The head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, Mike Budenholzer, referred to the participation of Giannis Antetokounmpo to the 2019 Basketball World Cup.

The experienced coach said it is an honour for the “Greek Freak” to play in the World Cup, while Milwaukee will monitor his presence in China, as the Bucks’ training camp will start 10 days after the end of the World Cup.
