Summary:

Kostas Antetokounmpo is the younger brother of both Milwaukee Bucks’ superstar forward, Giannis Antetokounmpo and former New York Knicks’ player, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, and Kostas is an athletic, 6-10 combo forward that is hoping to follow in their footsteps to the NBA.​

Right now, Kostas Antetokounmpo may have a long way to go on offense, but he has a very good set of tools that could really help him defensively.  Currently, he is a project player that is still learning the game, but with continued development, he could be an intriguing prospect down the road.
