Pat Connaughton has decided to exercise his $5.7 million player option for the 22-23 season with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Connaughton was widely expected to test free agency following another strong season with the Bucks. Connaughton will be eligible for a contract extension this offseason.

Connaughton re-signed with the Bucks on a three-year, $16 million contract during the 2020 season.
