Giannis Antetokounmpo’s brother Kostas signs a contract with Chicago Bulls in the NBA

21 September, 2022

Famous NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s younger brother Kostas will be attending the training camp of the Chicago Bulls soon in order to put pen to a two-way contract paper, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

It has also been reported that Malcolm Hill, who had a two-way contract with the Bulls last season, and Carlik Jones, who represented the franchise in the NBA Summer League are also in the running for two-way contracts.

When Justin Lewis of Marquette also went undrafted, the Bulls ended up signing him for a two-way deal. Although Lewis has done well whenever he’s played in the summer league, he suffered the terrible fate of tearing his right anterior cruciate ligament badly during an August workout away from the club and had to have it fixed. The Bulls training camp is set to get underway in September.

Kostas Antetokounmpo, meanwhile, is a tall 6-foot 10-inch power forward who represented the famous Los Angeles Lakers in 15 matches last year. In his career so far, he has actually played 22 games, which also includes the time spent with Dallas Mavericks.

Kostas’ older brother Giannis is a household name in the NBA. He is a six-time All-Star and two-time MVP of the NBA Finals when he helped the Milwaukee Bucks win the title in 2020–21. The biographical sports drama film ‘Rise’ was actually made about the life, struggle, immigration, success, and fame of Giannis and his two younger brothers Kostas and Thanasis.

In an era where loyalty is rare, the ‘Greek Freak’ Giannis has chosen to remain a Milwaukee Bucks fan despite being a free agent.

Even when large teams with considerable financial gravity made lucrative offers, Antetokounmpo held his ground. It is believed that the Greek superstar’s top priority is his family and even though he remains devoted to the Deer District, he accompanies his younger brothers on the voyage.

Kostas and Thanasis, two brothers, have already made progress in the major leagues. On the other hand, the Bucks’ G-League affiliate has welcomed the youngest player, Alex Antetokounmpo.

Giannis has previously admitted that his family is the only thing that could make him want to leave Milwaukee and signing Kostas could be Chicago’s astute plan to secure what is without a doubt the most powerful force of the modern era.
