Thanasis Antetokounmpo will return to the NBA this 2022-2023 campaign.

The Greek forward has exercised his $1.88 million player option ahead of the next season (h/t Michael Scotto of HoopsHype).

The older brother of superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, Thanasis is a tremendous motivator and energy guy on the Milwaukee Bucks sidelines.

He had an average of 3.6 points and 2.1 boards per 9.9 minutes in 48 occasions wearing the Bucks gear last season.

Thanasis inked a two-year, $3.6 million deal last August to remain in Milwaukee.
