Bucks likely aware already of Malcolm Brogdon’s asking price, ‘scared’ which team might offer it
Brogdon will be a restricted free agent, which means that he can sign an offer sheet from another team, but the Bucks can match to keep him in Milwaukee. However, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Bucks are aware of Brogdon’s asking price, which might be too high for the franchise to match.
“I think Milwaukee has a number that’s too high for them,” Lowe said via Sagar Trika of Blazers Edge. “And they’re sitting there getting scared about where that number’s gonna come from.”
The Boston Celtics were tagged as one of the teams who might go all in for Brogdon this summer because they are about to lose Kyrie Irving in free agency. However, the Celtics might now be out of the picture for Brogdon because Boston is reportedly the frontrunner to sign Kemba Walker, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
The three-year veteran, who was selected 36th overall in the 2016 NBA Draft, is coming off the best season of his career. The former Virginia standout averaged 15.6 points on top of 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 64 games for the Bucks last season, helping his team end up with the best regular-season record.
