As was the case last year, the Milwaukee Bucks will have a multitude of roster decisions to make in the offseason. Among them, Wesley Matthews is set to once again hit free agency.

Matthews signed with the Bucks in December, and he went on to feature in 49 games over the remainder of the regular season. He ended up emerging as a vital role player for Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer, starting in each of the team's playoff games in the campaign.

Bucks general manager Jon Horst took some time on Friday to answer questions about the team heading into the 2022 NBA Draft. When asked on whether he would entertain the idea of re-signing Matthews, Horst left the door open to this option.

“I think if we have an opportunity to have him back, and I know that he's expressed that that's something he would like to do,” Horst said. “Hopefully we can figure something out when the time's right.”

Matthews did note in his exit interview that he is “hoping to be back” in Milwaukee, although it is currently not known as to whether the two sides engaged in such talks during the season.

Overall, Horst was simply a fan of what Matthews brought to the team, as the veteran guard took on multiple responsibilities during his half-season return to Milwaukee.

“At the end of the day, we picked up Wes sometime in December,” Horst said. “He ended up starting for us in the playoffs and gave more to this team in terms of blood, sweat, and tears.

“An ultimate competitor, an ultimate teammate. Understands his role, understands how to maximize his role, was incredibly efficient, and effective in what he did and guarding some of the best offensive players that our game has.”

Matthews is set to be among multiple Bucks players who will be out of a contract at the start of free agency, including Jevon Carter.
