Giannis Antetokounmpo: Everyone experiences difficult times and times of grief. My brother Thanasis worked hard in the Knicks’ preparation, but he didn’t get the chance. That doesn’t mean anything. He has to keep fighting and chasing his dreams. In the last two seasons he couldn’t play anywhere else except for the two teams that had the right to call him up. For the first time in his career he can speak with all the NBA teams and all the teams in the development league. If he doesn’t find what he’s looking for, there’s always the opportunity and prospect of Europe. When I was 15 years old, I’d tried to get in the selection of the 12 best players in the school championships. I’d been cut from the top ones. Most of the kids that were in the top 12 do not play basketball professionally. I’m in the NBA.
The Greek agent for Thanasis Antetokounmpo said he is talking with European and NBA teams, but he said he thinks the 6-foot-7 defensive specialist may wind up playing in the D-League, if another NBA club doesn’t sign him. Antetokounmpo, the Knicks second-round pick in 2014, was waived Friday after playing just 13 minutes in preseason. His agent, Nick Lotsos, told The Post in a phone interview from Greece he would be choosey in accepting a European offer.
“To go to Europe, we’d want a great opportunity, not just a good opportunity,” Lotsos said. “We will wait a little [to see] what’s going on with some NBA teams, check out some interest, see what’s up there. Most of the European league [teams] are already in progress.” Explaining why he would consider Antetokounmpo to return to the D-league for the $25,000 salary, Lotsos said, “It’s first time has chance to be seen and everybody has right to pick him up. A D-League franchise will give him the stage to showcase his skills.”
