I New York Knicks are experiencing noticeable growth in recent seasons.
Now the Big Apple franchise seems intent on taking one more step to become a true contender. In the management’s ideas, the ideal player to go even higher would be. Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Second SNY the Greek would no longer be so convinced to stay with the Milwaukee Bucks for life and has not yet begun listening to offers to renew his contract that expires in 2025. That’s why the Knicks could go on the offensive in the coming months, being able to put four future first-round picks already acquired, in addition to those they are rightfully entitled to. In addition, the Knicks have several interesting players on their roster who do not draw high salaries, elements that would allow Milwuakee to create a very interesting “side dish” and have the salary space to make an assault on a star to replace Giannis.
For the moment there are no negotiations but New York would be planning its future with the goal of getting to Antetokounmpo, either via trade or even at the expiration of his current deal. Recall that in the upcoming season the Greek phenom over $45 million, next year he will touch $48 million, and he holds a nearly $52 million player option for the 2025/26 season.
