What is Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Net Worth?

Giannis Antetokounmpo’s net worth has been estimated by multiple sources at $70 million. While this amount might not be a true reflection of the wealth he has acquired over the years, it is not hard to believe he is worth that much.

Since 2013, the Greek-Nigerian professional basketball player has been receiving millions of dollars annually as his salary for playing in the NBA. Moreso, he has been able to build a brand out of his name, thanks to the fame that followed his exploits in the NBA. This means that Giannis has not only pocketed millions from his in-court performances but also through other means. Disregarding his salary, he has made good money through endorsement deals and partnerships with other popular brands.

All things being equal, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s net worth is expected to rise in the years to come. This is so because his annual salary, based on his current contract with the Bucks, is projected to steadily increase until 2025, when he is expected to pocket nearly $52 million in salary alone. If you consider other sources of income, his net worth is projected to get closer to $100 million by 2025.
