Knicks draft pick Thanasis Antetokounmpo will play either in the D-League or overseas next season, according to RealGM's Shams Charania.

The Knicks do not have a roster spot available for Antetokounmpo after acquiring forwards Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw in a trade last week.

New York selected Antetokounmpo with the 51st pick after taking Wichita State product Cleanthony Early at No. 34. The team also picked French forward Louis Labryie at No. 57.
