The Bucks and Khris Middleton are nearing a five-year, $70 million deal.
What a difference three months makes, right? Middleton was behind Jared Dudley on the depth chart at the time of Jabari Parker's knee injury, but he turned in one of the best finishes of any player in the 2015 part of the season. In that span, Middleton averaged 16.7 points, 4.9 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.5 treys, which gave him third-round value in fantasy leagues. He'll be an early mid-round fantasy target next year with Jabari back. Jul 1 - 3:09 AM

According to a source close to the scene, Khris Middleton won't be a free agent for long and will reach a quick agreement to stay with the Bucks.

Middleton will be a restricted free agent this summer, but Milwaukee has given every intention that they will match any offer that he receives. Middleton averaged 16.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 3-pointers after the All-Star break, but his numbers could take a small hit with Jabari Parker (knee) coming back from injury. For now, expect to see Middleton in Milwaukee next season.

The Bucks are expected to match any offer sheet Khris MIddleton receives in free agency.

Turning it up a notch, when asked how likely it will be that Middleton will be on the Bucks training camp roster, a club source told ESPN's Marc Stein that it's a "10." Middleton should draw an annual average salary of at least $12 million on his next contract.

The Bucks intend to match any offer that comes in on Khris Middleton this offseason.

Middleton is set to become a restricted free agent this offseason, but according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, the Bucks have every intention of retaining his services. Middleton had a phenomenal year with the Bucks this season, posting averages of 16.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 three-pointers per game after the break. However, if he does remain in Milwaukee, his value will likely take a bit of a hit next season as it'll be difficult for him to average 14.1 shots per game with Jabari Parker back in the fold.
Jun 7 - 3:02 PM

Khris Middleton, who is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, said on Friday that he "definitely" wants to return to the Bucks next season.

"We have a lot of great pieces with the Bucks," Middleton said. "If we can stay together, we can do something special." The Bucks were one of the biggest surprises in the NBA last season, and Middleton was arguably their best player down the stretch. He is expected to get a serious pay raise this summer, and while Milwaukee intends to keep him, it will be interesting to see how committed they are if another team floats him a lucrative offer.

The Bucks want to re-sign Khris MIddleton this offseason.

Middleton has made no secret about his desire to return to Milwaukee, but we'll see how his market shakes out after a true breakout campaign that has him set to get paid. It wouldn't surprise us to see Middleton command around $12M annually, and that price point may be too rich for the Bucks' blood. Milwaukee will be able to match any offer Middleton receives.

Khris Middleton stated during his exit interview that he hopes to return with the Bucks next season.

"I hope to be back. I definitely feel everybody wants me to be back here," said Middleton regarding his impending free agency. Middleton will be a restricted free agent this offseason, and it'll be interesting to see how high the Bucks will go in matching offers after he had a career-year in Milwaukee. Khris really got going during the second-half of the season, putting in averages of 16.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.6 three-pointers and 1.4 steals per game. Middleton's value will be tied to where he lands, but if he remains with the Bucks, it's unlikely he'll be able to hoist up 14.1 shots per game when Jabari Parker comes back into the fold.
May 1 - 12:26 PM

Khris Middleton made 2-of-7 from the field for six points against the Bulls on Thursday with three rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 26 minutes.

While this was a disaster, he could have gone 0-of-50 and it wouldn't affect his offseason value. Middleton will get an offer sheet from the Bucks and become a restricted free agent. Even with the Bucks having two great forwards, the shift to shooting guard was a big success for the former Piston. Expect the Bucks to keep him, but he'll have a very tough time matching his fantasy production because Jabari Parker will take shots away from him.
Apr 30 - 9:50 PM

Khris Middleton scored 21 points in 38 minutes against the Bulls on Monday with four rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers on 8-of-16 from the field.

He was really hot in the first half with 15 points, but cooled off after halftime. Middleton wasn't shooting the ball well before this game, making 36.2 percent from the field for 17.0 points in his previous four. He'll likely have another good game in front of the home crowd on Thursday. For what it's worth, Middleton's 50.9 percent from the field in home games this regular season was 8.3 percent better than it was on the road.
Apr 27 - 11:05 PM

Khris Middleton scored 18 points on 6-of-17 from the field against the Bulls on Thursday, adding three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 49 minutes.

He hit a clutch shot late in regulation to get this to overtime. Middleton continues to be the floor spacer in the Bucks offense, which is absolutely essential with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Michael Carter-Williams yet to develop some range to their games. Even with Jabari Parker coming back next season, expect the Bucks to match all reasonable offers this summer for the restricted free agent.
Apr 23 - 11:22 PM

Khris Middleton scored 22 points on 8-of-20 from the field against the Bulls on Monday with six boards, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He played 38 minutes tonight, which was up from just 34 in Game 1. Middleton continues to play well after his terrific post-break averages of 16.8 points, 4.4 boards, 3.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 treys in 35.3 minutes. He's earned some serious money.
Apr 20 - 10:43 PM

Khris Middleton scored 18 points with two rebounds, one assist, four steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

For some reason, coach Jason Kidd was a little late bringing Middleton into the game during the fourth quarter. Middleton does have sub-par numbers against the Bulls and his 41.2 percent from the field against them is his lowest among any opponent with at least three games this season.
Apr 18 - 9:40 PM

The Bucks secured the No. 6 seed with Sunday's win vs. Brooklyn, aided by Khris Middleton's 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting, four rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

Middleton didn't turn the ball over in 30 minutes and he's rolling over his past three games, giving fantasy owners a final push during his career-best season. He doesn't get much fanfare but Middleton has been a steady top-70 fantasy value (8-cat) with career-high averages of 13.3 points on 46.2 percent shooting, 1.5 triples, 4.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.6 steals per game.
Apr 12 - 5:52 PM

Khris Middleton scored 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting (including three treys) with seven rebounds, two assists and six steals in Friday's win over the Knicks.

Middleton is one of the better waiver wire pickups this season and he has leveled out as a top-40 value in his new role as primary scorer for the Bucks.
Apr 11 - 1:01 AM

Khris Middleton hit 7-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes on Wednesday.

Middleton has been so steady and productive, without blowing anyone's mind, we hadn't blurbed him since March 26. He's averaging 14.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games, shooting 41 percent. And if Giannis Antetokounmpo misses any more games, Middleton could be even better.
