Milwaukee Bucks’ sixth man Bobby Portis will hit free agency, after declining his $3.8M player option, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
The Bucks can offer up to $5.9M to Portis this offseason, per Bobby Marks. Portis was an important part of Milwaukee’s championship run this past season, having an important role in the Finals against the Phoenix Suns.
The Bucks are hoping to retain Portis by offering the mid-level exception. He averaged 11.4 points, 7.1 rebounds per game and set career-highs with a 52.3 field-goal percentage and 47.1 three-point percentage.
Considering his production last season, Portis could be among the coveted free agents this offseason. It only remains to be seen if Milwaukee could retain the former Bulls’ forward to the team.
