Horst: Bucks Will Offer Giannis Antetokounmpo Super-Max

Reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo will be primed for a massive super-max extension next summer and the Bucks are already looking forward to locking him up long-term.

At a recent town hall, GM Jon Horst addressed one fan’s question about Antetokounmpo’s contractual status.

“The answer for now is that we can’t negotiate anything,” Horst said.  “So Giannis, basically a year from now will be eligible for a super-max extension. At that time, of course, he will be offered a super-max extension.”

Antetokounmpo, 24, is coming off an incredible 2018/19 campaign in which he averaged 27.7 PPG, 12.5 RPG and 5.9 APG in 72 games for Milwaukee. As the reigning MVP, Antetokounmpo’s earning potential skyrockets and he would be in line for the largest contract in NBA history.

The Bucks could potentially offer the “Greek Freak” a five-year, $247MM extension next summer, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks. While it remains to be seen if Antetokounmpo commits to Milwaukee long-term next summer, another strong year and extended playoff push could help persuade him.

    Wait a minute! So, you’re trying to tell me that a small-market team in an attempt to keep their raining MVP that they will offer him the Supermax contract? Is that what you’re trying to tell me? Wow! Thanks for that breaking news scoop.

        Simply not true. It’s incredible the amount of money in the NBA right now. Especially in a place like Wisconsin with terrible weather. They love their indoor sports, and everyone pays for the sports cable package.

        HWM So what? Supermax deals are a tough fit for anyone if even possible. Crappy trolling.

    Unless there is some unforeseen falling out between Giannis and the coach or management, giannis will be a buck lifer even past that supermax. Anyone who thinks otherwise doesn’t know anything about this kid other then he’s talented.
