Khris Middleton scored 21.1 points and added 6.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 2.4 triples and 0.9 steals in 52 starts for the Bucks, good for 32/22 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
The career year comes after Milwaukee signed him to a five-year, $177 million dollar contract last summer. Middleton solidified his status as the No. 2 scoring option next to Giannis while shooting career-highs from the field (.499) and the 3-point line (.418). Coach Bud of course did not hesitate to yank him in games where he looked indifferent on the other side of the ball but the truth of the matter is that his perimeter shooting is essential to the success of the Bucks. The charismatic scorer surpassed his ADP and was a pleasant surprise for anyone who invested a pick for him in the early rounds of the draft.
