The Bucks – with enough plausible deniability to claim other reasoning – have generally taken the cheap route this offseason.
But it helps when a solid player like Wesley Matthews is willing to sign for the minimum.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Milwaukee used all its cap space (and then some) to re-sign Brook Lopez and George Hill. The Bucks then committed their room exception to Robin Lopez. That left only a minimum salary for Matthews, who grew up in Wisconsin and played at Marquette.
Matthews might be one of the best signings this summer. Rotation-level wings rarely come this cheap. He might even start at shooting guard with Malcolm Brogdon departing.
