The pros of the Milwaukee Bucks bringing back Bryn Forbes in free agency

Forbes is an absolute stud from the outside. With a career three-point percentage of 41.3 percent, Forbes gives the Bucks a sharpshooter.

Forbes brings experience in Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer’s system, a system that he thrived in. In his season with the Bucks, Forbes compiled a career-high percentage of 45.2 percent from three, which was good enough for 4th in the NBA during that season, per

Forbes was one of those guys that fit the role of perimeter shooters to space the floor around Giannis Antetokounmpo. When shooting off of an Antetokounmpo pass, Forbes composing a three-point percentage of 42.9 percent.

Forbes was fantastic in catch-and-shoot situations when he was in Milwaukee, putting together a three-point percentage of 46.3 percent. A player that can thrive in catch-and-shoot situations would’ve been huge for the Bucks to have during their postseason run. The Bucks ranked 11th among the 16 playoff teams in three-point percentage at 32.7 percent, and may have been able to get over the hump against Boston with a few more makes.

Additionally, adding Forbes would put the team one step closer to ridding of Hill. Hill basically was out there running around in circles in the playoff series against Boston. He only averaged 1 point per game and of all of the games he played in the series, he recorded a negative +/- in every single one. Even though Forbes wouldn’t exactly be a defensive upgrade over Hill, the shots that he’d be able to make on the perimeter would at least be an upgrade over the nothing that the team got out of Hill in the Boston series.
