Giannis Antetkounmpo will become eligible for a supermax contract extension next offseason, which will be a crossroads for both his career individually and the Milwaukee Bucks as a franchise.
Antetkounmpo vows to wait until the 2020 offseason to address
"I’m not going to talk about it a lot this season and I’m not going to try to address it,” said Antetkounmpo.
The Bucks have already said they will offer Antetkounmpo the supermax and they subsequently received a fine by the NBA.
"I feel like if you have a great team, and our goal is to win a championship and be the last team standing and get better each day, I think it's disrespectful towards my teammates talking about my free agency and what I'm going through," Antetokounmpo said. "So, when the time is right, we're all gonna talk about it. I don't think the time is right."
