Giannis Antetokounmpo to the Bulls Rumors

Giannis Antetokounmpo has already had one of the most successful NBA careers in his short time. This multi-time MVP has done the impossible and brought Milwaukee a championship. The Bucks have been nothing but loyal to him and surrounded him with great talent. The big three of Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday, and Khris Middleton have paired nicely and could see even more future success. With that in mind, what if Antetokounmpo did go to the Bulls?

Giannis Antetokounmpo to the Bulls Rumors

Where the Rumors Started

Antetokounmpo recently had an interview with Fox 32 Chicago where they asked him his opinion on joining the Bulls later in his career. Antetokounmpo believed that anyone who said no to playing for the Bulls would be considered a liar. It’s hard not to be enticed to play for a team with such a deep history.

So far, Antetokounmpo has quite the resume. He’s made six All-NBA teams, and five All-Defensive teams, is a champion, a two-time MVP, and is a Defensive Player of the Year. It’s possible that him seeing success in Chicago could be very Michael Jordan-esque in which his accolades would start to stack up quickly. Antetokounmpo is already a sure-fire Hall of Famer, but this would merely be fuel to the fire of his success.

When Would Antetokounmpo Join the Bulls?

Antetokounmpo has four years left on his contract at this point. After this, he would be an unrestricted free agent and only be 31 years old. He would be young enough to still compete for a title if he elects to leave for Chicago once his contract is up. The Bucks have limited draft capital after the Holiday trade and at that point, Holiday will be 36. Middleton would be 35 at that point too.

With everyone around Antetokounmpo aging and no true draft capital to bring in another star, his best bet might be to abandon ship. This offseason Zach LaVine signed a 5-year max contract with Chicago. Antetokounmpo could team up with Lavine as a second star in order to bring success back to Chicago basketball.
