The Milwaukee Bucks’ star center and forward Giannis Antetokounmpo might play for the San Antonio Spurs in the upcoming season.

The player has been one of the best players in the league for a while now. With great power comes a great craving for success, and the Bucks’ star is hungry for more titles. Will joining Spurs help him win one? Here is all the information you need about the trade between the Milwaukee Bucks and the San Antonio Spurs involving Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Why would the Spurs like to sign Giannis Antetokounmpo?
Not only Spurs, but a lot of teams would like to sign Giannis if he is put on the market. The Spurs have just got their breakthrough with the signing of Victor, and they would not like to lose him. Signing Giannis would boost their chances of contending, and that would also mean that Victor does not leave after a season or two.
We all expect New York to trade for a big-name player at some point.
