Marc Lasry Confirms Bucks Will Pay Luxury Tax In Meeting With Giannis Antetokounmpo 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Sep 14, 2020 3:53 pm

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Marc Lasry met for a three-hour lunch on Friday to review the Milwaukee Bucks' season and discuss the future of the franchise. 


Larry confirmed the Bucks' willingness to sped into the luxury tax during the meeting while the two also discussed ways the roster can be improved.


Antetokounmpo agreed to meet with Lasry again once he returns from a vacation.


The Bucks were eliminated from the playoffs in the second round by the Miami Heat.


Antetokounmpo will be eligible for a supermax contract extension this offseason and can become a free agent in 2021.

This crap looks suspect. Once he lock up for 5 years, they will tell him they losing money. Giannis needs to understand that 1. The cap shrinking.2- nobody signing in that frigid boring city.3- they are in cap hell with 0 trade value.4- owners are cheap

Agreed! on the other hand though, NO GIANNIS. NO TEAM. NO REVENUE. The impact Giannis has had on the city is similar to that of Vince Carter to Toronto! Without him Wisconsin becomes the dairy capital again. Im betting they give him whatever he asks for.
