Default Do not Draft Donatas Motiejunas

Lots of information out there for potential draft picks. Raps have to avoid this guy. NBAdraft.net and hoopshype.com compares Donatas Motiejunas to Andrea Bargnani. Great article from NBA.com looking at power forwards in the draft. Its grabs an analysis from scouts and team executives. The following are some quotes regarding Donatas Motiejunas:

"He doesn't really love basketball," a Central Division executive says. "He doesn't seem to appear to like to do anything that's even a little difficult. That scares you a little bit.

"He gets pushed under (the basket) a lot and then he reaches up. Guys are going up over him to get rebounds. He lacks fire, lacks emotion. Always has the same demeanor on the court. If you're 7 feet tall and you have any hope of coming over here you have to be, routinely, getting 10, 11 boards ... I can't get excited about him."

Draft's strongest prospects found in power forward crop | NBA.com

Who wants another Bargnani type player for another 5 years.

Hi. First of all, DO NOT DRAFT THIS GUY. IMO, He is not a lottery pick anyways. Big possible bust.
BUT, not everything what was said here is true. He is NOT like Bargs, He is aggressive post scorer who draws a lot of fouls. He also can hit 3s and pass the ball extremely well. He can do all in offense. But he is bad defender and def. rebounder.
His attitude is great but his persona very questionable. Guy is cocky.
