It did not take long for Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd to get to the point.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, the 6-foot-11 athlete dubbed the "Greek Freak," is being given an extended audition at point guard during the NBA Summer League.

On Monday night in the Bucks' game against the Utah Jazz, Antetokounmpo played almost exclusively as the primary ball-handler in a team-high 32 minutes.

But does Kidd really think Antetokounmpo could handle the point guard — or point forward — duties during the regular season?

The answer is a qualified yes.

"We've seen it in practice," Kidd said. "When you see a player's comfort level with the ball — no matter what size — we wanted to see it in game action. We slowly have started letting him have the ball and running the offense."

The 19-year-old Antetokounmpo, who enters his second NBA season this fall, clearly is relishing the chance to have the ball in his hands.

"I did it like two years ago in Europe, but last year I didn't do it at all," Antetokounmpo said of his rookie season in Milwaukee.

"As time goes on, I feel more comfortable."

Asked if he could play the point in a regular-season game, Antetokounmpo quickly responded, "Oh, yeah. Sure.

"If I can do it here, I can do it anywhere."

He committed four turnovers against the Jazz, but he also had a team-high 15 points, five assists, four rebounds and three steals.

"With the group we have right now with B (Brandon) Knight and Giannis, we have additional playmakers," Kidd said of the regular-season plans. "When we have that on the floor, it makes the game easy. We'll see how the roster shakes out, but we're not afraid to play him at the point, as you see."

Antetokounmpo has grown in confidence since the end of last season. He is more assertive on the floor and more effective in the half-court game, an area where he is striving to improve.

"This is a great opportunity for him to work on it and take a step forward," Kidd said. "Again, 19 years old. What I like is his competitiveness on both ends of the floor.
