The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a two-year deal with former Trail Blazers reserve Pat Connaughton. According to Yahoo Sports’ NBA Insider Shams Charania, the deal is worth just over the league minimum for the next two seasons.

Connaughton arrived in Portland on the night of the 2015 NBA Draft. The Blazers acquired the former Notre Dame standout with Mason Plumlee from the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for the draft rights to Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.

2017-18 served as a breakout year for Connaughton. After being lightly used in his first two seasons, the Massachusetts native averaged 18.1 minutes per game.

Connaughton will join former Blazers Ed Davis, Shabazz Napier, and Noah Vonleh in the Eastern Conference next season.
