Warriors have most to offer for Giannis Antetokounmpo, per Ramona Shelburne


Reigning back-to-back MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo has been on top of free agency headlines for the past year. The 25-year old will be a free agent come 2021 and rumors have ramped up about his possible departure from the Milwaukee Bucks after the Bucks have failed to make it past the Eastern Conference Finals even with Antetokounmpo having consecutive monster seasons.

The Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks have been thrown into the rumor mill as potential destinations for Giannis but per ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, it’s actually the Golden State Warriors who might have the best offer for the Bucks.

“If the Bucks do look to trade Giannis, from where I’m sitting, the Warriors would have the best package to offer.” Shelburne told the Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show on 95.7 The Game.

Though teams will probably throw everything they can to jump at the opportunity to snag the reigning MVP, Golden State does seem to have quite an interesting package to offer to the Bucks in exchange for their franchise player. After virtually tanking this past season, the Warriors were able to snag the second overall pick in the upcoming 2020 NBA draft. They also have fresh talent like Andrew Wiggins and Eric Paschal who both had a promising debut season in Bay Area. And, if that’s not enough, Bob Myers might even have to go as far as possibly including Draymond Green or even Klay Thompson just to have a decent shot in creating a potential monster duo by pairing Giannis with two-time MVP Stephen Curry.

Time is ticking for Giannis in Cream City and if the Bucks end up with less than an NBA championship in the coming season, look for everyone to make their move to secure Giannis. And, don’t be surprised if the Warriors do come out on top.
