As of right now, Giannis Antetokounmpo is the most important player for the Milwaukee Bucks.
But where will he be in a few seasons?
A lot of changes could be on the horizon for the team just two years after their big championship win.
Is there a possibility that Antetokounmpo could choose to move to another team?
If he does, Stephen A. Smith believes he might head east to the New York Knicks.
“I don’t rule out the possibility of Giannis wanting to come to New York at all,” Smith said on Friday’s First Take.

Smith mentioned some of the nagging problems in Milwaukee that could make Antetokounmpo want to leave the Bucks.
He then mentioned the prestige, money, and attention that comes with playing in big city markets.
Smith claims that if Antetkounmpo wants to make an even bigger name for himself and doesn’t choose Los Angeles, he might decide to have the next stage of his career with the Knicks.
The Knicks are looking much better than they were just a few seasons ago.
Their recent run will surely catch the attention of some players in the league.
But Antetokounmpo has remained very loyal to his Bucks since the start of his career.
Even with the problems they’ve had lately, it would take a lot to make Antetokounmpo want to leave Milwaukee.
At least that’s what the fans are hoping.
The team just fired their head coach so it’s clear things will be different next season.
Will it be enough to appease Antetokounmpo and get the squad back on track?
Or will he start to think about leaving Milwaukee in the upcoming years?NEXT: Jayson Tatum Makes It Clear How He Views The MVP Award
