Gytis Masiulis is an athletic, energetic combination forward that is eligible to be selected by an NBA team in the 2020 draft.
He has been fairly productive in Lithuania’s top league over the years, and he does a good job of attacking the basket to garner scores. He also has been shooting the ball well overseas during the 2020-21 season, and he currently projects into a 3 and D role at the NBA level. Masiulis will need to make more long-range shots consistently and be a more focused on-ball defender in games. Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 draft.
