Robin Lopez could be a free agent target for the Milwaukee Bucks

Robin Lopez has made the rounds across the league throughout his lengthy career, which included a brief stint with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2019-20. The big man, who is the twin brother of current Buck Brook Lopez, served as a solid backup to his brother. If the Bucks will attempt to bulk up their depth in the frontcourt this offseason, perhaps looking to bring Robin back would make sense.

The Bucks will face some uncertainty at the center position this offseason as both Bobby Portis and Serge Ibaka will be eligible for free agency. The odds of retaining both of them are slim, which could have the front office skimming the free agent market for another center to add some depth. While Robin is far from the flashiest player, he could be somewhat serviceable in a minimized role. Over the past four seasons, the center has been solid in a full-time backup role, having averaged 7.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, and an assist in 18.3 minutes per game. The center would provide some added interior protection and rebounding when his brother is off the floor, which could be helpful.

If the Bucks are looking to bulk up their center depth, Lopez would also likely be a low-cost target. The big man has taken smaller deals over the past several years, and it would be shocking to see him command anything lucrative this offseason. Perhaps the chance to reunite with his brother in an environment that he is already familiar with could be enticing, especially as that team could be in the thick of title contention once again next season.
