BREAKING: Knicks call up Thanasis Antetokounmpo


The Greek Freak’s brother is coming to the NBA.

The Knicks have signed Thanasis Antetokounmpo to a 10-day contract, and he will join the NBA roster on Friday. Antetokounmpo was selected by the Knicks in the 2nd round of the 2014 NBA Draft and has played on their D-League team in Westchester, waiting for his chance.

Thanasis’ younger brother Giannis is a rising star for the Milwaukee Bucks. Thanasis isn’t as skilled, but has incredible athleticism and a very high motor. He should make an impact on defense right away.
