Last Thursday (24), through The New York Times, Giannis Antetokounmpo left doubts about his future in his current Milwaukee Bucks team. During an interview with the vehicle, the athlete revealed that before the possible renewal period he wants to re-evaluate his contract.
“The real issue is that I’m not going to extend my contract with the Bucks next year because the numbers don’t add up. But next year, in the other offseason, it might make sense for both parties, I still don’t know”, said the athlete throughout the interview for the newspaper.
With the defeat of the 2023 season games, the player wants that when signing the renewal all parts of the team are connected so that they can make Milwaukee Bucks one of the great champions of the NBA. In this way, the team members would be willing and committed to victory.
“I wouldn’t be on the same version of myself if I didn’t know that everyone was on the same page. I don’t know if everyone is there for the title, if everyone is going to sacrifice their time with their families like I do. So, if I don’t feel it, I won’t sign”, revealed the Greek about his future.
Currently, the player’s five-year contract is valued at US$228.2 million and, if Giannis Antetokounmpo agreed to the new agreement, he would assume an extension of three more seasons equivalent to US$173 million. Faced with his knee operation, the athlete will be able to rethink his stay with the Milwaukee Bucks.
When closing the chat, the Greek believes that the team has no hard feelings if there is no renewal of the agreement: “There will never be hard feelings with the Milwaukee Bucks. I believe we’ve had an unbelievable 10 years and there’s no doubt that I gave everything for the city of Milwaukee. All. Every night, even when I’m hurt. I’m a Milwaukee Bucks. I bleed from the green. I know that”.
