Free agents Bobby Portis, D.J. Augustin reach deals with Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have reached deals with free-agent forward Bobby Portis and guard D.J. Augustin on Saturday.

Portis agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million deal with the Bucks, agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Milwaukee, meanwhile, also reached a three-year, $21 million deal with Augustin, sources told Wojnarowski.

Portis’ deal includes a player option for the second year.

He became a free agent when the New York Knicks declined the $15.75 million team option for the 2020-21 season. He had signed with the Knicks as a free agent in June 2019 and averaged 10.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 66 games in his lone season in New York.

Portis has also played for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards during his five NBA seasons, averaging 10.2 points and 5.9 rebounds for his career.

Augustin found a home in Orlando the past four seasons, averaging 10.5 points and 4.6 assists per game for the Magic last season while seeing regular time running the point.

He is coming off a season in which both his field goal percentage (39.9) and 3-point percentage (34.8) took significant dips. And he has logged a lot of miles since being the ninth overall pick in the 2008 draft, averaging 72 games across his 12 NBA seasons.

Augustin, who turned 33 in November, can provide a veteran scoring presence off the bench.
