Report: Giannis Antetokounmpo wanted Bucks to target Bradley Beal during offseason

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Bradley Beal

The Milwaukee Bucks had a busy offseason.

According to Brian Windhorst and Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN, Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo wanted the franchise to target Washington Wizards sharpshooter Bradley Beal.

“In addition to [Bogdan] Bogdanovic, he (Antetokounmpo) cited Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal as a desirable target for the Bucks,” Windhorst and Arnovitz reported. “Without impugning specific teammates, Antetokounmpo was implicitly suggesting what just about everyone in the organization — and the NBA — knew: The Bucks needed to upgrade their backcourt.”

Of course, the Bucks ended up acquiring star guard Jrue Holiday from the New Orleans Pelicans.

The veteran averaged 19.1 points, 6.7 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game last season. He will be a great leader and facilitator on the Bucks.

Still, it’s fun to imagine how great the Bucks would be if they had Beal on their roster.

Beal, 27, is one of the best scorers in the NBA. The guard collected a career-high 30.5 points and 6.1 assists per game last season.

On Tuesday, Antetokounmpo showed his dedication to the Bucks by inking a supermax extension with the franchise.
