Bucks: Miles Plumlee agrees to four-year deal worth as much as $52 million

The Milwaukee Bucks have come to terms with restricted free agent center Miles Plumlee.

Plumlee, 27, has agreed to a deal worth four years and $52 million, according to multiple reports. He spent the last two seasons with Milwaukee and has averaged 4.7 points in just 13 minutes during his time with the Bucks.

The 6-foot-11 center out of Duke took a newfound role with Bucks during the 2015-16 season after playing in just 19 games and averaging under 10 minutes per contest in his first season with the team. Following the All-Star break, a switch in the line up by head coach Jason Kidd moved Plumlee to the starting lineup and Greg Monroe onto the bench. Although finishing the year with less-than-outstanding numbers at an average of 5.6 points and 5.3 rebounds, he ended the year in the top 25 of most efficient centers in the NBA (Hollinger), putting up 13 points and 10 rebounds per 36 minutes of play.

Re-signing Plumlee has the Bucks spending around $42 million on three of their big men for just the upcoming season alone.

Recent trade rumors have surrounded Monroe the past couple of weeks and the move to bring back Plumlee may mean Monroe could be heading elsewhere.
