WHILE Giannis Antetokounmpo has made it clear he isn’t leaving, yet, he apparently wants to know what steps the Milwaukee Bucks bosses are taking next after the top regular-season team’s postseason run ended in the second round.
The NBA MVP has unfollowed his Bucks teammates on social media and, according to according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, met with Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry to get up to speed on the team development.
In waving off suggestions he would ask for a trade, Antetokounmpo noted he expects improvements in the team.
“We just have to get better as a team, individually and get right back at it next season,” said Antetokounmpo.
Top team with a 56-17 regular season record, the Bucks fell short of expectations as East No. 5 Miami Heat completed a five-game romp in the conference semifinals.
How the Bucks can build a stronger support crew may have been main topic of the meeting.
Antetokounmpo is set to get a super-max contract extension when free agency officially opens.
That could amount to $233 million.
