Quite the opposite from a “Show me the money” showboat, (Kris) Middleton is soft-spoken and humble. He is more likely to hit a cliché trifecta than ruffle management. He says he “definitely” wants to stay with the upstart Bucks, preferring to keep low while agent Michael Lindeman of New York-based Excel Sports Management handles the free agent circus that starts July 1.

“We have a lot of great pieces with the Bucks,” Middleton said Friday. “If we can stay together, we can do something special.”

What leverage. Middleton was the best player on a Milwaukee team that improved from 15-67 to 41-41 and the playoffs under new head coach Jason Kidd. The Bucks want to keep him on a young roster that includes Jabari Parker, Michael Carter-Williams and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
