Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo made headlines over the weekend when he was asked whether he could see himself playing for the Bulls.
“I think anybody you ask that question that plays basketball, if he said no, he’d be a liar,” Giannis told The Sports Zone in Chicago.
“It’s a team that won multiple championships. It’s a team with one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game, played for. Everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. You never know how life brings it. Maybe I’ll play for Chicago, but right now I’m committed to Milwaukee.”
It’s an interesting quote from the two-time league MVP, who won a championship with Milwaukee in 2021.
Giannis is indeed committed to the Bucks after signing a five-year, $228 million supermax contract extension in 2021. The earliest the Milwaukee star could reach free agency is ’26.
With Milwaukee as perennial contenders in the Eastern Conference, it’s hard to imagine Giannis playing anywhere but with the Bucks. However, his comments about the Bulls are interesting and certainly leave the door cracked open for playing elsewhere later in his career.
