MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton has been named an All-Star for the second consecutive season, the NBA announced Thursday.
Middleton will join teammate and All-Star Game captain Giannis Antetokounmpo for the second straight season as Bucks representatives at this year's All-Star Game.
In his eighth season in the league, Middleton is on pace to become only the fifth player in NBA history to average more than 20.0 points per game while shooting better than 50% overall, 40% from three and 90% from the free-throw line.
Middleton is the 12th player in Bucks history to earn multiple All-Star selections.
