Maccabi Tel Aviv continues its search for a replacement for Alex Poithers, who already had surgery on his hand yesterday and will be out for a long period of six months.
At least according to a report in "Eurohops", the yellows express great interest in Kostas Antetokounmpo, the brother of Giannis Antetokounmpo, the star of the Milwaukee Bucks.
The 25-year-old Antetokounmpo signed a two-way contract in Chicago, but actually played only for the Bulls' team in the Development League this season.
In addition, the in-demand interior player spent last season in Villerban, which was his first stop in Europe and Eliyahu definitely thinks that the Greek, who is also able to play in the position of power forward and center, can be an excellent replacement for the lack of Poithers.

It is also reported that not only Maccabi Tel Aviv are looking at the third brother in the Antetokounmpo family in light of the fact that Panabacha and Panathinaikos are also interested in the player.
"Of the three powers, Maccabi Tel-Aviv needs as soon as possible the addition of a player in color, this is in light of the injury of Alex Poithers, who may be absent for the rest of the season as well," it was noted.
It should be noted that Antetokounmpo holds a Greek passport, which is an advantage for Pau in the race for the player.
In case the player is added to the squad of the Greek Euroleague team, no other player will have to be removed from the squad.
