Matas Buzelis is an athletic, skilled combo forward that will play for the G-League Ignite for the 2023-24 season. He excels at attacking the hoop to score, and he is also a rangy defender that can cover plenty of ground. He is a highly touted prospect that will play in the G-League, but he turned in an underwhelming showing at the 2023 McDonald’s High-School All-American game. Still, he is regarded as one of the best prospects coming into next season, and he could be a likely lottery pick in the 2024 draft.
