Bucks’ Brook Lopez told Mike Budenholzer he and Robin Lopez might get into a fight once a week
The Milwaukee Bucks signed Brook Lopez’s brother, Robin Lopez, in free agency this summer. The Lopez brothers haven’t been on the same team since their college days at Stanford, which was a decade ago.
While Brook is excited to play with Robin again, he did warn Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer that he and Robin might get into a fight in practice once a week.
“I did tell Bud. I was like Bud, you have to realize now — and my agent backed me up on this — we might get in a fight during practice like once a week, something like that,” Brook told Bucks.com. “They’re gonna have to separate us or they might just let us go.”
The Lopez brothers are quite the characters. The Bucks figure to be a fun team to watch in 2019-20 just off the strength of having Brook and Robin on the team.
Brook Lopez re-signed with the Bucks on a four-year deal worth $52 million this offseason. The 7-footer averaged 12.5 points and 4.9 rebounds for Milwaukee last season while shooting 45.2 percent from the field, 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 84.2 percent from the free-throw line.
Robin Lopez, meanwhile, signed a two-year, $9.8 million contract. He played with the Chicago Bulls last season and put up 9.5 points and 3.9 rebounds.
