(WNFL) - It will be "Greek Night" in Milwaukee this evening, when the Bucks host the Memphis Grizzlies. Bucks' forward Giannis Antetokounmpo will be one of three Greek players in the game. Memphis center Kosta Koufos and guard Nick Calathes will join him. Antetokounmpo rarely left Greece before Milwaukee drafted him last summer. Calathes and Koufos were both born in the U-S, but they have a dual-citizenship -- and they play for the Greek national team. The 19-year-old Antetokounmpo played for the Greek Under-20 team last summer. Meanwhile, Antetokounmpo has an older brother going through the pipeline. Thanasis Antetokounmpo plays for Delaware in the N-B-A's Developmental League -- and he'll be eligible for this year's draft in June. Giannis says he talks to his brother every day, as they share what they've learned. Thanasis averages 12 points and four rebounds in more than 30 minutes a game for Delaware. The Bucks are 7-and-30, and will play a Grizzlies team that's 18-and-19.
