The four Antetokounmpo brothers have been confirmed to play for Greece’s national team in the EuroBasket 2022.

According to eurohoops.net, Greece’s head coach, Dimitris Itoudis, announced the news when he released the names of the 23 players available on the preliminary roster for the 2022 EuroBasket and 2023 World Cup qualifiers.

Two-time NBA MVP and Milwaukee Bucks star, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and his brothers, Thanasis, Kostas and Alex, have all been named on the roster.

Thanasis also plays for the Milwaukee Bucks, Alex has just signed for the Bucks’ affiliate NBA G League side Wisconsin Herd, and Kostas last played for French club Asvel but is now a free agent.

Giannis first confirmed he would play for the Greek national team last week on Twitter, when he posted a photo of himself wearing the Greek team’s training shorts, with a caption hinting at his return.

Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach, Josh Oppenheimer, will also join the coaching staff for the national team.

Greece will play in EuroBasket’s Group C, where they will face Estonia, Ukraine, Great Britain, Italy, and Croatia.
