Matas Jogela is an early entry candidate who has seen his stock rise after various players from college basketball pulled out of the 2018 NBA Draft.
Not much is known about his game, but according to RealGM, he is a player that averages roughly 11.5 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in Lithuania’s second division, the NKL. In looking at his statistics, with some development, he could end up being a plus-level shooter and rebounder for his size if he continues to improve, as he could develop into a player similar to Kansas’ Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk in the future.
