The Indiana Pacers have acquired guard Malcolm Brogdon from the Milwaukee Bucks and plan to sign him to a four-year, $85-million contract, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting.

Coming back Milwaukee’s way will be a first-round pick and a couple of future second-round picks.

Brogon was a restricted free agent, so it would seem the offer Indiana was coming down with was outside of the Bucks’ comfort level, leading to both sides agreeing to a sign-and-trade.

Brogdon was the 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year despite being a second-round pick. The 26-year-old enjoyed a career-year last season with Milwaukee, averaging 15.6 points per game and became just the eighth player to have a 50-40-90 season, shooting 50.5 per cent from the field, 42.6 per cent from three-point range and 92.8 per cent from the free-throw line.
