Knicks Sign Thanasis Antetokounmpo

The NY Knicks have signed Thanasis Antetokounmpo, older brother of Bucks forward Giannis aka The Greek Freak to a two-year deal as per ESPN’s Ian Begley.

“The Knicks drafted Antetokounmpo, the older brother of Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo, late in the second round of the 2014 draft.Somewhat surprisingly, Antetokounmpo decided to turn down a two-year, $550,000 deal overseas last summer to play for the Knicks’ D-League team, which paid him $25,000.Antetokounmpo’s patience has now been rewarded with an NBA contract.”

Last season with the D-League Westchester Knicks. Antetokounmpo averaged 13.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.7 blocks per game.
