NBA Rumors: Signing Giannis Antetokounmpo Should Be Lakers’ ‘Plan A’ In 2021, Per ‘Forbes’

As noted by Bleacher Report last week, Milwaukee Bucks general manager Jon Horst suggested that the team is planning to offer superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo a supermax contract extension when he becomes eligible for such a deal in 2020.
