The Milwaukee Bucks have contracts with free agent striker Bobby Portis and security guard D.J. Augustine on Saturday.
Portis has agreed to a $ 7.5 million two-year deal that includes a player option for the second year, Priority Sports agent Mark Bartelstein told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Augustin has signed a three-year $ 21 million deal with the Bucks, sources told ESPN.
Plus, Pat Connaughton, the guardian of the free agents, returns on a deal that is taking longer than initially thought. After agents Jeff Schwartz and Jordan Gertler of Excel Sports Management agreed to a two-year contract for $ 8.3 million on Friday evening, they told ESPN on Saturday that the contract had been revamped to $ 16 million for three years.
Portis became a free agent when the New York Knicks turned down the $ 15.75 million team option for the 2020-21 season. He signed with the Knicks as a free agent in June 2019 and averaged 10.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 66 games in his lonely season in New York.
Portis has also played for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards during his five NBA seasons, averaging 10.2 points and 5.9 rebounds for his career.
Augustin has made a home in Orlando for the past four seasons, averaging 10.5 points and 4.6 assists per game for the Magic last season while watching regular time.
He's had a season where both his field goal percentage (39.9) and his 3-point percentage (34.8) fell significantly. And he has come many miles since he was ninth overall in the 2008 draft, averaging 72 games over his 12 NBA seasons.
Augustin, who turned 33 in November, can offer an experienced scorer presence from the bench.
Free Agent Guard Jaylen Adams also agreed to a two-way deal with the Bucks on Saturday, his agents told ESPN.
