Antetokounmpo happy with progress
One of the most intriguing 2016 prospects nationally is 6-foot-9, 190-pound Milwaukee (Wisc.) Dominican small forward Kostas Antetokounmpo. The younger brother of emerging NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks, Kostas has the physical attributes of a high major wing and has a very high upside. The Greek native is pleased with how his first summer on the AAU circuit has gone. "I think I've played well and I've shown improvement but I can still get better," Antetokounmpo said. "I play with passion and I run up and down the court. Even if I'm on the bench I'm supporting my teammates. I need to get better on defense and have a go-to move to the basket." The elder Antetokounmpo has shown serious progress over the last year and he's given his little brother plenty of advice. "My brother tells me to work hard and that things will come if I keep working hard," Kostas said. "We work out together sometimes. I see him getting better every day and that makes me want to work harder too." Amongst the schools recruiting Antetokounmpo the hardest, he said, are Saint John's, Iowa State, Arizona State and Texas. Iowa State recently offered Scout's 69th ranked 2016 prospect and he's learning about that program. "Everyone says it's a good school and you can develop there," he said. "They get kids better there." Antetokounmpo has some ideas of what he'll be looking for in a school. "Location doesn't matter; I just want a school that's good for me," Kostas said. "I want a good education and basketball. I want a coach that will work with me and make me better."
