Plumlee is coming off a season in Milwaukee where he appeared in 61 games, starting 14, and averaged 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds over 14.3 minutes. The deal may indicate that the Bucks are going to continue to look to move center Greg Monroe via trade, in which case Plumlee would see an elevated role either as a starting center or the backup behind John Henson. Should Milwaukee elect to keep Monroe, however, Plumlee's role in the Bucks' rotation will likely remain minimal barring any serious injuries.
Plumlee was extended a qualifying offer from the Bucks on Tuesday, making him a restricted free agent, C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Plumlee will be able to receive an offer from any team on the open free agent market, but the Bucks will still have the opportunity to match those offers due to his status as a restricted free agent. Plumlee participated in 61 games, including 14 starts, for the Bucks this past season and posted averages of 5.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.8 blocks over 14 minutes. With rumors swirling around the Bucks about potentially trading Greg Monroe, Plumlee could see an elevated role with the Bucks, however, with the salary cap on the rise, a team may offer him a salary that the Bucks are unwilling to match.
Miles Plumlee will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Sixers, Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Greg Monroe is getting the night off for rest, so Plumlee is expected to move into the starting lineup in his place. Plumlee is averaging 9.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 0.4 blocks over 19 minutes during his last five games, but could see his production across the board rise with extra playing time available.
Miles Plumlee posted 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, three steals, and one assist in 20 minutes during the Milwaukee Bucks ' 124-109 loss to the Celtics on Friday.
Plumlee has seen 20 minutes or more in three straight games while scoring in double figures during three of the last four. After averaging 6.9 points and 4.7 rebounds in 19 minutes per appearance in March, Plumlee is managing 11 points and 5.5 rebounds in 20 minutes through the first four bouts of April. Even still, with the Bucks being eliminated from playoff contention, coach Jason Kidd might opt to mix things up over the final three games of 2015-16.
Miles Plumlee provided 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 24 minutes during the Milwaukee Bucks ' 114-108 win versus the Heat on Wednesday.
Plumlee committed three fouls and three turnovers, but played more minutes than starter Greg Monroe. Plumlee actually saw more minutes off the bench than he had been in most games as a starter lately, but John Henson (back) could be ready to return to the lineup soon and steal away some of Plumlee's playing time. Through five March games, Plumlee is averaging 8.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in 19 minutes per matchup.
