LAS VEGAS — What a year it’s been for Milwaukee Bucks star Khris Middleton. It dates back to last August when he was invited to participate in USA Basketball training camp alongside some of the best players in the game. Then Middleton went on to post a career-high in both assists (4.3) and rebounds (6.0) while scoring 18.3 points (he also made a career-best 179 3-pointers) in 31.1 minutes per game during the 2018-19 season. Middleton’s play earned him a trip to Charlotte for his first career All-Star selection, just hours away from his hometown of Charleston, S.C.

To top off the forward’s successful season, Middleton received a handsome five-year, $178 million contract from Milwaukee during the first few days of free agency.
