Bucks fined $50K for comments about offering Giannis “supermax”

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Milwaukee Bucks have been fined $50,000 for GM Jon Horst’s comments regarding a contract extension for Giannis Antetokounmpo.

At a Bucks’ fan event, Horst told a crowd of fans that they will offer Giannis a five-year, nearly $250M supermax extension when he is eligible in the summer of 2020.

In a statement on Tuesday, the NBA wrote “Under NBA rules, teams cannot commit to offer a ‘supermax’ extension prior to the summer following a player’s seventh season in the NBA.”
