Marc Berman of the New York Post writes that the Knicks "may have ruined their chances" to acquire Giannis Antetokounmpo.
"[W]e know Antetokounmpo was disappointed with the franchise when it didn’t give his brother, Thanasis, a 2013 second-round pick, a chance," Berman writes. The Knicks were also reportedly the only team who didn't send a scout to Greece to watch Giannis prior to the 2013 draft, a charge the Knicks refute. Either way, Berman concludes, "Antetokounmpo seems to want to stay in Milwaukee when he becomes a 2021 free agent, but only if the Bucks stand as a title contender." May 16 10:01 am (EST)
