Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo signs ‘$228.2m’ deal – the biggest in NBA history:

During his career, Giannis may earn more than LeBron James, but remain without a title.

The news on everyone’s mind on Tuesday evening is the signing of a new contract by Giannis Antetokounmpo with Milwaukee Bucks. In five years, starting from the 2021/22 season, the 26-year-old forward will earn $228 Million, close to £169.9 Million.

This is the biggest ever contract in NBA history.

The previous record holder was Russell Westbrook, who signed a $ 207 million deal with Oklahoma in 2017.

“This is my home, this is my city.. I’m blessed to be able to be a part of the Milwaukee Bucks for the next 5 years. Let’s make these years count. The show goes on, let’s get it.” – said Antetokounmpo on social media.
