Rokas Jokubaitis is a smart, skilled playmaker that can shoot and pass the basketball, and he can effectively run the team with the ball in his hands. He is a solid game manager at the point, and he is a very competitive player on the court, but his average physical tools may limit his upside as a prospect for the next level. Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate, and his strong ability to knock down jumpers combined with having solid basketball IQ could allow him to be an effective rotation player in the NBA.
