Most have him going to 5, but can somebody tell me why, His stats, well, IDK what to think,

He shot 20% from 2pt, which is pathetic in the NBA, much less Euro,

Shot 100% from the FT line, which I guese is good,

He had no blocks, no Steals,

Im very confused on why this guy is any good. Please help me

he is great, young and has huge potential...

In ZAlgiris he had no opportunity, so he actually even didn't play there.

He has shown great skills in youth national championships also played good in other lithuanian team

i will try to find better links with his stats.

U posted stats from 3 games. In which he averaged 7mins per game (7.5pts per game), cos that was his first games in euroleague and that was 2 years ago. Tho he shouldn't be in a hurry to nba, he needs to play lot of minutes.

He's the same as any other big, athletic Euro SF. See Bargnani, Andrea.

Better post player than Bargnani... not as good of a perimeter shooter (but still a solid perimeter shooter).

In addition to having a high skill level, he also has a lot of potential...

I'm sure he'll be a top 15 draft pick next year

That's some other stats also 2 years ago.
"He won MVP of the tournament leading Zalgiris to claim the junior title averaging 17.7 ppg on 64% shooting and 7.5 boards "
