It will be interesting to see if the Bucks find rotation minutes for Thanasis Antetokounmpo at some point this season. The physical intangibles that he brings to the game are intriguing to see and are obviously reminiscent of the reigning MVP given that they are related to each other. The franchise-centerpiece would probably appreciate playing more alongside his brother as well.
Last season, Thanasis appeared in just two games with the New York Knicks and has spent most of his professional basketball career in the G League. He seems to have at least solidified himself as worthy of a spot on an NBA active roster.
