Milwaukee Bucks Sign Antetokounmpo

Perhaps the Milwaukee Bucks have been hearing the rumors, and the words straight from Giannis Antetokounmpo's mouth—that his re-signing an extension with them next year isn't a slam dunk. So today, the Bucks have gone out and appealed to Giannis' family ties once again, bringing in the youngest Antetokounmpo brother, Alex.  

Alex joins Giannis and older brother Thanasis on the Bucks. 

The youngest of the trio, Alex is just 22, and has spent most of the past two seasons in the G League. With the Raptors 905 in 2021-22, he only managed to get into eight minutes per game, and averaged 2.6 points. Last year, with the Wisconsin Herd, the Bucks had a closer eye on him, as Alex played 22 minutes per contest over 32 games, and averaged 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds. 

The terms of the deal to sign the 6'8" Alex A. haven't been released, but it's likely an Exhibit 10 for training camp, and a non-guaranteed contract. He's expected to return to the Herd in the G League for the coming season as he'll be hard-pressed to crack the Bucks roster out of camp. 

But it's another move by Milwaukee to show Giannis that they have his family interests at heart.
