The Bucks sign Thanasis, the eldest of the Antetokounmpo clan

The Milwaukee franchise is made with Thanasis Antetokounmpo, elder brother of the current NBA MVP. It comes from playing with the Greek Panathinaikos.


The surname Antetokounmpo will resonate twice on the loudspeakers of the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. In a move to increase the strength of the inside game, the Bucks have decided to take Thanasis Antetokounmpo, the older brother of the recently named MVP of the NBA regular season Giannis. This power forward of 2.01 meters in height, which will turn 27 in the middle of the month, has signed a contract for the next two seasons and 3 million dollars with the Wisconsin franchise, as announced Shams Charania (The Athletic).

The eldest of the Antetokounmpo brothers disembarks in the NBA from the Greek Panathinaikos, team in which he has played the last two courses. In the past Euroleague has played a total of 29 games, 9 of them coming out in the initial quintet, which has averaged 4.2 points and 1.8 rebounds. He also has experience in the ACB and a brilliant previous step by the NBA. Before reaching the Athenian block played a season in Andorra, and a year before came to debut with the New York Knicks (average 3 points in 2 games) after playing on his affiliate team in the development league.

Now he gets a second chance in the best league in the world and will fight to improve their numbers and earn more minutes on the track. Motivation will not be lacking because it will play next to his brother. And coincidentally are not the only brothers playing in the team as the franchise has also opted to renew the contract to Brook Lopez and sign his twin Robin. Two pairs of brothers, the newcomers with secondary role, to close the Milwaukee ring.
