Giannis Antetokounmpo Agrees To Extension with Bucks
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo says he's staying with the Milwaukee Bucks for at least five more seasons.
The two-time reigning MVP tweeted Wednssday that he was "blessed" to be part of the Bucks for the next five years. The 26-year-old Antetokounmpo had until Monday to sign the Bucks' supermax extension offer.
Antetokounmpo otherwise could have become a free agent after the upcoming season. His decision means the Bucks will hang on to their biggest superstar since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The 5-year deal is reportedly worth $228.2 million, with an opt-out option after year four.
