The Milwaukee Bucks plan on offering Giannis Antetokounmpo a supermax contract next offseason. Antetokounmpo could become a free agent in 2021 if he doesn’t sign the supermax.
“The Warriors have always been a big threat to go after Giannis,” said Ramona Shelburne on The Jump. “One, he’s friends with Steph Curry. He has that same agency. It would be a difficult construction to make happen, but that is that one looming threat. And it comes down to what kind of guy is Giannis. What does he want his legacy to be? Is he the guy that stays with one team his entire career and tries to bring a championship Milwaukee, or does he pull a Kevin Durant and go join a group of super friends?”
The Warriors would almost certainly need to make a trade to acquire Antetokounmpo as they don’t project to have max cap space in 2021.
