The Bucks and Middleton came to agreement early Wednesday, a few hours after the free agent market opened. The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced. ESPN first reported the agreement.
Analysis: Middleton's breakout was one of the main factors in the Bucks becoming one of the surprise teams in the league last year. He averaged 13.4 points and shot 40 percent from 3-point range in his third season. Middleton was a second-round pick of Detroit in 2012. He has blossomed into a versatile and important small forward for the Bucks.
