UPDATE: Thanasis Antetokounmpo Chooses Westchester Knicks

Thanasis Antetokounmpo has finally made his decision on where he will be suiting up next season. After turning down offers in Europe, and wanting to attend camp with the Knicks, the second round pick has decided to play for the new Knicks’ D-League team, the Westchester Knicks. The report was first tweeted by RealGM.com’s Sham Charania.

This means the Knicks will not have to sacrifice a member of their 15 man roster to keep the rookie in New York.

The idea here is that Phil Jackson and Steve Mills will be able to monitor his progress more closely with him being right in there back yard. It was viewed as a long shot for Antetokounmpo to make the team this year, but he should pay large dividends in the long run, especially on the defensive end of the floor.
