A lot has been made about Giannis Antetokounmpo’s future with the Milwaukee Bucks. It has only become a bigger story after the shortcomings they experienced in the NBA bubble, then even more so after he unfollowed the team and his teammates on social media.
Next season will mark the final year of Antetokounmpo’s current contract. After falling short of winning the NBA Finals in what will be both of his MVP campaigns, there have been questions regarding if he will stay in Milwaukee long-term.
According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Antentokounmpo met with Bucks ownership to discuss his future with the organization.
Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo met with ownership Saturday afternoon to discuss the future of the franchise, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Antetokounmpo is eligible to sign a supermax extension with the Bucks this offseason, meaning Milwaukee will face substantial pressure to either get a deal done or hope he will not leave in free agency.
The Bucks could be prompted to make some real changes in the offseason to their current roster in order to solidify themselves in what could be their last chance to win the NBA Finals with Antetokounmpo.
A potential trade involving Antetokounmpo would net the Bucks a substantial return, even without an agreement on a contract extension between him and a potential trade suitor.
Regardless, giving it another go next season with Giannis Antetokounmpo even without an agreement on a contract extension appears to be the most likely decision for the Milwaukee Bucks.
