Report: Bucks Connaughton to exercise player option
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Bucks guard Pat Connaughton will make good on his postseason comments that he’ll exercise his player option to return to Milwaukee.
According to a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Connaughton will utilize his player option worth $5.7 million for next season. Connaughton is also eligible for an extension later this summer.
Last season Connaughton averaged just under ten points a game, a career high, as his minutes on the floor increased for the fourth straight season.
Connaughton signed with the Bucks in 2018, and played a big role coming off the bench on the 2021 championship team.
Bobby Portis is the biggest name yet to make a decision on a player option with the deadline set for June 29th.
