Milwaukee Bucks Rumors: Center Wants to Stay Put

While speaking with Michael Scotto of Hoops Hype, Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez said that he loves the organization and that he "can't imagine being anywhere else."

With this comment to Scotto, it is clear that Lopez is very open to returning to the Bucks next season and onward. The Bucks would certainly love to bring him back as well, as he was one of their top players during the 2022-23 season. In 78 games played, the 7-foot center averaged 15.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per contest. Overall, it was another strong season from the 15-year veteran.

It will be intriguing to see if the Bucks and Lopez can come to terms on a new contract from here. It is a move that would benefit both parties and given the fact that there is mutual interest, it would not be surprising in the slightest if he stays put.
