Portis has non-bird rights in Milwaukee
The most Milwaukee can offer is:
1. $4.3M (non-bird rights- 120% off his 2020-21 $)
2. $5.9M tax ML https://t.co/ZdzbzAYooq

Portis averaged 11.4 points and 7.1 rebounds per game last season. He became a fan favorite for his energy and attitude, which included some tough-guy behavior.
It’s easy to envision him receiving much more lucrative contract offers in free agency, which would likely cause the Bucks to lose him a month after winning the championship. Portis has made more than $32 million during his playing career, including over $14 million in 2019-2020 with the Knicks.
