One of the main storylines to follow in the upcoming NBA season is what happens with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Everyone knew that this would be a team to watch in 2023-24.
But that is even more true now, as Giannis Antetokounmpo has made suggestions that he could leave in the future if they don’t find a lot of postseason success soon.
Reporting for Stadium, Sham Charania summed up the actions the Bucks took in the offseason.
He noted that they have made some strong moves and that there will be a lot of pressure on this team to deliver.

The team added a few names in the summer, such as Robin Lopez and Malik Beasley, who could really help them with shooting.
They also re-signed Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez.
Those two re-signings were the most important of the offseason and they will go a long way to keeping Antetokounmpo happy.
Now the team needs to perform and live up to its potential or face the consequences.
The problem for the Bucks is that they are already one of the best teams in the NBA, yet Antetokounmpo is still toying with the idea of leaving.
They finished 2022-23 as the top seed in the East.
Yes, they had a horrible postseason that sent them home in the first round but they are clearly a terrific team.
But Antetokounmpo has still made public comments about possibly leaving, showing that his only true measure of success is winning the Finals.
Therefore, the Bucks have a huge task ahead of them in the new season.
If they don’t go all the way, rumors about Antetokounmpo leaving will only grow.
