Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has been with the Bucks since his draft in 2013. However, since the current reigning NBA MVP does not have an NBA championship yet, fans have started asking 'When is Giannis Antetokounmpo a free agent?'. Giannis, who is currently on a four-year contract with the Bucks, will enter free agency in 2021. Throughout the NBA 2019-20 season, there have been rumours of the Greek forward playing for the Golden State Warriors. Giannis is currently on a break as the NBA was suspended after Rudy Gobert tested positive with COVID-19.

NBA reports have also hinted at Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks want to sign Giannis in 2021. However, the Warriors might offer the Bucks the Timberwolves' first-round draft pick and Wiggins in return. If Giannis chooses to sign an extension, the massive Wiggins trade could prove to be useful for the Warriors. The Warriors also have their highly-drafted lottery selection this year, as a result of their disastrous NBA 2019-20 season. However, reports also stated that the odds of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Giannis Antetokounmpo playing on the same team appear slim.
