Giannis Antetokounmpo has four seasons remaining on a five-year, $228 million extension with the Milwaukee Bucks he signed before leading the team to the 2021 championship and has generally signaled a strong commitment to the franchise.
In promoting his new ambassadorship with the telehealth company Antidote Health, Antetokounmpo was asked by Fox 32 Chicago about the potential of playing for the Bulls in the future. And while reiterating his commitment to the Bucks, Antetokounmpo said he would be open to the idea of one day playing for his rival down in Chicago.
“I think anybody you ask that question that plays basketball, if he said no, he’d be a liar,” Antetokounmpo said in the interview with Fox 32 Chicago. “It’s a team that won multiple championships; it’s a team that one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game, played for. So it’s a no-brainer; everybody would love to play for Chicago.”
The Bucks eliminated the Bulls in the first round of the playoffs.
“Down the line, you never know. You never know how life brings it, maybe I play for Chicago,” Antetokounmpo said. “But right now I’m committed to Milwaukee.”
