Will Giannis Antetokounmpo leave the Bucks and choose to play for the Dallas Mavericks?

Giannis leaving Milwaukee will be a topic of conversation until he makes his decision. Without a long-term deal in place, every team in the NBA will dream of acquiring the back-to-back MVP. Getting a true read on what Giannis wants to do next is difficult, but I’d lean slightly on him staying with the Bucks.

Odds Giannis Antetokounmpo leaves the Bucks before the start of the 2021-2022 season: 40 percent

If the Greek Freak decides he wants to play for a specific team, expect them to create the cap space to make it work. That could mean dumping contracts or trading for another star like the Clippers did last offseason. Right now, the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors look like the Mavericks’ biggest competition on the market. Other teams will join that conversation, though.

The Mavs deserve strong odds in signing the Greek Freak if he decides to leave Milwaukee. Star players are going to want to play with Luka Doncic. He is unquestionably the league’s best young superstar. That could be key in signing Antetokounmpo in 2021.
