Milwaukee Bucks and Grayson Allen have reached an agreement for a two-year extension, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Allen agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal.

Allen, 26, arrived to Milwaukee via trade this past offseason. He compiled averages of 10.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists, shooting 40 percent from deep.

Allen started his career with the Grizzlies, after Memphis selected him with the 21st overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft. Monday was the last day for teams to agree to rookie-scale extensions with players from the 2018 draft class.

The Bucks are taking a low risk here with the two years and $20 million on this contract. Even if things don’t go well for Allen, Bucks, the franchise can utilize the player’s contract in a trade.
