Middleton shot the 3-ball exceptionally well last season — at a 43 percent clip in 29 regular-season games — but he also took a meager 3.6 treys a game. I asked Middleton if he would crank up that average this season. “If it’s there, I’m going to take it,’’ Middleton said. “I’m not going to force up bad shots. I’ve been working on catch-and-shoot and shooting 3s off the dribble. That’s something I’ve been working on for a while. “So, if the opportunity presents itself, then I’m going to do it.’’ When I asked him if Kidd has encouraged him during training camp to shoot more 3s this season, Middleton’s response didn’t seem to indicate that was the case. “Well, I mean, he just tells me to be aggressive,’’ Middleton said. “He knows I’m going to shoot when I’m open, shoot when I need to and make plays when I need to.
The Milwaukee Bucks have repeatedly been included in trade rumors surrounding Irving, with rookie of the year Malcolm Brogdon and guard Khris Middleton often mentioned in the potential offers. However, according to a league source who spoke with the Journal Sentinel on Wednesday, there is “nothing” to these reports. In fact, the source says there have not even been conversations between the Bucks and Cavaliers.
Storyline: Khris Middleton Trade?
LeBron needs a second star to soak up some of the creative burden. Any superstar who wants to play in June needs that. Derrick Rose is not the answer. The Milwaukee Bucks lurk on the fringes of the Irving bidding with an offer centered around Malcolm Brogdon, the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year, and Khris Middleton, sources say. The Bucks have not yet put a first-round pick on the table, sources say, but the bet here is that they would to get the deal done — or if Irving showed any interest in staying in Milwaukee long-term.
