The Milwaukee Bucks plan to re-sign all-star swingman Khris Middleton to a five-year, $178-million contract, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting.

The deal will reportedly include a player option on the final year of the deal.

Middleton is a former second-round pick of the Detroit Pistons who was traded to Milwaukee Bucks after his rookie season in the summer of 2013.

Since then he’s turned himself into one of the premier three-and-D players in the league, earning an all-star nod for the first time this past season while averaging 18.3 points per game on 37.8 per cent shooting from deep.

He re-joins a Bucks team that finished with the best regular-season record in the NBA, winning 60 games.
