Over the last few weeks, Milwaukee Bucks fans have been worried about the future plans of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Antetokounmpo made some statements about his commitment to winning.
He said that if the Bucks weren’t as committed as he was, he might move along to another team in the league.
And there are quite a few that would be eager to sign him.
According to ESPN, via NBACentral, five teams are “expected to monitor” Antetokounmpo’s situation.
Those teams are the New Orleans Pelicans, Toronto Raptors, Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, and Golden State Warriors.

Of course, every team in the NBA wants Antetokounmpo but those are the teams that have the most draft capital and talent to trade for him if he leaves before his contract with the Bucks is over.
There is no doubt that every team would have to give up a lot to land Antetokounmpo.
People should also consider which team Antetokounmpo wants to go to.
He has made it very clear that he wants to win another championship so he will wish to move to a squad that can help him do that.
Of these teams, which is best set up to make a championship run in the next few years?
Would it be the Warriors, who have already won so much in the past?
Perhaps it’s the Knicks, who have been slowly assembling a strong core over the last few years?
Maybe the Pelicans can finally break through and win a championship.
Do the Raptors or Nets have enough to entice Antetokounmpo?
We don’t know how long Antetokounmpo will remain with the Bucks or if he will ever actually leave.
But if he does pack his bags, one of these teams could become his destination.NEXT: Shannon Sharpe Calls Out Giannis Antetokounmpo Over His Brothers
