The prolific scorer is the owner of another big deal — Boardroom takes a closer at the details of the Bucks’ Khris Middleton contract, as well as his career NBA earnings.
Khris Middleton is truly one of the best NBA players to have come through the G League since its inception. He was a second-round pick of the Detroit Pistons in 2012 out of Texas A&M, and his rights were sent to Milwaukee. Since then, he has worked to become an All-Star wing and was a vital piece to the Bucks winning the 2021 NBA championship.
Even after suffering a tough one injury in the 2021-22 playoffs in which he did not return to play until well into the 2022-23 regular season, Middleton still chose to opt out of the final year of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent. That decision proved to be one where he receives a bit more long-term security, as he and Milwaukee have agreed to a new three-year, $102 million deal with a player option included in the final year.
Boardroom takes a closer at the details behind the Bucks’ Khris Middleton contract, as well as his career earnings in the Association to date.

Total value: $102 million

Middleton chose to forego his $40.4 million player option in favor of this new deal, which will push his on-court career earnings total past the $200 million milestone.
