Antetokounmpo poised to handle ball, bigger load, for Bucks

MILWAUKEE (AP) Giannis Antetokounmpo has a new contract extension and likely a lot more responsibility once the Milwaukee Bucks open the season.

The athletic, 6-foot-11 matchup nightmare will start with a full season as a full-time ball-handler. It's the latest step forward for a fourth-year player who has come a long way from the raw 19-year-old rookie from Greece picked 15th overall by the Bucks in 2013.

"Since Giannis has arrived, he has done everything he can possibly do to become the best player he could become," general manager John Hammond said. "We have full faith and confidence in Giannis (that it's) not going to stop."
