Bucks’ G League team adds Alex Antetokounmpo

News

The Wisconsin Herd, the G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks, acquired Alex Antetokounmpo via trade on Monday, putting the youngest Antetokounmpo brother in the same organization as brothers Giannis and Thanasis.

Alex Antetokounmpo appeared in 15 games for the Toronto Raptors‘ G League affiliate in 2021-22, averaging 2.6 points and 1.3 rebounds on 50% shooting in about 7 minutes per game.

He has yet to make his NBA debut but formed a three-man team with Giannis and Thanasis for the 2022 NBA All-Star Skills Challenge in Cleveland.

Along with Alex Antetokounmpo, the Herd also acquired a second-round pick in the 2023 NBA G League draft in exchange for the player rights to Jalen Lecque.

Alex Antetokounmpo, who turns 21 next month, attended high school in Milwaukee and twice earned all-state honors before leaving to go play in Europe after high school. He spent one season playing internationally before going undrafted and joining the G League in 2021.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been with the Bucks since the 2013-14 season, and Thanasis joined the organization in 2019.
