Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - The Milwaukee Bucks announced the signing of
rookie forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, the team's first-round pick in this
year's NBA Draft, on Tuesday.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
The 18-year-old Antetokounmpo was taken by the Bucks with the 15th overall
selection following a promising season with Filathlitikos in his native
Greece, during which the 6-foot-9 project averaged 9.5 points, 5.0 rebounds
and 1.4 assists over 26 games.
Antetokounmpo is expected to begin his NBA career as a deep reserve on a
Milwaukee roster that also added veterans Carlos Delfino, O.J. Mayo and Gary
Neal to bolster the wing positions during the offseason.
