“He is without question one of the best players in the league and the best player in the East. I mean, it’s going to be so thrilling to be on the court with him [and not going up against him]. The most amazing thing about Giannis is, as great of a player he is, he’s an even better teammate. You see him out there with the guys and you look at the kind of leader he’s grown into, it’s really a special thing. It’s unique.”

Antetokounmpo led the Bucks in points, rebounds, blocks and was second in steals and assists last season as he earned his second All-Star Game appearance.

Lopez, who spent last year with the Los Angeles Lakers, adds an interesting wrinkle to Milwaukee’s offense. The seven-footer shot 3-for-31 from behind the arc during his first eight years in the League, but upped that number to 246-for-712, good for 34.6 percent, during his past two seasons.
