Joe Ingles lands in Milwaukee for a year and $6.5 million

After a season spent between Salt Lake City and Portland treating his cruciate ligament injury, Joe Ingles will be back in the fall. But this time he will wear the jersey of the Bucks, who offered him a one-season deal at $ 6.5 million. Milwaukee completes its second unit with a good veteran of the League while Ingles will find the floors in an ambitious team.

At the end of January, we left Joe Ingles with a bad image, that of his cruciate ligament injury. After an already complicated first few months in 2021-2022 (7.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists at 40% shooting, including 34% at 3-points), the Kangaroo was already seeing its season end. This beginning of the year 2022 will definitely be a bad period, since the Jazz will then “take advantage” of the situation to get rid of their player by sending him to Portland, a franchise of which he has not suddenly carried the blow shirt last season. And move very business from a franchise for which the strange bird had given himself body and soul for eight seasons. At 34 years old, Joseph found himself officially on the free agent market that night, never a simple situation, but the guy obviously managed it well since he found a new contract just barely the opening of the Free Agency launched.

It was therefore the Bucks who drew their mid-level exception of 6.5 million dollars over one season to try to revive and beer drinker respected veteran of this League. The Wisconsin franchise takes the opportunity to strengthen its second unit with a good guy, who will do the job when he gets off the bench while waiting for the starters have finished blowing. Also renowned for his open mouth on the court, Joe will surely still delight us on this side, and for the first time since his arrival in the NBA in 2014, the Australian will evolve in a team that is seriously claiming the title. With the signing of Ingles, the Daims also continue their fine start to Free Agency since in addition to the winger looking like a bar pillar, they have chained the moves smart tonight. Here, we obviously think of the re-signing of Bobby Portis for 4 years and 49 million euros, but also of the one-year contract extension offered to Wes Matthews or the deal concluded with Jevon Carter for two seasons. which are also good shots. With these guys, we can say that the bench of Milwaukee will have the mouth next season, a good news for the fans of the Fiserv Forum, a little less for those of the rest of the League.

With this signing in Wisconsin, Joe Ingles has a great opportunity to turn the page after his serious injury and his Jazz trade. The winger joins a very ambitious franchise, where a role off the bench awaits him which may well suit him. Between two dirty tricks to his opponents, the Joe may well show us that he is not finished by doing what is necessary to help his team go very far.
