NBA Basketball Hopeful Alex Antetokounmpo Will Play Professionally in Europe 

GistReel The road to the NBA for most basketball hopefuls in the US runs through the NCAA college ranks. Before 2006, the rare uber talent was permitted to jump to the pro ranks straight out of prep school. This lot included superstars known by single names like Kobe and LeBron. Alex Antetokounmpo is breaking the mold. The youngest brother of NBA AllStar Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks recently announced his intent to forgo the NCAA in favor of playing in a European pro league. Alex wrapped a standout prep career at Dominican High School in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin earlier this year. He earned two first-team all-state selections and averaged 20 points and 7.3 rebounds per game during the 2019-20 season. The talented shooting guard reportedly received NCAA Division I scholarship offers from the University of Wisconsin Green Bay and the University of Ohio. He cites a desire to turn pro as soon as possible as the primary factor behind his European league decision. Alex spent his formative years in Greece before moving to the Milwaukee area when Giannis joined the Bucks. Alex’s stint with a European club could be shortlived. He may be eligible for the NBA Draft as soon as 2021, and a strong performance abroad will generate interest from US teams. At 6-7, 190 pounds, he fits the physical mold of NBA guards. Many basketball analysts predict Alex will eventually be recruited into the NBA, perhaps joining Giannis and his other brother Thanasis on the Bucks. Regardless of what franchise claims Alex, the team will see a boost in the US in terms of ticket and merchandise sales and NBA betting odds at online sportsbooks. The Ball Brothers find success in Lithuania Alex isn’t the first player with NBA ambitions to turn to Europe. In 2017-18, LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball, younger brothers of New Orleans Pelican point guard Lonzo Ball, joined Prienai of the Lithuanian Basketball League (LKL). The move to the LKL bolstered the […] ...
