Brogdon excelled in his third year with the Milwaukee Bucks, improving his statistical production in most categories. Brogdon averaged a career-high 15.6 points per contest in 64 games, all starts, during the 2018-19 season. He shot almost 51 percent from the floor, including 43 percent from three-point range, both career highs. The Virginia product was exceptional from the foul line, too, leading the NBA in free-throw percentage at 92.8 percent. Brogdon scored a season-high 25 points in an overtime win at Sacramento on Feb. 27. He also averaged 4.5 rebounds per tilt, though failed to record a double-double during the regular season. Brogdon managed 3.2 assists per game, which was fifth on the squad. However, Brogdon missed the final month of the regular season, a span of 18 games, due to a right foot plantar fascia tear. The injury also forced Brogdon to miss all but one game of the Bucks' first two playoff series. Brogdon was healthy for the Eastern Conference Finals, though, posting perhaps his best game of the season in a Game 5 loss to the Toronto Raptors. Brogdon tallied 18 points, 11 rebounds and six assists in the 105-99 defeat. Brogdon's Bucks would lose in six games to the Raptors. Assuming the Bucks extend Brogdon a qualifying offer, the guard enters the off-season as a restricted free agent.2017
Coming off a Rookie of the Year performance, Malcolm Brogdon continued to improve in his age-25 season. He averaged 13 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 29.9 minutes in 48 games played. He also shot 48.5 percent from the field and 38.5 percent on three-point attempts. He started the season off strong with double-digit scoring performances in his first five games and in 11 of his first 13. During that 13-game span, the 6-foot-5 guard averaged 14.8 points and four assists on 48.6 percent shooting. He recorded his only double-double of the season during that span with a season-high 10 assists. Brogdon finished the year with 37 double-digit scoring games, including a career-high 32 points on Jan. 22. Unfortunately, the Virginia product lost over two months of the season due to a torn quad. Brogdon returned near the end of the season and averaged 8.7 points on 43.6 percent shooting across seven postseason appearances.2016
