Brogdon appeared in 56 games for the Pacers during the 2020-21 regular season and started each time, with his longest absence being a 10-game stretch due to a nagging hamstring injury. The former Bucks guard delivered his best game of the season on January 25 against the Toronto Raptors, posting 36 points, seven rebounds and nine assists across 37 minutes. The point guard scored at least 30 points in four different games, and he also recorded double-digit rebounds three times, as well as double-digit assists in three other games. His most complete game of the season came April 11 against the Memphis Grizzlies, when he finished with 29 points, 11 assists, nine rebounds and a steal across 39 minutes.

His most productive stretch came between January 2 and January 11, a five-game span in which he scored 27.0 points and dished out 8.6 assists per game. All things considered, Brogdon averaged career-best marks in points (21.2) and rebounds (5.3) per game, and he also posted 5.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.3 blocks across a career-high 34.5 minutes per contest during the regular season.

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
