Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks have until December 21 to finalize a supermax extension, which would add five years onto his current deal and pay the two-time MVP over $220 million. If Giannis doesn’t sign the supermax this season he could become a free agent in the summer.

While the Bucks mortgaged their future to build a brand new roster this offseason it’s still unclear whether Giannis is going to sign the supermax extension before the deadline.
On Wednesday Giannis startled NBA fans when he said he wasn’t “focused” on his contract situation despite the deadline soon coming up.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, when asked about his contract, says: "Right now, I am not focused on that. I am just trying to focus on myself."
He adds that he is leaving those discussions to his agent, Alex Saratsis, and the front office.
