The Eastern Conference might consistently run through Milwaukee, Wisconsin over the next three seasons. Perennial MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo is officially staying in green and white. According to multiple reports, including Uproxx, the Greek Freak has just agreed on a three-year $186 million contract extension. What a sigh of relief for this franchise. Giannis made plenty of statements that he was not fully committed until the front office showed their desire to compete for titles. Well, they responded to his wishes. Bringing in Damian Lillard solved everything. Furthermore, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says that the deal includes a player option for the 2027-2028 campaign.
Besides keeping Giannis in a Bucks jersey, maybe the most important part is that his and Dame’s contracts align perfectly. The star point guard’s deal expires in 2027 as well, so that will be another offseason to pay attention to. While it was difficult to see Jrue Holiday be shipped to Boston, there is no doubt that the offensive firepower will be even more formidable. Giannis put up 31 points per game and Damian averaged 32.
