 The Milwaukee Bucks extended their franchise player in Giannis Antetokounmpo to a lucrative deal over the next four seasons worth $100 mil, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. 

 Since being drafted 15th overall in 2013 NBA Draft, the 21-year-old forward has grown a lot since entering the league. He has grown into a more rounded player by displaying elite athleticism and becoming one of the next big superstars in the NBA.

 In addition, the better he gets the more minutes and shot attempts he receives. In a three-year span, his minutes rose by 10.7 minutes and his shots went from 5.4 attempts to 12.7. 

 Now, last year the versatile Greek native had a career year. He averaged 16.9 points, 1.4 blocks, 1.2 steals, 4.3 assists, and 7.7 rebounds per game. Those were all career highs and also his field goal percentage, which sat at 50 percent. 

 Finally, the Bucks are paying the young sensation by hoping he continues to develop into the player that he could become. Expect him to be a MVP candidate this year and to stuff the stat sheet like a squirrel collecting all the acorns.
