The team opened the 2019-20 season with aspirations of bringing an National Basketball Association title to Milwaukee for the first time since 1971 and posted the NBA's best record but were eliminated by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals in five games. They had a better team on paper, especially with Giannis Antetokounmpo in their squad.

Antetokounmpo and Lasry have agreed to talk further after Antetokounmpo returns from vacation. He told reporters, "That's not happening", in response to questions about forcing a trade. "I plow through it", he said. They also explored potential personnel upgrades that may be available to the franchise this upcoming offseason.

The report also says the Bucks plan to bring back coach Mike Budenholzer, who has been at the helm in Milwaukee since 2018.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Rumors

While it made headlines that Antetokounmpo unfollowed the Bucks and his teammates, this isn't the first time he has made adjustments to his social media accounts.

Antetokounmpo, 25, has a year remaining on his contract, and he is eligible for a super-max extension this offseason that is expected to be worth around $254 million over five years.

Despite his firm promises about staying in Milwaukee, Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was sending mixed messages over the weekend.
