That player is no other hand Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, who Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst of ESPN suggested was heavily targeted by the Hawks back in the 2013 NBA Draft. The two touched on the subject during a recent episode of The Woj Pod. Here’s a brief transcript of the exchange between the two during the podcast, via Dan Feldman of NBC Sports. Wojnarowski: “That night with Giannis, Atlanta was really – Brian, you both know this. Atlanta was really determined to get him.” Windhorst: “Oh, yes. I’ve listened to Danny Ferry’s sob story about this one.” Wojnarowski: “Danny Ferry, Wes Wilcox were really focused on him.”
“How do I explain — it was not like an interview, it was not like an introduction,” Antetokounmpo told the Journal Sentinel on Thursday at the combine where his younger brother, Kostas, is among the participants. “I was aware that me and Khris were going to talk to him, but I wasn’t aware what decision we made. I just talked to him. We had a private place, a private little area that we went to, me and Khris and Bud. By the way, the food was great there.”
Antetokounmpo is looking forward to getting deeper into Budenholzer’s line of thinking and building a stronger relationship. “It’s exciting,” Antetokounmpo said. “I’d like to get the chance to talk to him again before I start working out. I would love to work out in his plan. I want to see our plays, I want to see the game plan, I want to make myself better through his game. Yeah, I think it’s going to be exciting. I can’t wait to play for him. Hopefully we can win some games.”
