Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee Bucks’s contracts did not expire until 2021, but the New York Knicks could soon find another target at the Free Agency.
In 2021, Giannis Antetokounmpo will become the hottest name in the transfer market when the contract with Milwaukee Bucks expires. The reigning MVP is definitely in the pursuit of any team. However, the New York Knicks’ plan was soon torn before the year because they upset the Greek demigod.
The owner of Madison Square Garden did not give Antetokounmpo enough opportunity when he was playing for this team. Of course we don’t talk about Giannis, but about elder brother Thanasis. Thanasis Antetokounmpo spent two years playing for the Knicks G-League team. As a result, he only got a 10-day contract, played 2 NBA matches and was fired.
The 51st pick in the 2014 Draft of New York Knicks moved to the Andorra club in the Spanish league. In 2017, Thanasis returned to Greece, winning 2 times and winning the title of the best player in the Panathinaikos shirt twice. That impressive performance gave him a foothold in Milwaukee Bucks this season.
Being an affectionate person, Giannis Antetokounmpo certainly cannot ignore the attitude that New York Knicks has for his brother. In 2015, the star publicly expressed his frustration at not facing him at the London Game match between Bucks and Knicks.
However, it is not too late to correct it. The youngest brother of the Antetokounmpo family, Alex, will participate in the Draft that takes place in 2021. If you choose this player, the image of the Madison Square Garden team will probably be better for Giannis. However, in case Alex does not fit the play that the team built, this will be a big gamble.
Besides, there are still many other teams that are turning their attention to the Greek Gods. Of course, MVP has a lot of options on hand and perhaps the New York Knicks will have to express greater intentions than that. If he leaves Milwaukee Bucks, Antetokounmpo will definitely choose a Championship candidate. This feeling, New York fans have not enjoyed since the 90s.
