    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Michael Scotto of The Athletic is reporting that Wesley Matthews' deal with the Bucks is for two years and $5.3 million, with a player option on the second season.

    Matthews was initially reported to be heading to Milwaukee on a one-year deal for the minimum, and that may still essentially be the case given the likelihood that Matthews opts out if he has a strong season. Either way, it's a nice piece of business for the Bucks, who get a 3-and-D wing player at a very affordable price. Matthews is shaping up as a low-end source of threes and steals, as he typically does.

  • Pau Gasol

    The Detroit Pistons have expressed interest in Pau Gasol according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.

    Gasol recently celebrated his 39th birthday and is recovering from left foot surgery to repair a stress fracture. It's really tough to imagine him playing productive minutes in any scenario at this point in his career, but he still may have value to a team with his leadership and sheer size alone. The Pistons only have two backup big-men on the roster in Markieff Morris and Thon Maker, so they are likely to make a move to address that depth issue before training camp.

    Bonzie Colson scored 14 points on 6-for-10 shooting, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in Friday night's loss to the Blazers.

    Colson has consistently been the best player for the summer Bucks, which is exactly what you'd hope to see from someone with even limited NBA experience. Unless the Bucks deal with injuries Colson will stick to the bench for the most part again next season.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks have officially announced the re-signing of Khris Middleton.

    Middleton quickly agreed to a five-year, $178 million deal to stay in Milwaukee, where he'll look to help the team get over the hump in an Eastern Conference that looks wide open. He struggled to adjust to coach Bud last season and found himself losing out on statistical production in a new role, so the hope is that he can rebound and reestablish himself as a top-35 fantasy option once again.

  • George Hill

    The Bucks have officially re-signed George Hill.

    Milwaukee waived Hill to get out of an onerous salary but re-upped him for three years and $29 million. He'll be looking at some extra minutes with the departure of Malcolm Brogdon and will look to keep his momentum from a strong playoff run. There probably won't be enough here for 12-team leagues, but Hill is on the board in deeper formats as a nice fit in the Bucks' system.

    The Bucks have waived F Jon Leuer on Tuesday.

    This wasn't out of nowhere Bucks GM Jon Horst said a few weeks back that Leuer may not stay with the Bucks. Leuer hasn't produced much of anything the past few seasons and he'll again be looking at a deep-reserve role if he signs with another team.

  • Thanasis Antetokounmpo
    F, Milwaukee Bucks

    Thanasis Antetokounmpo has agreed to a two-year deal with the Bucks.

    It is expected to be a fully-guaranteed deal for the veteran's minimum. Giannis' older brother has two NBA games under his belt, both with the Knicks back in the 2015-16 season. He's since been playing in Spain and Greece. The elder Antetokounmpo does not figure to be much of a factor in the rotation.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks announced their re-signing of Brook Lopez on Saturday.

    Lopez was a wonderful fit in Milwaukee last season and should continue to provide strong fantasy output for the rest of his tenure with the Bucks. Odds are he won't be coming as cheaply in drafts this season, but Lopez should easily be a middle-round player with comfortable top-40 upside.

  • Bonzie Colson
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Bonzie Colson delivered 18 points in 21 minutes in Saturday's 89-83 win over the Hawks at Summer League.

    Colson shot 6-of-11 and hit three 3-pointers. He was a DFS darling over the final days of last season since the Bucks ran a skeleton crew and has been Milwaukee's top player through two games in Vegas so far. He's not likely to play much when the regular season begins but more strong games like this wouldn't hurt.

  • Jock Landale
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Jock Landale led the Bucks with 25 points in Friday's Summer League loss, rounding out his line with 10 rebounds, a steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    The 6'11" Landale, who's been playing with Zalgiris in Lithuania, went 6-of-13 from the field and a perfect 10-of-10 from the charity stripe. He spent last Summer League with the Hawks and looks to have added some range to his game — he went 3-of-8 from deep today after attempting only 29 triples in four years at St. Mary's.

  • Pau Gasol
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Pau Gasol would like to continue his NBA career and says that he's recovering well from left foot surgery.

    Gasol underwent surgery in May to repair a navicular stress fracture in his left foot, after missing time with the Spurs earlier in the season because of a stress fracture in the same foot. Gasol is unlikely to be an on-court asset at this point in his career but a team should find him valuable on a minimum contract.

  • Wesley Matthews
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Wesley Matthews has agreed to a one-year, minimum deal with the Bucks.

    Matthews, who played his college ball at Marquette, will latch onto a contender. He could very well start at shooting guard for the Bucks and is a nice fit as an affordable, experienced 3-and-D option. He'll offer low-end fantasy appeal as a source of threes and steals, as usual.

  • Robin Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    According to Chris Haynes, Robin Lopez has reached an agreement on a deal with the Bucks.

    Ro-Lo joins his brother Bro-Lo (Brook Lopez) in what should be an interesting frontcourt pairing/rotation. The deal is reportedly for two years at the full room exception with the second year being a player option.

  • Robin Lopez
    C, Chicago Bulls

    The Bucks are expressing interest in signing Robin Lopez, per Shams Charania.

    The world needs the Lopez brothers on the same team as the entertainment factor would be off the charts. Robin has been connected to the Knicks already, though there should be a number of teams that get in on the bidding here. His days as a standard-league fantasy asset are likely over but Lopez is a steady, veteran hand who would provide excellent frontcourt depth for any roster.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, George Hill will be returning to the Bucks this season after both parties agree on a three-year, $29 million deal.

    This is a solid payday for the 10-year vet. It makes sense that the Bucks locked him down, now that Malcolm Brogdon is headed to the Pacers. Hill should remain a fantasy late-round plodder who battles bouts of inconsistency from week to week.
