U19 - NBA or Euroleague Potential?
 
Aside Valanciuinas, do any members of the U19 have the potential to play in the NBA or a top tier Euroleague team?

- Dovydas Redikas?
- Vytenis Cizauskas?

Others?

It will be an interesting exhibition game against the US tomorrow. I'm not expecting too much from Jonas considering the pressure from the draft. In the tournament on the other hand he should be the most dominant center.

In my opinion Redikas, Čižauskas and Valančiūnas are will be best players

i like Deividas Pukis, can knock down 3's like ray allen, but tbh aside Val doubt any of these guys could make it to NBA

I also think that aside Jonas there aren't really any NBA caliber players. Athleticism is really important in the more isolated American game. That said some of those guys will be very good Euroleague players. I was impressed with their size, basketball IQ and physicality. Everyone knows that Lithuanians shoot well but some of the bigger guards were also penetrating the defense.

Lithuania's national team has a bright future. Javtokas, Jasaitis and all of those older guys will soon be done. BTW, it's weird that Javtokas is on Zalgiris lol.

Redikas has serious issues securing the ball, even against junior competition. He needs to improve it big time or he will be nobody. Kuzminskas proved it's way harder to secure the ball playing against real pros. It looks he never had this problems, but in Euroleague he was awful when it comes to dribble the ball. Improved that tho, but he is still not too much ready.

SABONIS :dead:

But if seriously, I think Cizauskas and Pukis will be a good players in Euroleague. Pukis reminds me of Kaukenas btw.

Cizauskas actually looks like he'll be a solid Euroleague player in a few years. Same with that lefty forward.
