Danny Ferry Rumors
Antetokounmpo also described his first time seeing Ferry’s house, where he played ping-pong and chess and ate pasta, and Budenholzer was there for the festivities. Antetokounmpo vowed to work as hard as possible to achieve the same level of riches. “They had this car service,” Antetokounmpo said, describing the scene as he was leaving. “They were joking around with Giorges, ‘We’ll see you in a few, you know? See you in a few days.’ I’m a person that visualized stuff, so I already visualized myself being around Atlanta. So yeah, ‘We’ll see you in a few days, Giannis.’ Yeah, that never happened.”
Since restricted free agency has been implemented, there have been few cases of players demanding trades from teams that drafted them, namely Steve Francis with the Vancouver Grizzlies and Danny Ferry with the Los Angeles Clippers. However, with the value of qualifying offers increasing significantly, and player empowerment breaking new barriers each season, it’s no surprise that public discourse over the possibility of a premier player utilizing the qualifying offer has gotten louder.
