It’s fitting that a traditional point guard isn’t the one currently leading all Milwaukee Bucks in total assists, because his likely challenger also isn’t a point guard. Paul Pressey got 3,272 assists as a Buck.
Giannis Antetokounmpo already has 702 of them in three years, with only a few months of that time seeing Giannis play as a point forward. He averaged 7.2 assists after the All-Star break last season in that role.
Even assuming a down-grade to six assists per game, Giannis could rack up over 2,800 assists in six seasons. With the 700 he already has, that means the Greek Freak could be Milwaukee’s new assists leader before he turns 30.
Michael Carter-Williams tallied over 400 assists in just 79 games with Milwaukee so far, but it’d take a lot for him to ever challenge Pressey for that title. Especially with the ball being placed in Giannis’ hands going forward, it’s unlikely that anyone besides Antetokounmpo will be able to supplant Pressey.
