Bobby Portis To Stay In Milwaukee; Tucker To Miami

By Adam Roberts – 8/2/2021

There very well could be more chants of “Bobby, Bobby, Bobby” at Fiserv Forum next season coming from Milwaukee Bucks fans. Meanwhile, one of the team’s biggest defensive pieces during their postseason run is off to Miami.

As part of the whirlwind of deals this afternoon and evening around the beginning of NBA free agency, Bobby Portis has agreed to a 2-year, 9 million dollar deal with a second year player option to stay in Milwaukee. Conversely, P.J. Tucker agreed to a 2-year, 15 million dollar deal to join Jimmy Butler and the buildup of free agents the Heat are putting together.

Portis and Tucker were the two biggest question marks for the Bucks this offseason, and on day one of free agency their fates have been sealed.
