Looks like knowing an MVP can’t hurt.
Reportedly the Milwaukee Bucks have added Giannis Antetokounmpo’s older brother, Thanasis, to their roster.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania reports that Antetokounmpo and Milwaukee have agreed to a two-year contract. Thanasis’ contract will earn him a guaranteed $3 million.

The 26-year-old played in Greece with Panathinaikos past two years and although the club wanted to keep him, there was too big of a financial gap between them.
In this past season, Antetokounmpo posted 4.2 points and 1.8 rebounds in 12 minutes per EuroLeague contest with the Greens.
Thanasis was the 51 pick of the 2014 draft by the Knicks, after spending a season in the G-League with the Delaware 87ers.
After two seasons with the Knicks and their G-League team, the Westchester Knicks, he returned to Europe in 2016. He was named to the 2015 NBA D-League All-Defensive second team.
