Over his time with the Milwaukee Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo has worn many hats, including MVP, Defensive Player of the Year, and champion. Might he add the owner to the roster?

Not the Bucks owner, though one should never rule anything out, but rather an international team. Speaking with reporters after Panathinaikos AKTOR Athens’ recent qualifying for the EuroLeague final, Giannis eventually got into a discussion about his potential future ownership endeavors as well as the teams he is presently keeping an eye on.Specifically, he expressed a desire to potentially own Panathinaikos or Olympiacos if their owners were willing to sell. Interestingly, Antetokounmpo noted that he would likely not play for either of those teams due to them not wanting him when he was on the rise as a player, but he didn’t mince words when the prospect of ownership was brought up.

Antetokounmpo noted that it is unlikely he’d get the owners to sell to him at this point, but he’s putting it out there that he’d like to earn that title at some point. Depending on how things shake out throughout the remainder of his career, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Greek Freak even tried getting his name involved with the Bucks ownership group, but it’s too early to think about that quite yet.
