After months of speculation, Giannis has put a rest to all the possible theories concerning his future after signing a historic supermax contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. The five-year deal, which includes an opt-out after four years, is reportedly worth $228.2 million with Giannis confirming his extension with the club on Twitter.
The 2-time consecutive winner of the NBA MVP award stated that he looks forward to making the upcoming years count with the franchise.
“This is my home, this is my city.. I’m blessed to be able to be a part of the Milwaukee Bucks for the next 5 years. Let’s make these years count. The show goes on, let’s get it,”
This marks the largest contract in the NBA history and will ward off the interest generated by the Toronto Raptors, who wished to sign the Greek Freak after the end of the 2020-21 season.
Giannis has had a stellar time with the Bucks after being named in the All-Star side for four years in a row. He was picked by the franchise in the 2013 NBA Draft as the 15th overall pick.
Milwaukee Bucks have finished the previous two regular seasons as the No.1 seed in the conference table but have failed to clear the playoffs hurdle.
