NBA free agency news Khris Middleton will decline option with Bucks command max deal

Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton has declined his $13M player option to become an unrestricted free agent, but it sounds like the two sides are working on a long-term deal.

The 27-year-old Middleton had a breakout campaign during the 2018-19 season, notching his first All-Star bid while helping to lead the Bucks to a league-best 60-22 record.

Fresh off of an All-Star campaign in which he played a vital role in Milwaukee's deepest playoff run in almost two decades, Middleton will forego the $13 million he would have earned next season in order to chase max money.

While there is no confirmation, we expect the company to launch the Motorola One Action and One Pro smartphones at the same time. The phone also reportedly features a bottom-mounted headphone jack, a small raindrop-style display notch, and slim bezels.

Middleton declined his option on Wednesday, but that doesn't necessarily portend a departure from Milwaukee.

According to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Middleton is expected to command a five-year contract with the Bucks.

Middleton, who signed a five-year, $70 million deal in 2015, is reportedly expected to demand a max contract from the Bucks and is part of the team's offseason priorities.
