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 seasons, according 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.
