Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is also the co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, won it big on Tuesday after they secured Giannis Antetokounmpo with a supermax extension. In an interview with the Pat McAfee Show soon after the deal was announced, Rodgers clearly looked like a happy man. He believes the Bucks’ offseason moves helped convince Antetokounmpo to sign the five-year, $228 million deal, the most lucrative contract in NBA history. “It’s a big signing for us. We’re pretty ecstatic, I guess he is too, I would assume. This is conjecture, but I know he was interested in what the roster turnover was going to be. Made some moves in the off-season, brought in some players. I guess he is happy with them so far.”
