The last child of five voiced Antetkoumpo, Alex, finally made his future choices. After making sure not to fight in the NCAA and choosing a career in Europe, Alex has just announced the team he will defend. Through his personal twitter account, Alex uploaded a photo of being signed with a Spanish league major team, UCAM Murcia.
“New Gazette”, write a statement on the upload. Alex signed the contract with his mother, Veronica. Reported by EuroHoops , Alex and UCAM Murcia agreed to a three-season contract. Although no exact details are known, it is said that the contract has a pretty good nominal salary for players of the same age as Alex. On the other hand, this contract also provides an entry clause to the NBA every summer.
UCAM Murcia is one of the best known teams in the Spanish League (Liga ACB). Although never won a title in the highest division of the Spanish League, UCAM Murcia was visited by some of the world’s top players. The assistant coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, Ime Udoka was noted to have defended this team when he was still actively playing. Then there are also names like Raul Neto (Sixers), Bojan Bogdanovic (Utah Jazz), Goran Dragic (Miami Heat), to Argentine international star Facundo Campazzo who has also been in the UCAM Murcia uniform.
Alex appeared dominant at the high school level, mainly in the Wisconsin area, United States. He was chosen twice as the First Team All-State (the best team in the state) and in the 2019-2020 season recorded statistics of 20.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Alex has received offers from two NCAA Division 1 campuses, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and Ohio University, but the offer does not seem to attract attention.
