Antetokounmpo to compete in Skills Challenge

Bucks rookie guard Giannis Antetokounmpo will participate in the NBA's Taco Bell All-Star Skills Challenge, a part of the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, the team announced Thursday.


Antetokounmpo, already chosen to participate in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge, will be the second Milwaukee Buck to compete in the Skills Challenge (Brandon Jennings in 2010).


Averaging 7.2 points and 4.5 rebounds a game, Antetokounmpo is quickly becoming one of more impressive rookies of the 2013 NBA draft.


The Skills Challenge is Saturday, February 15th while the Rising Stars Challenge is Friday, February 14th. Both events precede the All-Star Game, which is Sunday, February 16th.
