Brogdon will sign a four-year, $85 million contract with the Pacers as part of a sign-and-trade with Milwaukee, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The price was apparently too high for Milwaukee, which will essentially facilitate Brogdon's move to a division rival. For their trouble, the Bucks will receive a first-round pick and two second-rounders, but it's still a significant loss for the best regular season team in the league last season. In Indiana, Brogdon will likely slot in as the starting point guard from Day 1 following the surprise retirement of Darren Collison.
Brogdon is officially a restricted free agent after being extended a qualifying offer by the Bucks, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Brogdon played a vital role as the Bucks delivered the best record in the NBA this season, averaging 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 28.6 minutes over 64 games. The 26-year-old shot 50.5 percent from the field, 42.6 percent from three and 92.8 percent from the free-throw line and is expected to garner plenty of interest as a restricted free agent.
Brogdon tallied 18 points (8-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 11 rebounds, six assists, and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 loss to Toronto.
Brogdon moved into the starting lineup Thursday, replacing Nikola Mirotic who has been struggling of late. Brogdon was arguably the best player for the Bucks, ending with 18 points and 11 rebounds in 34 minutes. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough as the Bucks lost their third straight game, now only one loss away from elimination. Game 6 will be in Toronto on Saturday and Brogdon will almost certainly remain in the starting lineup for that one.
Brogdon will start at shooting guard in Thursday's Game 5 against Toronto, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Brogdon hasn't started since injuring his foot in March, but had been the teams starting shooting guard for the entire season up to that point. He'll replace Nikola Mirotic, who has started the first-four games of the series, as the Bucks look to reclaim the series lead.
Brogdon totaled four points (2-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds and three assists over 28 minutes in the Bucks' loss to the Raptors on Tuesday.
Brogdon came up small with just four points on a very cold shooting night. His final stat line was dismal, especially considering his recent streak of productive outings. In four prior games leading up to Game 4, Brogdon averaged 14.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists. He's put up quality stat lines in 26.5 minutes per game, so he's likely to bounce back in Thursday's Game 5 in Milwaukee.
Brogdon is expected to continue to come off the bench in the Eastern Conference Finals, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.
Brogdon has been arguably the Bucks' most consistent performer since returning from injury for Game 5 against the Celtics. He's reached double-digits off the bench in each of the last four games, including going for 20 points and five rebounds in Sunday's Game 3 loss in Toronto. While Brogdon would provide added stability to a starting five that includes Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe -- both of whom had horrific offensive games Sunday -- coach Mike Budenholzer intimated Monday that he likes the firepower Brogdon brings to Milwaukee's second unit. Heading into Tuesday's Game 4, all indications are that Budenholzer will stick with the same starting five he's employed since Game 2 of the Celtics series.
Brogdon ended with 20 points (8-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 37 minutes during Sunday's 118-112 loss to Toronto.
Brogdon played 37 minutes in Sunday's double-overtime loss, continuing to increase his workload after recently returning from a long-term foot injury. Both he and George Hill provided plenty of spark off the bench, almost helping the Bucks to an improbable victory. Despite coming off the bench, Brogdon typically features heavily in the Bucks late-game antics and should once again find himself with a sizeable role come Game 4 on Tuesday.
Brogdon totaled 14 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds, and one steal in 25 minutes during Friday's 125-103 victory over the Raptors.
Brogdon, playing in just his third game since returning from injury, continues to produce for the Bucks despite coming off the bench. It remains unclear as to whether he will eventually move back into the starting lineup, although given their current state of play, he could remain on the bench at least for the foreseeable future. He certainly adds another dimension to the Bucks on both ends of the floor and their depth right now is unquestionably the best remaining in the playoffs.
Brogdon totaled 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and three assists across 25 minutes in the Bucks' win over the Raptors on Wednesday.
Brogdon came off the bench once again, but he provided quality minutes, leading the second unit with 15 points. He appears healthy enough to play more minutes and enter the starting lineup, but with the Bucks humming, he'll likely retain his bench role and lead a deep bench.
Brogdon will remain in a bench role for Game 1 against the Raptors, TNT's Kristen Ledlow reports.
