The Milwaukee Bucks have signed NBA Champion and two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to a multi-year extension.

“Milwaukee is where I started my career, it’s our home, it’s where we’re raising our family, and it’s where I’m going to continue to work hard every day to make Bucks fans proud,” said Antetokounmpo.

“I want to thank Bucks owners Wes, Jamie, Jimmy and Dee for their continuous support of me and my family, and I want to express my appreciation to Jon Horst for being a trusted partner who has been with me since the day I arrived in Milwaukee 10 years ago. To my teammates and coaches, I will always be grateful to you for inspiring me to be my best every day. Together, we are committed to winning and bringing another championship to our city. And to Bucks fans, let’s get it!”

Antetokounmpo, 28, is entering his 11th season in the NBA – all with the Bucks – and is an NBA Champion, two-time MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, seven-time All-NBA honoree, seven-time All-Star, NBA Finals MVP and member of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team.

He’s also a five-time All-Defensive team selection, a Most Improved Player, and the Bucks’ all-time leader in points, assists, blocks, triple-doubles, and games played.

“Giannis embodies greatness through his unmatched work-ethic, character, leadership and relentless desire to be the best, and we are beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to win with him and his family,” said Bucks general manager Jon Horst.

“He’s an incredible player and person who gives so much to our community and our fans. It’s important to recognize Wes, Jamie, Jimmy and Dee for their unwavering and ongoing support and investment in championship basketball in Milwaukee. This is a historic occasion for the Bucks, our city and our great fans.”
