    Early life and high school

    Middleton was born on August 12, 1991 in Charleston, South Carolina to James and Nichelle Middleton. He has one older sister named Brittney, and his cousin, Josh Powell, has played in the NBA. Another cousin, Kenny Manigault, played basketball for Wichita State University and was teammates with Middleton on the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) team Carolina Celtics.[1] Two other teammates on the Carolina Celtics accepted Division I basketball scholarships, Jamal Curry (Radford) and Devin Booker (Clemson).[2]

    Middleton attended Porter-Gaud School and played basketball for the Cyclones under coach John Pearson. As a sophomore, he averaged 12 points and eight rebounds per game.[3] In his junior season, Middleton posted averages of 21 points and 8.6 rebounds per game and was named state player of the year. He repeated as player of the year as a senior, scoring 22.4 points per game and grabbing 8.6 rebounds per game in leading Porter-Gaud to the state title game.[2] Middleton was named Most Valuable Player of the Porter-Gaud Holiday Classic, scoring 22 points in the championship.[4] He was nominated for the 2009 McDonald's All-American Boys Game, but was not selected to participate.[5]

    ESPN ranked him the 64th best prospect in the Class of 2009, and noted he was the best shooter at his position. Middleton was recruited by Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Michigan, and Saint Joseph's.[2] He chose Texas A&M, and signed with the Aggies on May 30, 2008. He liked the college town atmosphere, and got along well with the coaching staff.[6]

    College career
    Freshman year

    Middleton was recruited by then Texas A&M assistant coach Scott Spinelli. Coming into his freshman year, Middleton expected to fill the three point shooting void of departed senior Josh Carter. Middleton's college career started slowly, connecting on 1-of-12 field goals in limited action of his first three games.[7] After a season-ending leg injury to Derrick Roland on December 11, 2009, Middleton was forced to take a larger role in the offense and started 18 of the last 20 games. On February 3, 2010, he scored 16 points to help Texas A&M erase an 11-point second half deficit to defeat Missouri 77-74.[8] In a 69-53 NCAA Tournament Round of 64 victory over Utah State, Middleton scored a season-high 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting.[9] Texas A&M's season ended with a loss in the Round of 32 to Purdue; the Aggies finished with a record of 24-10.[10] Overall, Khris Middleton averaged 7.2 points and 3.7 rebounds per game and led the team in scoring five times.[2]
    Sophomore year

    As a sophomore, Middleton led the team and finished ninth in the Big 12 in scoring at 14.3 points per game while also contributing 5.2 rebounds per game. He hit 45 percent of his shots from the floor and 78.4 percent of his free throws. Middleton scored in excess of 10 points in 27 games and led the team in scoring 16 times.[2] He scored a career-high 31 points in a 71-62 overtime victory over Arkansas, including 11 of the team's last 12 points in regulation. This earned him Big 12 Player of the Week and Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week honors for the week of December 13–19, 2010.[11] On January 15, 2011, Middleton tallied 28 points, including 11 in overtime, to defeat Missouri 91-89.[12]

    Middleton-led Texas A&M went 24-9 and lost in the NCAA Tournament Round of 64 to Florida State 57-50, in a contest in which Middleton contributed 16 points.[13] He was selected to the All-Big 12 Second Team at the conclusion of the regular season.[14] The U.S. Basketball Writers Association named Middleton to the 10-man All-District VII team covering college basketball players in the states of Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana.[15] He was recognized as an All-Eighth District second-team selection by the National Association of Basketball Coaches making him eligible for the State Farm Division I All‐America teams.[16] Since the Big 12 Conference was its own district, this is equivalent to being named second team All-Big 12 by the NABC.[17]
    Junior year
    Middleton playing against Iowa State in 2012

    Prior to Middleton's junior season, head coach Mark Turgeon left to take the same position at the University of Maryland and was replaced by Billy Kennedy of Murray State. Middleton was impressed with Kennedy's coaching acumen and chose to remain an Aggie.[18] He was listed on the preseason watchlist for the Wooden Award.[19] Middleton was a unanimous choice to the preseason All-Big 12 team.[20]

    Despite being the preseason co-favorite in the league, Texas A&M finished 14-18 overall and 4-14 in the Big 12. The team was hampered by a rash of injuries, including a knee injury that forced Middleton to sit for 12 games. He averaged 13.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game, down from the previous season. On April 9, 2012, Middleton declared for the NBA Draft, forgoing his final season of collegiate eligibility. He thanked Texas A&M in a statement.[21]
    Professional career
    Detroit Pistons (2012–2013)

