News before the Milwaukee Bucks win Tuesday night was that the Dallas Mavericks were going to go after to-be free agent Khris Middleton in the off-season.
The 27-year-old shooting guard has one year left on his contract but he will opt out barring some unforeseen circumstance.
Dallas could have $45 million to spend in free agency and owner Mark Cuban doesn’t shy away from going all-in on players.
According to Marc Stein with the New York Times, Dallas is interested in Middleton and Charlotte Hornets’ guard Kemba Walker.
After the Bucks blew out the Boston Celtics 123-102 in Game 2, anyone could see why Dallas would want Middleton.
He finished with 28 points, going 7-for-10 from beyond the arc, as the Bucks set a franchise playoff-high for 3-pointers made, going 20-for-47.
Game 3 in Boston is set for 6:30 p.m. Friday on WKTY 96.7 FM / 580 AM.
