“I have decided to play in Europe” Antetokounmpo explained. “I want to become a pro as soon as possible. I was born and raised in Europe, I know European basketball and the best thing for me would be to sign a contract with a European club. I will have to train and compete against grown men, I will experience strong competition and pressure and I will evolve on every level”.
The young Nigerian and Greek prospect graduated from Dominican High School and received offers to play college ball from UW-Milwaukee and Ohio. He was a two-time First Team All-State selection for the Knights, averaging 20 points and 7.3 rebounds per game in 2019-20.
