Giannis Adetokunbo, as it was expected, entered the 2013 NBA draft and he will probably stay in it, hoping to get picked in the first round. This decision of the 18 years old player was taken a long time ago, but now it’s official.
However, on Saturday the eight NBA teams representatives who traveled all the way to Athens in order to scout Adetokunbo live in a crucial second Greek division game, didn’t exactly see a coming out party. After two overtimes, Adetokunbo’s Filathlitikos lost to Nea Kifisia (89-81), his numbers were modest (4 points on 2/7 shots, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 turnovers and 2 blocks) and his team lost the chance of promotion to the first division.
Still, Adetokunbo’s talent and set of physical tools are well documented at this point almost by every NBA team and his stocks are on the rise. The next stop for him is expected to be Treviso’s Eurocamp.