    Middleton was selected by the Detroit Pistons with the 39th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft. On August 15, 2012, he signed his rookie scale contract with the Pistons.[22] On December 12, 2012, he was assigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA Development League.[23] A week later, he was recalled by the Pistons.[24] He finished his rookie season having managed just 27 games for the Pistons while averaging 6.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 17.6 minutes per game.
    Milwaukee Bucks (2013–present)

    On July 31, 2013, Middleton was traded, along with Brandon Knight and Viacheslav Kravtsov, to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for guard Brandon Jennings.[25] In contrast to his limited action in 2012–13, Middleton played all 82 games in 2013–14, while starting 64 and averaging 12.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.0 steals in 30.0 minutes per game. On December 6, 2013, he scored a then career-high 29 points in a 109–105 win over the Washington Wizards.[26]

    On December 15, 2014, the Bucks were down by one to the Phoenix Suns with under four seconds remaining in regulation as Middleton hit a contested game-winning buzzer beater to defeat the Suns, 96–94, with Middleton finishing with 14 points.[27] On March 7, 2015, he scored a then-career-high 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting in a 91–85 win over the Washington Wizards.[28] In his second season with the Bucks, Middleton emerged as an important "3-and-D" player, shooting 46.7 percent from the floor and 40.7 percent from behind the three-point arc. He averaged 13.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.[29]

    On July 9, 2015, Middleton re-signed with the Bucks to a five-year, $70 million contract, with a player option for the fifth year. This constituted a significant pay raise for Middleton, as he earned $915,000 the prior year.[29][30] On December 29, 2015, in a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, he scored a career-high 36 points on 13-of-22 from the field and 6-of-9 from three-point range.[31] On March 4, 2016, in a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, he scored 32 points on 11-of-16 shooting, including 8-of-9 on three-pointers, marking the most three-pointers made by a Bucks player since Carlos Delfino had eight on March 18, 2011.[32] He tied his career high of 36 points on April 10, 2016, in a 109–108 overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers.[33]

    On September 21, 2016, Middleton was ruled out for six months after sustaining a left hamstring injury in preseason workouts that required surgery.[34] On February 8, 2017, he made his season debut after missing the first 50 games with the hamstring injury, scoring five points in 15 minutes in a 106–88 loss to the Miami Heat.[35] On March 17, 2017, he scored 14 of his season-high 30 points in the fourth quarter of the Bucks' 107–103 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.[36]

    On November 1, 2017, Middleton scored a then career-high 43 points in a 126–121 loss to the Charlotte Hornets.[37][38] On November 22, 2017, he scored 40 points in a 113–107 overtime win over the Phoenix Suns.[39] On January 20, 2018, he had his first career-triple double with 23 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in a 116–94 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.[40] In Game 1 of the Bucks' first-round playoff series against the Boston Celtics, Middleton had 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists in a 113–107 overtime loss.[41] The Bucks went on to lose the series in seven games, despite Middleton's 32 points in a 112–96 loss in Game 7.[42]

    On October 22, 2018, Middleton hit 7 of 8 3-pointers and finished with 30 points in a 124–113 win over the New York Knicks.[43] On December 29, despite a quad injury, Middleton scored 29 points in a 129–115 win over the Brooklyn Nets.[44] On January 31, 2019, Middleton was named an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve, thus earning his first All-Star selection.[45] On February 21, 2019, he had 15 points and a season-high 13 rebounds in a 98–97 win over the Celtics.[46] On March 28, he scored a season-high 39 points in a 128–118 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.[47]

    Following the 2019 season, Middleton signed a 5 year, $178 million contract extension with the Milwaukee Bucks.[48] On January 28, 2020, Middleton set a new career-high, scoring 51 points, making 16 of 26 shots, including 7 of 10 on 3-pointers, in a 151–131 victory over the Washington Wizards.[49] On January 30, 2020, Middleton was named an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve, thus earning his second consecutive All-Star selection.[50] On February 24, Middleton scored 40 points in a 137–134 overtime win over the Wizards.[51] Middleton missed a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on February 28 due to neck soreness.[52]
