A former Milwaukee Bucks player has had an unfortunate run-in with the law. It was reported earlier today that a player who had an incredible playoff series performance for the Milwaukee Bucks during the 2020-2021 season was arrested on misdemeanor charges.
Bryn Forbes Arrested After Striking Woman “Multiple Times”
According to KSAT.com:
Former San Antonio Spurs guard and NBA free agent Bryn Forbes was arrested in San Antonio on a misdemeanor family violence charge early Wednesday morning. Forbes, 29, was arrested around 5:15 a.m. at the La Cantera Resort & Spa, in the 16600 block of La Cantera Parkway, on the city’s far Northwest Side.
Police said the woman was struck several times by Forbes, causing injury and needing medical assistance. Forbes was taken by officers into police custody. Forbes this NBA season has played for the Minnesota Timberwolves, but was cut back on Feb. 9. He has yet to be picked up by another NBA team.
The former Michigan State Spartan went undrafted back in 2016 and played five NBA seasons with the Spurs, most recently in 2021-2022, when he played 40 games for the Silver and Black. He averaged nine points per game that season. The case remains under investigation, police said.
Bryn Forbes signed a two-year contract with the Milwaukee Bucks before the 2020-21 season. The second year was a player option which he declined. As a role player off the Bucks’ bench, Forbes averaged 10 points per game while shooting 45.2% from three. Forbes’ lack of defense was a frustration at times, and led him to see less playing time as the Bucks got deeper in the playoffs.
Forbes was hot off the bench in the Bucks’ opening round against the Heat. He averaged 15 points per game while shooting 48.4% from three. Unfortunately, his shooting cooled down considerably in the later rounds. Against Brooklyn, he averaged 4.6 points and shot just 27.2% from three. In the Eastern Conference Finals, he averaged five points on 32% shooting from three. Finally, in the Championship round, he averaged just three points per game on 33% from beyond the arc.
