Khris Middleton

The Milwaukee Bucks second-best player for the past couple of season has been Khris Middleton, there is simply no way around that fact. He defends and plays positions shooting guard through power forward, while still maintaining his scoring ability.

Middleton has a $13 million player option for next season, but is considered a likely candidate to decline that option and seek a bigger payday in a free agency market where many teams have cap space to spare.

Logging all 82 games last year, while playing an average of 36.4 minutes per game, Middleton was in the discussion as an All-Star. He doesn’t make flashy plays, fill the stadium with fans or even be known to the casual fan, but he does all the little things that help the team win.

Middleton also gives you the ability to space the floor, as he is a lifetime 39.2 percent on 3-pointers on nearly four attempts a game. He is definitely a free agent the Nets should look at to be the second or third scoring option on a winning team.
