Giannis Antetokounmpo is on the trade watch of many NBA teams. He is one of the best players in the history of the league, and the Milwaukee Bucks don’t want to trade him anytime soon.
Recently, Antetokounmpo passed some comments where he talked about the upcoming season contenders. He said that the Bucks don’t seem to be a contender for the NBA 2023-24 Season, so he would prefer moving to different teams.
After this bold statement, there are 3 teams that could potentially trade for the Greek-Nigerian basketball star Antetokounmpo.

3 Teams Eyeing Giannis Antetokounmpo from the Milwaukee Bucks for Future Trade
1. Toronto Raptors
The first team that could potentially trade for the superstar player from the Milwaukee Bucks is the Toronto Raptors. Antetokounmpo could be their primary playmaker.
However, since the Raptors are rebuilding their roster around the young star Scottie Barnes, it is difficult to digest the fact that they will acquire Antetokounmpo as their primary playmaker.
The Raptors have to give up a lot of their valuable assets in order to acquire the “Greek Freak,” Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Giannis is a potential Hall of Famer
2. San Antonio Spurs
Another team that is eyeing the Bucks’ superstar is the San Antonio Spurs. They have recently acquired Victor Wembanaya, and they could pair him with Antetokounmpo to make their own dominant duo in the league.
It is safe to assume that the Spurs could be an ideal title contender for the upcoming season if they acquire Giannis in the trade deal from the Bucks.

Another team that wants to acquire Giannis Antetokounmpo is the Oklahoma City Thunder. Every team wants to acquire a superstar player like Ginnis, but it is not everyone’s cup of coffee to afford such a valuable player.
If they acquire Antetokounmpo from the Bucks, the Bucks would probably ask for multiple first-round picks in return. The Thunder could pair the “All-Star Game MVP” with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to make the most talented duo in the league.
