Bobby Portis, Wes Matthews re-join Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks has agreed with Bobby Portis to four-year contract worth $49M, multiple media outlets report. Portis wanted to get paid, so he opted out of his $4.6 million player option with the intent of re-signing.

He obviously outplayed his contract the last two seasons and help the Bucks to their first championship in 50 years. Portis averaged 14.6 points and 9.1 rebounds a game last season, starting 59 games due to Brook Lopez being injured.

In other moves, the Bucks are bringing back Wesley Matthews and Jevon Carter. Matthews saw his minutes go up late in the season, and he started games in the playoffs. Carter signed a two-year deal to return to the Bucks.

Joe Ingles is joining forces with Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks on a one-year deal, according to his representatives at Priority Sports. Ingles, 34, was most recently with the Portland Trail Blazers, but he never played a game with the team.

He spent his entire NBA career with the Utah Jazz before he was traded to the Trail Blazers a week after tearing his ACL during the 2021-22 season. In eight seasons with Utah, Ingles averaged 8.6 points, 3.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds.

The $6.5 million salary for Ingles indicates he’ll be getting the team’s taxpayer mid-level exception. Carter’s deal will be worth $4.6MM over two years, with a player option on year two, reports Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.
