The latest Milwaukee Bucks Daily is here as it was announced Tuesday night that Bucks swingman Khris Middleton will take part in this year’s three-point shootout during All-Star Weekend in Charlotte.

In today’s edition of Milwaukee Bucks Daily, we learn that Khris Middleton will take part in his second three-point shootout at this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend in Charlotte, superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo tips his hand at his strategy ahead of Thursday night’s All-Star Draft, and much more.

On the heels of earning his first All-Star selection late last week, Middleton will look to put on a show at this year’s All-Star Saturday night less than two weeks from now. There’s no question the 27-year-old will carry some motivation as he’ll look to improve on the score (13) he recorded at his first three-point contest in Toronto nearly three years ago.
