If Giannis Antetokounmpo decides to hand in a trade request, multiple NBA teams will look to sign him. However, in a post-match interview after the defeat, the mercurial power forward confirmed that he is going to stay and help Milwaukee Bucks compete for a championship. This is good news for Bucks as they will keep hold of last season's MVP in all likelihood. 

The Milwaukee Bucks have been excellent in the regular season for two straight years, finishing as the number one seed in the Eastern Conference both the times. But they have struggled in the playoffs, losing to Toronto Raptors last season followed by a gentleman's sweep at the hands of Miami Heat this year.

According to NBA trade rumors, the only way Milwaukee Bucks can convince Giannis to stay is to win a championship. The Bucks have struggled without an accomplished point guard, with Eric Bledsoe being there best option. Multiple NBA trade rumors suggest that the Bucks would benefit from the inclusion of veteran point guard Chris Paul in their squad.

Chris Paul had a great year with OKC Thunder, finishing fifth in the tough Western Conference and taking NBA championship contenders Houston Rockets to seven games in the playoffs. According to NBA trade rumors, Paul will be looking for a new challenge next season.

If the Bucks are unable to sign Chris Paul, the other options will be Dennis Schröder, Patty Mills, or Derrick Rose. The 2020 free agency class is weak, and Paul looks like the only player who can move the needle for the Bucks. An experienced point guard is the need of the hour, and Chris Paul has all the attributes the Bucks need in their backcourt in order to win an NBA championship.
