The most critical piece of business in the NBA this coming offseason will be whether Giannis Antetkounmpo signs a supermax contract extension with the Milwaukee Bucks. Many NBA teams are positioned to pursue Antetkounmpo if he becomes available in free agency in 2021 and if he decides to commit his future to the Bucks in 2020, that may open those teams up to pursue other stars.
"One of the things when I talk to executives out there that they say is if Giannis extends with the Bucks this summer, which depending on who you talk to is either a slam dunk or a real question, the Bucks certainly feel like they have a great chance to extend him this summer," said Brian Windhorst on his podcast. "If he signs that supermax extension this summer and all of the teams that are sort of saving, you know, keeping their ammo dry for 2021 may begin to make action. They tell me this summer's star movement may be hinged on whether or not Giannis extends or not. If he extends, you'll all of a sudden see more action."
