Luc Richard Mbah A Moute To Return To Milwaukee Bucks After Team Matches Nuggets Offer

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute will apparently return to the Milwaukee Bucks this season after testing the market for a quick minute as a restricted free agent. The Denver Nuggets submitted an offer sheet on Saturday afternoon, but reports indicate that the Bucks decided to match it shortly thereafter.

The Bucks will match the Nuggets offer sheet, reportedly to be worth just over $19 million for four seasonsaccording to Charles Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The defensive-minded forward was originally extended an offer of $1,091,100 to make him a restricted free agent, thus allowing the Bucks to match any offer being submitted to him by a rival NBA team.

Mbah a Moute is limited quite a bit as far as his offensive game is concerned, but he makes up for that on the defensive side of the ball. SB Nation's Tom Ziller still wasn't excited about his prospects on the open market, however, as he pointed out while breaking down the top NBA free agents.

But where it looks like Green is not a good offensive player and may never be, it's pretty much certain that Luc is a bad offensive player and will likely always be. He has little range, no dribble-drive game to speak of and impossibly light playmaking ability. He's basically a smaller Chuck Hayes. I do not recommend that he puts that on his CV.

Nevertheless, it seems that Mbah a Moute will be rewarded for his ability as a defensive stopper by Scott Skiles and the Bucks front office. Kudos to him.

Luc Richard Mbah A Moute Receives Offer From Denver Nuggets

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is a restricted free agent, allowing the Milwaukee Bucks to match any offers other NBA teams send the defensive specialist during the lockout-shortened free agency period. Mbah a Moute's first offer, submitted on Saturday, has apparently been sent from the Denver Nuggets.

The Nuggets sent an offer sheet that would pay Mbah a Moute a bit more than $19 million over the course of the next four seasons, according to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post. The Bucks would have a chance to match the offer, but Hochman's source said that might not happen.

The Nuggets opened training camp on Friday with just 11 players, including two rookies considered long shots to make an NBA opening-day roster, after losing the majority of their roster in the offseason. Wilson Chandler and J.R. Smith are playing in China this season while Nene, perhaps the team's best player last season, is exploring his free agency options along with Nuggets restricted free agent Arron Afflalo.

The Bucks will have three days to match the Nuggets offer if they're so inclined. As pointed out in our free agency preview, they're likely to be inclined -- but Denver's offer might be a bit more than they're willing to pay.
