Bucks Reasons for staying: To understand what drives Antetokounmpo, one needs only to read his Twitter bio: “Family-Loyalty-Legacy.” This is someone who still appreciates that Milwaukee took a chance on him when he was just a raw, gangly teenager who’d never played above Greece’s second division. Unlike some other perennial All-Stars, Antetokounmpo feels no urge […]
NBA All-Star and 2019 league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo met with Milwaukee Bucks owner Marc Lasry on Saturday to discuss his future with the team, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. Antetokounmpo unfollowed Milwaukee’s official team accounts and his teammates’ personal pages on Twitter and Instagram earlier in the day, perhaps miffed after the Bucks […]
With the Milwaukee Bucks facing elimination against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their second-round series, the team will have to keep its playoff hopes alive without its biggest star. Giannis Antetokounmpo has reportedly been ruled out for tonight’s game after suffering an injury in Game 4.
According to The Ringer, “multiple league sources” have claimed that the Clippers will try to acquire Antetokounmpo. The NBA superstar has one year left on his current deal, and is eligible for a huge extension this offseason.

“A deal” implies a trade. That is unlikely, and if it happens it is only because next season comes apart for Milwaukee, Antetokounmpo comes to GM Jon Horst and says he is not re-signing, and they have to make a move at the next trade deadline. Fans/talking heads will make the “you have to get […]

The Bucks can win this game and maybe extend the series long enough to get Antetokounmpo back (and make adjustments to get him flowing again). But each step will be difficult, starting with winning tonight without their best player.
Greg Monroe (three years, max) John Henson (four years, $44 million) Matthew Dellavedova (four years, $38.5 million) Mirza Teletovic (three years, $31.5 million) Miles Plumlee (four years, $52 million) Tony Snell (four years, $44 million) At best, those contracts served as roadblocks. But Milwaukee also surrendered a first-rounder to dump Henson and Dellavedova (and acquire […]
With the No. 1 seed Milwaukee Bucks eliminated in the second round by the No. 5 seed Miami Heat, fans and front offices from Golden State to Miami then north to Toronto — and everywhere in between — are plotting how to entice and trade for another disgruntled superstar.
Antetokounmpo played Game 4. If he feels the same way entering Game 5, he’ll play that, too. Antetokounmpo aggravated his injury and left Game 4. That showed he shouldn’t have been playing in the first place while feeling like this – especially with the Milwaukee Bucks down 3-0 or even 3-1 now. It seems Antetokounmpo […]
