The Lakers have been awarded the rights to Giannis Antetokounmpo’s brother Kostas on a waiver claim.
Kostas Antetokounmpo — the younger brother of the reigning MVP and Bucks superstar — arrives from the Mavericks on a two-way contract.
Initially drafted 60th overall by the 76ers in 2018, 21-year-old Kostas played two games for the Mavericks last season.
Kostas made 40 appearances for the Texas Legends in the G League, averaging 10.6 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks.
From Athens to L.A. The journey continues for @Kostas_ante13.
