The Golden State Warriors have been linked with a pursuit of Giannis Antetokounmpo, but that is not something the Milwaukee Bucks are concerned about at this time.
“Keeping Giannis, it’s a focus obviously,” one Bucks front-office source told Heavy.com. “But fighting the Warriors is not a focus. The Warriors are not the concern in the least. They’d have a long way to go to get him to Golden State, they’d have to give away a lot. He has never given any indication that he wants to leave Milwaukee. So a lot of that stuff, it is more chatter than anything.”
The Bucks plan on offering Antetokounmpo a supermax contract next offseason.
Antetokounmpo can't become a free agent until 2021 and the Warriors would have to trade Klay Thompson and one of either Draymond Green or D'Angelo Russell to create enough cap space to sign him.
