The Milwaukee Bucks signed NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo's older brother, Thanasis, to a two-year contract, The Athletic reported Sunday. The 26-year-old forward was a second-round pick by New York in 2014 and appeared in two games with the Knicks in January 2016.

The Athens native won his second straight Greek League championship this season with Panathinaikos. He also played in 141 games in the NBA G League with the Delaware 87ers (2013-14) and Westchester Knicks (2014-16), averaging 12.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
