Middleton made his first All-Star Game this season and was a free agent, resulting in a large contract. The 27-year-old has spent six of his seven years in the NBA with the Bucks.
He averages 15.7 points per game in his career, but this season upped his game to 18.3 points per game.
With Brook Lopez and Middleton now signed back for the Bucks, they can support star player Giannis Antetokounmpo. They got the number one seed in the Eastern Conference this year and next year will be trying to break through to the NBA Finals.
