Next for the Bucks: Giannis has a huge decision to make

What now for Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks?

This is not how it was supposed to end for the Bucks — ousted in the second round of the playoffs after posting the NBA’s best regular-season record.

The postseason failure adds a new layer of complexity to Milwaukee’s hopes of keeping Antetokounmpo.

The reigning MVP and Defensive Player of the Year will have a big decision to make: to sign a $220 million supermax extension that would put him in a Bucks uniform through 2025-26 or seek to leave Milwaukee by trade or free agency.

Let’s look at the various outcomes for Giannis.

Note: The financials in here are based on the salary cap and luxury tax holding at the 2019-20 levels, as expected. Dates are subject to adjustment.
