Giannis, Bucks future at stake

Back-to-back NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks remains focused on the season with all the activity occurring. He will be joined by two recent acquisitions this 2020-21 season in former Sacramento Kings forward Bogdan Bogdanovic and former New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday. On Wednesday the Bucks dealt a number of picks to the Orlando Magic in order to choose #45 in the draft. The trade for Holiday also netted the Bucks the 60th pick overall. With those selections, the Bucks picked a pair of outside shooters in Jordan Nwora from Louisville and Utah State's Sam Merrill. The Pelicans received the Bucks' lone first-round pick in the deal for Holiday.

 

Antetokoumpo looks for the Bucks to win a championship, recently telling journalist Alexander Nilsson "There are a lot of rumors. Everyone has opinions. But at the end of the day, I will do what is best for my family. I do not see why I could not be in Milwaukee for several years. As long as Milwaukee and I are on the same page when it comes to being one of the best teams in the league and winning championships, that's fine.” Antetokounmpo is looking to sign a five-year supermax extension this offseason around $220 million, if the deal does not go through, free agency is an option.
