California native Brook Lopez is returning to the land of cheese next season.
According to reports, Lopez is set to return to the Milwaukee Bucks on a two-year, $48 million deal. Brooks was the second member of the Bucks 2021 Championship team to return, following the news of Khris Middleton re-signing with Milwaukee.
Both Brooks and Middleton were rumored to have interest from the Sacramento Kings.
