Raptors 'Tried Frantically' To Acquire Giannis Antetokounmpo On Draft Night
The Toronto Raptors "tried frantically" to acquire a top-15 pick in last June's draft in order to select Giannis Antetokounmpo.
John Hammond had decided 72 hours before the draft that the Milwaukee Bucks would select Antetokounmpo if he fell to them at No. 15.
Many NBA executives believed that Antetokounmpo received a promise from the Atlanta Hawks with the 17th overall pick.
