The Los Angeles Lakers have been awarded Kostas Antetokounmpo on a waiver claim, it was announced Monday by NBA officials.
Giannis younger brother Kostas, who is currently signed to a two-way contract, appeared in two games for the Dallas Mavericks last season and played 40 games (25 starts) for the Texas Legends of the NBA G League, where he averaged 10.6 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals in 25.4 minutes.
Selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 60th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Antetokounmpo was acquired by the Mavericks in a draft-night trade.
The Greek athlete played the 2017-18 season at Dayton, averaging 5.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 15.1 minutes.
Kostas is the second-youngest of the four Antetokounmpo brothers.
He is 21-years-old, while Giannis is 24, Alex 17 is the youngest, and Thanasis 27 is the oldest.
