Nigerian-Born Giannis Antetokounmpo Signs Richest NBA Contract In History

| How Africa News


Giannis Antetokounmpo has agreed to a $228.2 million, five-year supermax extension with the Bucks.


The deal keeps the 26-year-old defending two-time MVP and Defensive Player of the Year with Milwaukee through at least 2025.


His contract reportedly includes a player option for the 2025–26 season, giving Antetokounmpo the opportunity to sign another megadeal as he enters his 30s.


So for the whole duration of his current contract he is getting 255,6 millions little less than Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers who gets $257 million over six years.

But the 228,2 millions he signed for the extension is indeed the biggest contract in the NBA history.


The per-year average of Antetokounmpo’s contract ($45.6 million) also eclipses the deal recently signed by LeBron James, which averages $44.5 million per season. In 2025-26, Antetokounmpo is set to make a league-record $51.9 million.
