NBA Fines Bucks’ GM For Saying Giannis Antetokounmpo Will Be Offered A Supermax Contract

This offseason, the NBA announced that they are taking measures to stipulate stricter fines for tampering.

The first offense came on Tuesday, when the league fined the Milwaukee Bucks $50,000 for comments GM Jon Horst made recently regarding Giannis Antetokounmpo’s coming contract extension, when the team plans on, unsurprisingly, offering him a supermax on July 1 of 2020.

Under rules spelled out in the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, organizations aren’t allowed to commit to giving a player a supermax until the summer after his seventh season, which means next summer for Giannis.
