Milwaukee Bucks guard Bryn Forbes is declining his $2.45 million player option for the 2021-22 season and becoming an unrestricted free agent, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Forbes, who averaged career-highs in both field goal percentage (47.3) and three-point percentage (45.2), will now look to secure a multi-year contract this offseason.

The Bucks can still attempt to re-sign Forbes, but they would only be able to offer him a salary of about $2.8 million or use up to $5.9 million of a midlevel exception, both which seem unlikely.

The 28-year-old ranked fourth in the NBA in three-point shooting and third best among players with 200-plus attempts.

Forbes also averaged 12.2 points per game on 48 percent three-point shooting in February when star guard Jrue Holiday missed time.
