Larry confirmed the Bucks' willingness to sped into the luxury tax during the meeting while the two also discussed ways the roster can be improved.

The Bucks payroll will reportedly be close to the proposed $132.7 million luxury tax threshold for 2020-2021, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. "I think part of it is we know we're going to be in it". That's not the question.

Antetokounmpo firmly denied he planned to force a trade shortly after Milwaukee lost to the Miami Heat, ending its postseason hopes.

The meeting between Antetokounmpo and Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry took place on Saturday afternoon, Haynes reported, the same day the reigning NBA MVP unfollowed hundreds of people on Twitter and Instagram - including all of his teammates and the Bucks' official team account.
