Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo refuses to rule out future move to rival Chicago Bulls: ‘It’s a no-brainer, anyone would love to play for them’

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo admitted he “maybe” will play for Chicago in the future
  • The former NBA Finals MVP has been effusive in his praise of the Bulls franchise
  • Milwaukee dominated the Bulls in their playoff series last season, winning 4-1

Giannis Antetokounmpo has risen from NBA anonymity to global stardom in a Milwaukee Bucks uniform.

It’s almost unbelievable to imagine him wearing someone else’s shirt. The operative word is almost.

Speak with Fox 32 Chicagoduring an ambassador promotion, when asked if he could see himself in a Bulls uniform in the future, the Greek freak gave a somewhat reassuring reply.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (R) has four more years of contract, which he signed in 2021

“I think anyone you ask that question to who plays basketball would be a liar if they said no,” Antetokounmpo said.

“It’s a team that has won multiple championships; It’s a team that has one of the greatest, if not the greatest, players to ever play this game.

“So it’s a no-brainer; Everyone would love to play for Chicago.

The Bulls haven't won a league title since 1998, when Michael Jordan played

“The bottom line is you never know. I might play for Chicago, but right now I’m committed to Milwaukee.”

Antetokounmpo is still tied to a lengthy contract at Milwaukee, with his five-year, $228 million extension remaining four years away.

The Greek native signed the Max contract before winning the Finals as MVP as the Bucks won the 2021 NBA Championship.

The Bulls could certainly use Antetokounmpo in their squad. Too often he was a thorn in Chicago’s side.

Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee past the Bulls by averaging 28.6 points, 13.4 rebounds and 6.2 assists in a five-game streak in the first round of last season’s playoffs.
