The reigning NBA MVP is eligible to sign a super-max extension with the Bucks this offseason, and multiple sources have been “adamant” that Milwaukee won’t trade Antetokounmpo if he doesn’t ink a deal, according to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps.
An Antetokounmpo super-max contract with the Bucks could be worth approximately $220 million – roughly $80 million more than he could get from another team as a free agent in 2021. Those figures hinge on a projected 2020-21 NBA salary cap of $109.1 million.
If the Bucks don’t re-sign the superstar or deal him prior to next season’s trade deadline, they risk losing him for nothing as an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
Reports have circulated that the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors are considered front-runners to land Antetokounmpo if he leaves Milwaukee. Those two teams are currently forecasted to hold salary-cap space in 2021, but any trade involving Giannis would change that equation.
