Alex Antetokounmpo had options to play stateside. The 6-foot-7, 190-pound forward was considered a three-star recruit by Rivals and had interest from Wisconsin, but he announced in May that he would pursue a career in Europe with the aim of eventually going to the NBA.
Giannis has said he’d be eager to team up with his brothers in the NBA at some point. Alex’s move brings that possibility a step closer to happening down the road.
