Giannis Antetokounmpo has gone on the record to state he will not request a trade from the Milwaukee Bucks this offseason.
“It’s not happening. That’s not happening,” Antetokounmpo told Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.
“Some see a wall and go in [another direction]. I plow through it. We just have to get better as a team, individually and get right back at it next season.”
Antetokounmpo is eligible for a super-max extension this offseason that is expected to be worth around $254 million over five years.
“If winning a championship was easy, everyone would have one,” Antetokounmpo said. “We lost. Everyone saw that we lost. It’s disappointing, but what are we going to do? We’re going to keep working. I’ve got confidence in my teammates.”
