Giannis Antetokounmpo Net Worth: How An NBA Title Will Bump The Star's Bank Account
Giannis Antetokounmpo has made history. He’s become the first basketball player since the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to bring an NBA title to Milwaukee almost 50 years ago!
With all this buzz surrounding the rising NBA superstar’s career, the question of his net worth has also come up.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Giannis has a net worth of $70 million. Of that number, $45 million is in an annual salary. And his salary is only going to get a bump with this recent title win.
He signed a five-year, $228 million extension with the Bucks in December. He also earns some $25 million annually in endorsements, with partners that include Nike, JBL and Budweiser.
The title makes that number climb between $35 million and $40 million based on Antetokounmpo’s success and international appeal, bringing him within range of Stephen Curry.
Antetokonmpo first signed an endorsement deal with Nike back in November 2017. In his first year, he made $35 million. By the time June 2019 rolled around, he was pulling in more than $43 million.
While it’s unclear if he can re-negotiate the Nike contract, what’s clear is that one endorsement alone is worth more than what Forbes is projecting he can earn.
And if Giannis Antetokounmpo is indeed able to re-negotiate his long-term Nike contract now that he has a title under his belt, it can only mean more, and not less, each year.
It remains to be seen if Giannis Antetokounmpo will earn $1 billion while active in the NBA like LeBron James, but he’s certainly on his way.
