NBA rumors: What Giannis Antetokounmpo, Bucks discussed at meeting




 

What Giannis, Bucks owner reportedly discussed at key meeting originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

What did Giannis Antetokounmpo do Saturday afternoon?

The Greek Freak met with Milwaukee Bucks ownership to discuss future plans, Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reported Saturday evening.

But according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the two sides actually got together Friday.

"(Co-owner and governor Marc) Lasry and Antetokounmpo discussed the Bucks' season and disappointing finish, and brainstormed on some personnel upgrades that could be available to the franchise in the offseason," Woj writes.

The Warriors certainly are monitoring the situation, and would love to acquire the soon-to-be two-time NBA MVP.

But as ESPN's Bobby Marks told The Ringer's Ryen Russillo last week, it's way too soon for Golden State to check in with Milwaukee.

"(General manager) Bob Myers is not calling [Bucks GM] Jon Horst over the weekend about Giannis [laughter]," he said. "He is not. And if he is, shame on him.

"Especially for a guy like Giannis -- franchise-level player -- [who] has not given any inclination that he wants out. I guess we can call them the 'Giannis rules.' You are not calling to see what his availability is. I think it's offensive to do that."

It remains unclear if Giannis will sign the five-year supermax extension this offseason, or become an unrestricted free agent in 2021.

The expectation is that he will not demand a trade.

"It's not happening. That's not happening," the 25-year-old superstar told Haynes last Tuesday shortly after the Bucks' season came to an end.
