News: Plumlee split the 2014-15 season between Phoenix and Milwaukee, appearing in 73 total games. In 19 games for Milwaukee, Plumlee averaged 3.2 points and 2.4 rebounds in 9.9 minutes.
Impact: Plumlee came over from Phoenix with Tyler Ennis as part of the Brandon Knight/Michael Carter-Williams deal. After averaging nearly 19 minutes per game with Phoenix as a part-time starter, Plumlee saw his role greatly reduced in Milwaukee playing behind Zaza Pachulia and John Henson. Plumlee was in and out of the rotation throughout the second half of the year, logging a few minutes one night and a receiving a DNP-CD the next. He saw double-digit minutes just once over the final 11 games of the season and appeared in only one playoff game � Milwaukee's 54-point Game 6 loss to the Bulls. Next season, Plumlee will enter the fourth year of his rookie deal, which will pay him $2.1 million. With both Henson and Pachulia expected back in 2014-15, Plumlee may again have trouble carving out a consistent role.
