Yet Another Antetokounmpo Brother In The News

For the second time in the last few days, the Milwaukee Bucks have signed, then immediately waived a player. This time it's one of the Antetokounmpo family. 

Just a day after the news that Kostas Antetokounmpo has signed on with an Eastern Conference rival, Alex, the youngest of the Antetokounmpo brothers has made a bit of news of his own. The Bucks have signed, then immediately waived him, for the purpose of making him eligible for a $50,000 bonus if he spends at least 60 days with the Wisconsin Herd, Milwaukee's G League affiliate.

The Herd acquired the youngest Antetokounmpo's rights back in July, in a deal with the Raptors 905. 

Now, though, having signed the Exhibit 10 contract (before being waived), he is eligible for that bonus in the G League. The Raptors did the same thing with him a year ago, signing him and then waiving him two days later. 

With the Raptors 905 team last year, Alex A. only got into 15 regular season games, and played just under eight minutes per game, averaging just 2.6 points and 1.4 rebounds. 

Hopefully, the 21-year-old will get a bit more run with the Herd this season. Regardless, three of the four hoops-playing Antetokounmpo brothers now reside in the Bucks organization. Thanasis, 30, is the eldest, and is also with the big club along with Giannis. It's 'all in the family' for the Bucks. 

The Bucks did the exact same sign-and-waive maneuver with another player just a few days earlier.
