With free agency now just a matter of days away, will any of the Milwaukee Bucks outgoing free agents be back next season?
The rumors of reported interest in free agents may have kicked into action on Sunday for the Milwaukee Bucks, but away from potential incomings, there’ll be some major decisions to be made in the outgoings department for the team this summer too.
Superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is under contract, and the likes of Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe don’t have to worry about free agency for 12 more months, but there are four players who finished the season on Milwaukee’s roster who could well be preparing for next season in a new city.
At the top end, that group is headlined by Jabari Parker, and a situation that is incredibly difficult to gauge.

Parker has immense talent, but questions over focus, consistency, fit, attitude and, most significantly, health, will all factor into the thinking of the Bucks or any other franchise interested in his services.
Beyond that, the Bucks also have a group of veterans who could be moving on. Most notably, there’s Jason Terry, who has spent the past two seasons in Milwaukee, while at the back end of the roster there’s Shabazz Muhammad and Brandon Jennings, who both joined the team late in the season.
Will all of those players return next season? The answer is almost certainly not. Will any of them ever suit up for the Bucks again? The fact is even that is by no means clear.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the individual cases involved and the likelihood of them playing for Milwaukee next season.
