone into the luxury tax. This move may have had more to do with money than anything else. Replacing Brogdon will have its own challenges. He is coming off a season where he shot over 50% from the field, over 40% from three-point range and over 90% from the free throw line becoming just the eighth player in NBA history to post those numbers.

This move will give Milwaukee some cap flexibility for the future and a few much-needed draft picks. GM Jon Horst has shown he has plenty of tricks up his sleeve during his time in the Bucks’ front office. It will be interesting to see what his next move is.

Bucks outlook (44:45)

Brogdon out indefinitely with plantar fascia tear in right foot

MILWAUKEE | Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon has a minor plantar fascia tear in his right foot. The injury was discovered Saturday when he underwent an MRI.

The Bucks did not announce a timetable for his return but, according to ESPN, Brogdon is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

This is a big loss for the Bucks. Brogdon has been one of the most consistent pieces on this team. He is averaging a career-high 15.6 points in 64 starts this season. He is also shooting 50.5% from the field, 42.6% from beyond the arc and 92.8% from the foul line. There have been only 13 50/40/90 seasons in NBA history.

Bucks lose Malcolm Brogdon for 6-to-8 weeks

Milwaukee is getting forward Jabari Parker back just as its losing guard Malcolm Brogdon.

The Bucks announced Friday that Brogdon suffered a partially torn quadriceps tendon in the loss at Minnesota Thursday night and would be out 6-to-8 weeks. The injury comes on the heels of guard Eric Bledsoe missing the matchup with the Timberwolves because of an ankle injury.

The 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year, Brogdon was averaging 13.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists for Milwaukee this season.

His absence likely means a further increase in minutes for rookie Sterling Brown and veteran Matthew Dellavedova in the team’s backcourt.

Milwaukee had been looking forward to getting its entire preferred rotation on the floor together for the first time in several years with Parker’s return from a torn ACL planned for Friday night against the New York Knicks. That plan will apparently have to wait another month and a half or so.

Bucks fire Kidd, defeat Suns 109-105

Monday was an interesting day for the Milwaukee Bucks as it started with the franchise relieving Jason Kidd of his duties as head coach. Later Monday night the Bucks snapped a short two game losing skid with a 109-105 win over the Phoenix Suns.

Forward Khris Middleton had 35 points on the evening. His effort was aided by guard Malcolm Brogdon who finished with a career-high 32 points in his return from a one game absence. Brogdon missed Milwaukee’s loss to Philadelphia on Saturday night while he was handling a personal matter.

The Bucks trailed Phoenix 79-76 to start the fourth quarter but outscored the Suns 33-26 in the game’s final period. Middleton and Brogdon combined for 23 of Milwaukee’s 33 points. Middleton made all four shots he attempted in the quarter.

Phoenix was led by forward TJ Warren in scoring with 23 points. Center Greg Monroe had 19 points and seven rebounds in his return to Milwaukee after being traded from the Bucks to the Suns earlier in the season.

Milwaukee All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo missed his second consecutive game with a sore right knee. He is expected to return on Friday night when the Bucks host the Brooklyn Nets.
