The reigning Kia MVP is eligible to sign a "supermax" extension with the Bucks next summer.

NEW YORK -- The NBA announced today that the Milwaukee Bucks have been fined $50,000 for violating league rules governing the timing of discussions regarding future player contracts and permissible commitments to players. The fine is in response to a public statement made recently by General Manager Jon Horst during a televised team even that Giannis Antetokounmpo "will be offered a supermax extension."

Under NBA rules, teams cannot commit to offer a "supermax" extension prior to the summer following a player's seventh season in the NBA.
