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

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

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

He averaged 3.6 points and 2.1 boards per 9.9 minutes in 48 opportunities wearing Bucks gear last season.

Thanasis signed a two-year, $3.6 million contract last August to stay in Milwaukee.
