Giannis Antetokounmpo’s four-year, $100 million contract extension looks even better for the Bucks.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN:

Convincing Antetokounmpo to accept less than the max? Good work. Doing it without giving him a player option? Nearly unfathomable.

Milwaukee has Antetokounmpo locked up through age 25. The final year of his deal, based on reported terms, can be $27,528,090 at most. I bet he’ll be worth more than that in 2020-21.

Whether he hit unrestricted free agency at age 24, 25 or 26, Antetokounmpo was always going to be well-positioned to command another monster deal through the rest of his prime. The Bucks are fortunate to save what they can now and, more importantly, gain control of Antetokounmpo for so long.
