Bucks To Keep Pat Connaughton, Sterling Brown Past Guarantee Date

The Bucks plan on keeping Pat Connaughton and Sterling Brown on the roster through July 1 when each players’ contracts will become guaranteed, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports (Twitter link).

Connaughton will make slightly over $1.72MM while Brown will receive just under $1.62MM next season. Neither player’s contract runs past this upcoming season.

Milwaukee could have waived either player today and given themselves some minor cap relief. However, the franchise had no need for the additional cap room after re-signing both Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez earlier today.

Connaughton and Brown project to be low-cost rotation players next season before they reach the open market in 2020. Connaughton will be an unrestricted free agent next summer, while Brown can be restricted.

    Their roles could increase without Brogdon or Snell there ahead of them. I would also assume Divincienzo will have a chance at an increased role, with Brogdon gone

    If they announce Conotn as starter & leave him there so he can relax, he could be something. Leave Middltn at forward.

  3. Connaughton is a major bargain at 1.7M!!! Kid was money in the playoffs!
