The Milwaukee Bucks struck gold when they drafted Giannis Antetokounmpo as the 15th overall in the 2013 NBA draft. But there was no hype surrounding the selection of Giannis from Greece. 

He had to work his way up the ladder in the NBA. He entered the league as a lanky young boy and has now become one of the most dominant men ever to play the game. Truly, Giannis’ transformation is something to behold.

In 2016, Giannis reportedly signed a 4-year $100 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks. And it has paid dividends to the Bucks, you could say. This was Giannis’ first big contract.

In the 2015-16 season, he averaged 16.9 points, 77 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.4 blocks, and 1.2 steals per game. After Giannis’ emergence as a superstar in the NBA, the Bucks wanted to tie him to a long-term contract. 

So in 2016, the Bucks offered him a four-year, $100 million contract extension. Milwaukee made a big long-term commitment to him. They decided to make Giannis the cornerstone of the organization going forward, and it worked.
