On March 29, head coach Jason Kidd named (Giannis) Antetokounmpo as the Bucks’ point guard heading into next season, which implicitly brought questions about what (Michael)Carter-Williams’ role will be as he enters the final year of his rookie contract. Carter-Williams believes he and Antetokounmpo, who are good friends off the court, can coexist on it.
“I think this Giannis playing point guard next year got a little out of hand,” Carter-Williams said during exit interviews Thursday. “I think he is definitely going to control the ball a lot more, but he’s not going to guard a point guard. I’ll be guarding the point guard.”
