The NBA offseason has been pretty successful so far following a disastrous end to the Milwaukee Bucks’ 2022-23 campaign, which ended with a first-round loss to the eventual Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat.
The two biggest priorities for the Bucks in the offseason were re-signing two of their best players in sharpshooter Khris Middleton and veteran center Brook Lopez.
Fortunately, the Bucks were able to accomplish those two goals, with both players now under contract moving forward, leaving their star trio with Giannis Antetokounmpo intact and the former poised to continue competing for a title.
In addition to bringing back Brook, Milwaukee added some depth to the frontcourt, with his brother Robin Lopez agreeing to a deal with the team on Monday, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Although Robin is nowhere near as capable as his brother, he certainly helps the team in a few different ways.
He’ll bring another big body in the paint and will obviously make Brooke a little happier on a day-to-day basis, which can only help the team and morale going forward.
Along with these additions, the team recently agreed to terms with Jae Crowder, further adding to the team’s depth.
It will be interesting to see if the Bucks can bounce back with a vengeance after their playoff embarrassment, as the team needs to capitalize each season with Antetokounmpo as the face of the franchise, or he could choose to move elsewhere. Is. near future.
