Giannis Antetokounmpo’s youngest brother Alex has decided to forgo college and instead will play professionally in Europe.
The younest Antetokounmpo is a 6-foot-7 small forward who graduated from Dominican High School in Milwaukee and previously held offers from DePaul, Ohio and Green Bay.
While speaking with EuroHoops.net on Saturday, Alex explained his decision to turn pro.
“I am examining my options, I have a few choices from the States, but I have decided to play in Europe,” he told EuroHoops.net.
“I want to become a pro as soon as possible. I was born and raised in Europe, I know European basketball and the best thing for me would be to sign a contract with a European club.”
Alex had a very strong senior season which saw him post 20 points and 7 rebounds per game along with being named a first-team all-state selection.
The youngster will be eligible for next year’s NBA draft.
If he makes it to the league, he will join his three older brothers with both Giannis and Thanasis playing for the Bucks, along with Kostas who plays for the Lakers.
