Bucks tell Giannis Antetokounmpo they will spend to build around him

Giannis Antetokounmpo the bucks

In the wake of a disappointing second-round post-season elimination that has spawned rumours about his future, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee Bucks ownership reportedly met to discuss what comes next for the franchise, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Antetokounmpo agreed to meet with Lasry again once he returns from a vacation. "I think part of it is we know we're going to be in it".

The team opened the 2019-20 season with aspirations of bringing an National Basketball Association title to Milwaukee for the first time since 1971 and posted the NBA's best record but were eliminated by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals in five games. We're going to keep working.

Jerry Harris of 'Cheer' reportedly under FBI investigation for allegedly soliciting minors
Armed with a warrant, agents searched a home in Naperville, Illinois, as part of the investigation, USA Today reported Monday. However, she declined to comment on specifics of the investigation and did not name Harris.

Friday's meeting coincided with Antetokounmpo unfollowing nearly everyone on social media.

Heading into the final year of his contract, Antetokounmpo will have to decide whether he wants to sign an extension with the Bucks or enter free agency in 2021. But he already has said he won't push for a trade while he plays next season in Milwaukee, and there's no reason to believe the Bucks would even consider trading him.

On Saturday the meeting, in light of Antetokounmpo's previous quotes, was likely centred on how the Bucks can use this offseason to take the leap from contender to the champion.
