Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo

Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t moving anywhere in the near future, but he might once his contract with Bucks comes to an end.

Antetokounmpo was the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and went through some great development as a player. He also lifted the Bucks during his time there. In the last season, he powered the Bucks to a conference final and won the NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) award. For the second consecutive season now, Milwaukee could finish as the Eastern Conference leaders and Giannis could be the MVP.

With things going well, it does not seem, at least at this moment, that Giannis Antetokounmpo will be looking for a move away from Milwaukee.

Giannis, however, has just over a year remaining on his contract and will hit free agency after the 2020-21 season. This is when teams will be looking to cash in on the Greek Freak.

Giannis Antetokounmpo could form a big 3 at Dallas

Talking about the future of Dallas Mavericks, former NBA player Brian Scalabrine has recently suggested that Dallas could be a good place for Giannis.

“I don’t think Giannis is going to leave Milwaukee, but if Giannis did leave Milwaukee I would 100% go to Dallas over going to Miami even though they have Pat Riley and are playing well in the Eastern Conference,” Scalbrine was quoted as saying by Dallas News on 105.3 The Fan FM Radio.

He believed Antetokounmpo could form an unprecedented big-3 along with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis in Dallas.

“Playing in Dallas with Luka if you’re him and you have Giannis, KP, and Luka, you’re not talking about maybe winning a championship, you’re talking about winning not one, not two, not three, not four and that kind of stuff,” he said.
