Bryn Forbes could be a target for the Milwaukee Bucks in NBA free agency

Bryn Forbes is a name that all fans of the Milwaukee Bucks should remember, given that he was a key role player on their most recent title-winning team. Forbes ultimately left Milwaukee following the title run and split this past season playing for the San Antonio Spurs and the Denver Nuggets. Now, the sharpshooting two guard is set to test unrestricted free agency, and there has been buzz among the fanbase regarding a potential reunion between Forbes and the Bucks.

Given his prolific outside shooting, the appeal with Forbes is there from Milwaukee’s point of view. The 28-year-old has shot 41.3 percent from 3-point land throughout his career, which included an impressive 45.2 percent shooting season during his time in Milwaukee, which was a career-high. It is not a coincidence that Forbes boasted the best 3-point shooting percentage of his career during his lone season in Milwaukee, given the role he was playing. The Bucks frequently used Forbes in lineups that featured Giannis Antetokounmpo to better space the floor for the Greek Freak. Forbes thrived in the role, and there is no doubt that he could do it once again. While adding Forbes would not do much to help strengthen Milwaukee’s defense, the thought of bringing back a sensational long distance shooter is quite enticing.

As Forbes prepares to enter free agency for the third consecutive offseason, it is unclear what he may seek financially. The guard has shown a willingness to take team-friendly deals during the last two offseasons, so perhaps he would do it once again, especially if it meant he could sign with a team he won a championship with. Familiarity could be a crucial factor here as Forbes is already experienced with how the team likes to do things and has played alongside several core pieces of the roster. The chance to compete for another title could be compelling for Forbes, and maybe he would consider taking a team-friendly deal to make it happen.
