Giannis Antetokounmpo aka “The Greek Freak” inked a major deal with the Milwaukee Bucks for four years, $100 million, just slightly less than the maximum salary.

The contract extension is just slightly less than the max which is $106 million over four years, and contains no options.

via ESPN:

It’s a strong deal for the Bucks, who lock up the multitalented young star and leave their five-year designated player slot open for possible use on Jabari Parker next year when he is eligible to sign an extension.

In contract talks that played out over the summer, Antetokounmpo expressed a willingness to take slightly less than the max in an effort to help the Bucks retain their young core, sources said.

Antetokounmpo averaged 17.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists last season. The Bucks are planning to use Antetokounmpo, dubbed the Greek Freak, at point guard at times this upcoming season.
