Giannis Antetokounmpo is rumored to leave the Milwaukee Bucks very soon as the NBA 2019-20 season has started. The Bucks star was awarded the MVP title earlier this year and given his amazing performance, every team is eyeing him and the Golden State Warriors are said to lead the race. While the Bucks are ready to offer Giannis $253.8 million for a five-year contract extension, the star might have some other plans.
Giannis Antetokounmpo becomes the first player since Oscar Robertson in 1966 to post a 30-point triple-double in his opening game of the season.

The Greek Freak will be a free agent after the next NBA season and if the Bucks can’t form a winning roster, he would most likely leave them for a contending side. Giannis has said re-signing with Milwaukee Bucks will be difficult if they lose badly next year and he also confirmed his playing status for the NBA 2019-20 season.
Giannis is Being Diplomatic about Leaving Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo wants to leave the Bucks team but he can’t say that in open as it creates a lot of controversies. It is said that Giannis has urged the Milwaukee Bucks to build a winning culture and add more capable players to their roster. If he doesn’t see himself making any progress with the team, “re-signing with the Bucks will become a lot more difficult.” The statement from the Greek Freak turned hot and he had to clarify his comments in a diplomatic way.
As I’ve said before there are a lot of things going on right now and a lot of stories will come out considering the sensitive time. They are going to create stories out of thin air, my girlfriend Mariah asked me about this and I replied that I’ve never used those words in my life.
Milwaukee Bucks are unable to win even after having one of the best NBA stars in their team. The problem lies in the team roster and now that Kemba Walker has left the Bucks, it has gotten more difficult as Giannis alone have to lead the team. Khris Middleton and Kyle Korver might be some help, but other than it all comes down to Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Also, the NBA Eastern Conference has gotten a bit thicker after the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics have upgraded their roster. The Bucks will have to do something if they want to win the NBA 2019-20 Larry O’Brien trophy.
