Unless Giannis Antetokounmpo gets tired of playing for the Milwaukee Bucks or has reason to leave them, a potential next stop would be the Chicago Bulls.

Although this is a remote possibility as of this writing, the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player was thrown an interesting question by Fox 32 Chicago on whether he would consider playing for the Bulls in the future.

“I think anybody who is asked that question that plays basketball, if he said no, he would be a liar. It's a team that won multiple championships. It's the team that one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game played for. It's a no-brainer, everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. Maybe I play for Chicago, but right now I am committed to Milwaukee," the one-time NBA champion responded.

The influence is obviously because of Michael Jordan and what “His Airness” brought to the franchise. But given that he signed a five-year $228.2 million deal with the Bucks less than two years ago, seeing that happen may not immediately happen.

Hence, this question would be best raised again by the 2025-26 NBA season. However, there are several factors to consider such as Antetokounmpo being unhappy or probably wanting to play alongside someone on the Bulls squad.

It would be best to take this with a big grain of salt. It is a question that the media may ask players like “The Greek Freak,” although the response would be a polite yes that they may consider it because of the Michael Jordan factor.

However, seeing it – regardless if it is Antetokounmpo or some other budding NBA star – is a different matter.

The 15th overall pick of the 2013 NBA Draft appears pretty much content with the Bucks, a team he led to the 2021 NBA title – already an achievement on its own.
