The 2015 Eurobasket Tournament will tip off in a few weeks and many countries are getting ready by playing each other in exhibition matches. For NBA teams, it’s a win-lose scenario, case-in-point Dante Exum and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Exum tore his ACL playing for his home country Australia in one of these types of matches and has been lost for the entire 2015 NBA season. Clearly the Utah Jazz are not pleased with the outcome. On the other hand, the ‘Greek-Freak’ is developing his skills by playing in these contests as he looks to breakout in his third season in the NBA.

Playing against Bosnia, Antetokounmpo enters the game and showed why he is many experts breakout pick for the 2015 NBA season, scoring 13 points in a mere 14 minutes. He ended the game with three rebounds and three blocks for Greece as they beat Bosnia 78-60.

Giannis has improved each year he has been in the Association, nearly doubling all of his statistics from his rookie campaign. Under the tutelage of Jason Kidd, the 20-year-old SG/SF will be a hot commodity in fantasy drafts this upcoming season.
