They've already begun down this path by re-signing Eric Bledsoe in March and reportedly trading Tony Snell and the Milwaukee has a plethora of important players on the free agent market and will need to work to keep them all. Malcolm Brogdon may be the easiest to bring back, as he's a restricted free agent. However, Brook Lopez, Khris Middleton and Nikola Mirotic are all unrestricted. George Hill will likely join that

Milwaukee Bucks sharpshooter Khris Middleton had a tough time choosing between Cardi B and Beyonce.

“Khris has thousands of opportunities to invest money into different sectors so we are excited to have him as part of our team. Though he has ten more years in the NBA to play, with this opportunity he will be able to be a part of a professional basketball ownership journey in one of the most coveted places in the world," Martin said.

“Someone of Khris’s stature investing in the Brisbane Bullets organisation represents the ongoing, unprecedented rise of the NBL,” added Martin.

“It has quickly become the second best basketball league in the world. Khris and the rest of the sports world are quickly realising the quality of the league.”

Khris Middleton stands close to joining elite company and will have the chance to make history with the Milwaukee Bucks once the 2019-20 NBA season resumes. Significantly, Middleton currently stands .01 percent away from the exclusive 50-40-90 club. If he can raise his field goal percentage to 50 while maintaining his 3-point percentage above 40 and his free throw percentage above 90 by the conclusion of the regular season, then Middleton would join an efficient group that only holds nine players throughout NBA history.

The 29-year-old joins an impressive list of past and present NBA players to buy into NBL teams that includes John Wall, Dante Exum, Shawn Marion, Zach Randolph, Josh Childress and Al Harrington.

Middleton is averaging 20.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.5 assists for a Milwaukee Bucks team currently sitting third in the Eastern Conference standings.
