Toronto Raptors Sign Youngest Brother of Superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo
The Toronto Raptors have found their very own Antetokounmpo.
While the Raptors were expected to be very active players in the Giannis Antetokounmpo Summer sweepstakes, the Milwaukee Bucks superstars decided to sign an extension in-season, delaying his impending free agency.
That was not going to deter Masai Ujiri and his front office from landing a Greek Freak of their own as the Raptors have reportedly signed Alex Antetokounmpo, the youngest brother of the reigning NBA Finals MVP.
🚨The Toronto Raptors are set to sign a deal with Alex Antetokounmpo according the Greek newspaper Ethnos.

The 20-year old Antetokounmpo stands at 6-foot-8 and played his high school basketball in Wisconsin before spending his last season playing overseas. Antetokounmpo went undrafted this past summer and made a couple of appearances for the Sacramento Kings in Summer League play. The Raptors will be bringing him in on a training camp deal and with the array of players of vying for a roster spot, it is very likely that Antetokounmpo ends up in the G-League with the Raptors 905.
This pick-up may not be the sexiest, especially as many Raptors fans expected to make a run at Giannis this offseason, but Giannis did once say that Alex could be better than he is.
Take that how you will and make sure to temper expectations ten-fold.
