Lithuanian big man Donatas Motiejunas nearly entered the NBA draft last season, when he was projected to be a possible lottery pick.
Consequently, by returning to play another season in Italy, he has definitely become a more polished product.
First of all, as a 7'0", 220-pound forward-center, Motiejunas has used his length and athleticism to become a decent shot-blocker.
Moreover, he has the ability to score in a variety of ways, whether it be from the post, the mid-range, the perimeter or when attacking the basket.
However, he currently lacks ideal strength to play inside in the NBA, but at just 20 years of age, he still has lots of room for improvement.
Therefore, when one considers that he may have been a lottery selection had he entered the draft last year, it seems as though Motiejunas would certainly attract the attention of the Sacramento Kings at No. 5.
As a member of the Kings, Motiejunas' inside-out game nicely would compliment the purely interior style of DeMarcus Cousins, while the Lithuanian would be able to earn more time as Samuel Dalembert continues to age.
