Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
The Latvian rookie sensation had also some interesting things to say about his hosts, Giannis and Thanasis Antetokounmpo. “What Giannis is doing on the basketball court is unbelievable. Those long steps, Euro-steps, I don’t that there’s anybody who can do those moves that well that he is doing it. His lenght and athleticism all together, he is pretty much unstoppable. He is getting better every year so it’s pretty scary”. As for his former teammate in the Knicks, Thanasis, and if he can be an established player in the NBA, he added: “I believe so. I believe that what will establish Thanasis in the NBA is his work ethic. He is an unbelievable worker. He doesn’t stop working ever. And that’s what’s going to take him to the next level and keep him there”.
Charles F. Gardner: League source disputes Zanik being termed “GM-in-waiting” for Bucks. Move provides more options for Bucks going forward.
The Bucks are moving toward a contract extension with Kidd as coach, league sources said.
The Milwaukee Bucks are hiring Utah Jazz executive Justin Zanik as the franchise’s general manager-in-waiting, league sources told The Vertical. Zanik, an assistant general manager with Utah, will join the Bucks with a similar job title – and an agreement that he will eventually become the successor to Milwaukee GM John Hammond, sources said.
A timetable on the succession plan is still unclear, sources said. Utah GM Dennis Lindsey was agreeable in letting Zanik make the move because the initial assistant GM role comes with the provision that Zanik will become the Bucks’ top basketball executive, league sources said.
