Summary:

Arnoldas Kulboka is a productive, 6-9 swingman that possesses solid offensive skills.  He is a very good shooter that can score in a variety of ways, and he also can score in the post as well as out in transition.  Plus, he also is a good playmaker that can be a point forward on the court.​

However, he will need to add strength, as this may hurt his ability to rebound or defend in games.  He can be outmuscled by stronger opponents, and sometimes he can tend to be out of position to allow scores to the opposition.​

Right now, Kulboka is an intriguing prospect, as he is an athletic, skilled swingman that has been quite productive in a second division league in Germany.  The 6-9 Lithuanian-born player has a wide array of skills that could prove to be useful in the league, and he could end up being a first round pick in 2018.
