Bucks re-sign Portis, agree with 3 other free agents
The Milwaukee Bucks re-signed fan favorite power forward Bobby Portis to a four-year, $49 million contract, according to multiple outlets.
Portis, 27, helped the Bucks win a title in 2021 while on a very team-friendly contract. Now, Portis has a contract on par with what his value is on the open market. He started 59 games last season for Milwaukee, averaging over 14 points and 9 rebounds a game.
The Bucks are also bringing back guards Jevon Carter and Wesley Matthews. Carter is getting a two-year deal, per reports, while Matthews is back on a one-year deal.
The team is also reportedly adding three-point sharpshooter Joe Ingles on a one-year deal worth $6.5 million. Ingles, 34, has played eight NBA seasons, mostly with the Utah Jazz, and is a career 40 percent three-point shooter.
Ingles was traded last season to the Trail Blazers but suffered a torn ACL and missed the rest of the season.
