Thanasis Antetokounmpo, 21 Years Old, D-League, International (Greece)

Position: SF Height, Weight, Wingpsan: 6’7″, 215lbs, 6’8″

The Skinny: The brother of “The Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo, Thanasis Antetokounmpo left Europe to join his brother, who was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks, and joined the D-League in preparation for the 2014 NBA Draft.

Thanasis, who is 21 years old, does not possess the same freakish length or potential of his younger brother, but by his own merits is an intriguing prospect in the latter half of the draft. He played all 50 games for the Delaware 87ers in the D-League this season, averaging 12.02 points, 4.26 rebounds, 2.12 assists, 1.16 steals and 1.3 blocks.

He made the All-Defensive Third Team and improved throughout the season, finishing the year in impressive fashion. While the name on the back of the jersey will immediately grab attention, Antetokounmpo has the defensive potential and athletic ability to warrant the interest.
