The Bucks will be Portis’ fourth team since joining the league out of Arkansas in 2015. He was waived by the Knicks on Thursday, taking only three days to find a new team.
In 66 games, Portis averaged 10.1 points and 5.1 rebounds during the 2019-2020 season. He was not eligible to play in the NBA bubble in Orlando, due to the Knicks not qualifying. His best scoring season came in 2018-2019, when he scored 14.3 points a game.
The Bucks, a contender in the East, hope Portis can reach that high again.
