Giannis supermax deal commits him to Bucks

Share This Post

With the signing of Giannis supermax deal, for five-years and $228M, one of the best players in the NBA has committed his future to the Bucks. Milwaukee had feared losing their talisman and MVP for free next summer, but now they have him locked up and can look to build a team around him.

Giannis Antetokounmpo became just the third player in NBA history to win the MVP and Defensive Player of the year award in the same season in 2020. He average 29.5 points, 13.6 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per game, registering a 31.9 player efficiency rating.

Giannis supermax deal will disappoint a few teams

The Bucks will have a great deal of relief as the signing of the Giannis supermax extension gives them some stability heading into not just this season, but 2021-22 as well. It was widely reported that teams were already lining up their 21/22 rosters with a view to making a run at Giannis. The Miami Heat in particular were looking to pair Giannis with his good friend Bam Adebayo, who signed his own supermax extension this offseason.

Giannis supermax extension comes after he lead the Bucks to the best regular season record in each of the last two seasons before falling in the playoffs. In 2019 they lost to the eventual Champion Toronto Raptors while in 2020 they lost to the runner-up Miami Heat.

The Bucks have been active in free agency, bringing in Jrue Holiday, DJ Augustinm Bryn Forbes, and Torrey Craig. But this offseason will be most notable for tying up Giannis Antetokounmpo a year before he hit free agency. The commit from both Giannis and Milwaukee to get this deal done bodes well for this franchise over the coming seasons.
