Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer is confident that Giannis Antetokounmpo will remain with the team after the summer.

The “Greek Freak” will become a free agent in July 2020 and has already been linked with several teams in the league.

However, coach Budenholzer believes Antetokounmpo will continue play for Milwaukee after the end of the current season.

“I think the team has been incredibly focused, he’s been getting incredibly focused just on each day, getting better, competing with his group and being respectful with what we’ere doing now.

I don’t know maybe there’s more than I realize but he seems in a great place, the group’s in a great place and we’ll hopefully keep it rolling,” Budenholzer told Eric Woodyard of ESPN.

Antetokounmpo, who has been averaging 30.2 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 5.6 assists this season, can sign a supermax contract with the Bucks once the free agency opens in July 2020.
