Mark Schwarz examines Milwaukee's breakdown in the playoffs and questions whether Giannis Antetokounmpo will want to move on next season. (2:27)

What now for Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks?

This is not how it was supposed to end for the Bucks, who were ousted in the second round of the playoffs after posting the NBA's best regular-season record.

The postseason failure adds a new layer of complexity to Milwaukee's hopes of keeping Antetokounmpo.

The reigning MVP and Defensive Player of the Year will have a big decision to make: sign a $220 million supermax extension that would put him in a Bucks uniform through 2025-26 or seek to leave Milwaukee by trade or free agency.

Let's look at the various outcomes for Giannis.

Note: The financials here are based on the salary cap and luxury tax holding at 2019-20 levels as expected. Dates are subject to adjustment.
