League sources told Yahoo Sports that LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokonampo met with the proprietorship Saturday afternoon.
Last season’s MVP and this year’s Defensive Player of the Year met with co-owner Mark Larry, sources said.
The meeting took place on the same day that the 6-foot-11 star followed hundreds on Twitter and Instagram, including the Bucks’ team account and their teammates.
The 25-year-old Antetoconpo has one year left on his contract, and he is eligible for this maximum-maximum extension expected to be around $ 254 million over five years. He may choose to play the final year of his deal before deciding on his long-term future.
The Bucks were eliminated in five matches last week by the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs. After the game, Antetokenmpo told Yahoo Sports that it would not request a trade.
“Some people see a wall and go in [another direction]. I pledge through this, ”he said. “We just have to do better as a team, individually and return right next season.”
The Bucks are committed to building and maintaining a championship roster around Entetoconampo and are expected to be one of the busiest teams.
Rival parties are closely monitoring the situation.
