According to Tim Bontemps of ESPN, his sources "have emphatically said Milwaukee will not look to trade [Giannis] Antetokounmpo if he passes on the extension."
As opposed to trading the MVP, the Bucks "will try to improve their roster and use the next year to show Antetokounmpo why he should stay" in that scenario. The risk of letting him walk for nothing would be astronomical when you consider the potential return they could get in a trade, but you can't fault them for wanting to do everything in their power to keep Giannis in Milwaukee. Giannis has said many times that he has no intention of leaving and we expect the Bucks to be very active in free agency and the trade market to re-tool their roster to Giannis' satisfaction.