Brogdon made his return in Game 5 against Boston after a month-long layoff, and while he looked good in 17 minutes of action -- scoring 10 points to go with four assists -- the Bucks will ease him into a larger role. Coach Mike Budenholzer said Brogdon will get a "bump in minutes" for Game 1, but he noted that the team is aiming to bring him back in a "logical and sensible way." Brogdon, himself, appears to be embracing his new role, however temporary it may be. "It's fun," Brogdon said. "We play a different style of basketball without so many juggernauts in the second unit. We move the ball and serve as a spark plug."
Coach Mike Budenholzer said Sunday that he plans to have Brogdon play more minutes Wednesday in Game 1 of the Bucks' Eastern Conference Finals series, Charles Gardner of The Associated Press reports.
Brogdon played 17 minutes off the bench in the series-clinching victory against the Celtics and looked terrific, scoring 10 points and dishing out four assists. With Brogdon now having some additional time to practice as the Bucks await the victor of the 76ers-Raptors series, he should be ready to handle an increased role. Whether that means he will be starting or not, however, is yet to be determined.
Brogdon totaled 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds and a block across 17 minutes in the Bucks' series-clinching win over the Celtics on Wednesday.
Brogdon (foot) took the floor for the first time since Mar. 15, making mild contributions in just 17 minutes off the bench. He was in at the end of the game with the Bucks handily in control, likely to get some play time after nearly two months. His minutes will steadily increase in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Brogdon (foot) is slated to play in Wednesday's Game 5, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.
Brogdon, who's returning from a 21 game absence due to a plantar fascia tear, will play in "short spurts" Wednesday according to coach Mike Budenholzer. Clearly, Brogdon's minutes will be limited, although the extent to which they will be is currently unknown. Sterling Brown, Pat Connaughton and George Hill will likely see fewer minutes with Brogdon returning.
Brogdon (foot) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Celtics, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports. Assuming Brogdon plays, he will be on a minutes restriction and would come off the bench, per Andrews.
He hasn't officially been cleared, but the fact that Brogdon is expected to play is big news. He's been out since March 15 due to a plantar fascia tear, prompting Sterling Brown, George Hill and Pat Connaughton to see extra minutes. The Bucks are expected to be cautious with Brogdon in his first game back, so, from a fantasy perspective, it still might be best to avoid him.
Brogdon (foot) was ruled out for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Celtics, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
Brogdon advanced to full contact practices over the weekend but Milwaukee will remain cautious with his potential return and a 3-1 series lead. The 26-year-old should return to a day-to-day outlook for Friday's Game 6, should the game be necessary.
Brogdon (foot) will remain out for Monday's Game 4 against Boston, Matt Velazquez of the Journal Sentinel reports.
Brogdon was able to go through full contact practices over the last several days, but the Bucks will continue to be cautious and hold him out as they look to take a 3-1 series lead. Consider Brogdon day-to-day in advance of Wednesday's Game 5.
Head coach Mike Budenholzer was unable to update Brogdon's status for Game 4 against the Celtics, but did state there have been no setbacks in his recovery, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
Brogdon is working out with the team Saturday, and he appears as close as ever to a return. Still, the Bucks are unlikely to steer from their course of caution until he is fully ready. The former Rookie of the Year has been sidelined since March 17, so he will presumably not be taking on a full workload right away once he does return.
Brogdon (foot) is out for Friday's Game 3 against the Celtics, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
While there are indications that Brogdon is progressing well, he will need some more time to recover before playing in a game. His next opportunity to play arrives Monday, giving him some more time off. In the meantime, Sterling Brown should continue seeing an expanded role.
Coach Mike Budenholzer was non-committal when asked about Brogdon's (foot) availability for Friday's Game 3 against the Celtics, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports. A determination may be made following Thursday's workout. Teammate Sterling Brown noted that Brogdon "looked great" this week.
More information might emerge later Thursday, but it seems within the realm of possibility that Brogdon makes his return for Game 3. Out since March 17, Brogdon may have to be eased back into action, whenever that day comes. He'll be a welcome addition back to the Bucks' rotation, as Sterling Brown has struggled in Brogdon's absence.
Brogdon (foot) went through a strenuous practice Monday but remains out for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Celtics, Malika Andrews of ESPN reports.
Coach Mike Budenholzer sounded encouraged with Brogdon's progress, as he said the guard practiced "longer and harder" Monday than he has in recent days. The Virginia product is "starting to look like the Malcolm we know," according to Budenholzer, and the hope is that he could be back in the mix as soon as Friday's Game 3 in Boston.
