Malcolm Brogdon Traded to Pacers; Expected to Sign $85 Million Contract
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Former UVa men's basketball star Malcolm Brogdon is being traded from the Milwaukee Bucks to the Indiana Pacers.
The Bucks will received a 2020 first-round draft pick, and consideration for two other future second-round picks, in exchange for Brogdon.
The 2016 NBA Rookie of the Year is expected to sign a 4-year, $85 million dollar contract with the Pacers.
Milwaukee re-signed Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez for a combined $231 million dollars at the start of NBA Free Agency on Sunday night, so luxury tax implications likely played a part in the deal.
Brogdon averaged 15.6 points per game for the Bucks last year.
He is one of just eight players in NBA history in the 50-40-90 club, which is better than 50-percent shooting from the field, 40-percent from three-point range, and 90-percent from the free throw line.
Brogdon recorded marks of .505/.426/.928 during the 2018-19 season.
Steve Nash (four times), Larry Bird (twice), Mark Price, Reggie Miller, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant, and Stephen Curry were the only other players to better 50-40-90 since the NBA introduced the three-point field goal in the 1979–80 season.
