Bryn Forbes, who is a former Michigan State Spartan, is coming off a four-year tenure with the San Antonio Spurs where he first landed an opportunity as an undrafted rookie. His most recent stint saw him generate averages of 11.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.7 assists through 63 appearances serving primarily as a regular starter of the team. He shot 41.7 percent shooting from the field and a 38.8 percent clip from beyond the arc in the 2019-2020 season for the Spurs.
According to Wojnarowski, Bryn Forbes’ newly-inked two-year contract will reportedly have a player option in the second season of the deal. He will aim to bring his shot-making abilities for the Bucks who also recently saw veteran shooting guard Wesley Matthews pack his bags and head to the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency.
