The Milwaukee Bucks have signed guard Pat Connaughton to a multi-year extension.

“Pat is a key contributor to our success with his energy, toughness, teamwork and three-point shooting,” said Bucks General Manager Jon Horst. “Pat has continued to embrace our fans and the city of Milwaukee, and we’re glad to have agreed to an extension with him.”

Last season – his fourth with the Bucks – Connaughton played in 65 games (19 starts) and averaged a career-high 9.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in a career-high 26.0 minutes per game.

He shot 45.8% from the field, 39.5% from three, and 83.3% from the free-throw line while knocking down a career-best 2.2 threes per game.
