The Milwaukee Bucks small forward Khris Middleton is reportedly declining his $13 million player option to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Bucks intend to ink Middleton to a new deal.

Last season, the 27-year-old averaged 18.3 points, 4.3 assists and 6.0 rebounds per game, while shooting at 44.1 percent from the field.
