Robin Lopez Agrees To Two-Year, $9.8M Deal With Bucks

Brook Lopez has agreed to sign a four-year, $52 million deal to stay with the Milwaukee Bucks, league sources told ESPN on Sunday.

The Indiana Pacers have answered the call after Darren Collison suddenly and unexpectedly retired by announcing they had completed a massive sign-and-trade with the Milwaukee Bucks that got them Malcolm Brogdon.

Brogdon will be traded to IN in exchange for a 2020 first-round draft pick and consideration for two other future second-round picks, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade can not be finalized until Saturday at the earliest.

The Bucks' decision not to retain Brogdon, which it's quite clear was financial in nature, is going to be re-litigated for years to come.

Mike Budenholzer's team won 60 games and NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is under contract long-term, setting the stage for a bright future.

The fifth year is at Middleton's option, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because neither the team nor the player had revealed details publicly.

Brogdon averaged a career-high 15.6 points and 4.5 rebounds while shooting 50.5 percent from the field.

Information from ESPN's Tim Bontemps was used in this report.

His deal is not quite a max; he could have commanded closer to $190 million over the five years.

The Bucks found themselves short of depth at center last season after trading away John Henson and Thon Maker, and an attempt to fill that gap by signing Pau Gasol after he was bought out amounted to very little when Gasol suffered an injury after just three games, bringing an end to his season.

Wojnarowski tweeted shortly before the National Basketball Association free agency period started, "Brook Lopez is planning to agree to sign a four-year, $52 million deal to stay with the Milwaukee Bucks, league sources told ESPN".
