For what it's worth, the Greek Freak is not willing to discuss his free-agency plans -- at least, not now.
After much rumor and speculation about possible destinations for the young superstar (that do not involve Milwaukee), Giannis is once again showing his loyalty to the team with which he started it all.
Bucks GM Jon Horst sang the same tune.
“For right now, we can’t talk or negotiate anything. Giannis, basically a year from now, will be eligible for a supermax extension,” Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in September. “At that time, of course, he’ll be offered a supermax extension.”
Obviously, things can always change between Giannis and the Bucks. Time has a way of doing that.
But, for now, both sides are moving towards a long-term partnership. Both sides are hungry for a Championship, and we can expect them to continue that pursuit together. This upcoming season will be huge for them going forward.
