If Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo reaches free agency next offseason, the Knicks will have a top contender to sign him.
A Thursday morning report from Athletic’s Shams Charania said the Miami Heat are “all in on” to pursue Antetokounmpo.
The note has emerged as a reason for Miami’s upcoming decisions to take this offseason regarding three free agents and the big man eligible for the Bam Adebayo extension.
According to Charania, Adebayo, 23, could be expensive. The Heat could pass a new deal with the cap room in mind for Antetokounmpo.
Antetokounmpo, whose 26th birthday is December 6, enters the final season of a four-year deal worth $ 100 million in 2020-21.
What it ultimately does remains to be seen. Antetokounmpo has yet to sign an extension with the Bucks, but his most recent comments have helped him stay in Milwaukee.
