By Adam Roberts – 8/13/2021

It appears as though the Milwaukee Bucks are taking the approach of Vin Diesel when it comes to Thanasis Antetokounmpo.

“You don’t turn your back on family”

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Milwaukee has agreed to a two-year deal with the older Antetokounmpo brother on the roster. Thanasis┬áplayed in 57 games during the Bucks’ championship season, averaging 2.9 points and 2.2 rebounds. He also appeared in 13 playoff games this postseason for Milwaukee, albeit with minimal time on the floor.

It’s the latest Bucks move this offseason, following the signing of former Buck George Hill and former Grizzlies wing guard Grayson Allen, plus the re-signing of Bobby Portis.
