Thanasis was drafted by the Knicks back in 2014, but didn’t spend much time with New York. The small forward has been playing for the last two years in the Euroleague and was a two-time Greek League All-Star.
The reported signing would mean that the Bucks are set to have two sets of brothers on the squad this season. The Bucks announced the re-signing of center Brook Lopez. His brother, Robin, is reportedly joining him in Milwaukee.
