Summary:

Tadas Sedekerskis is a tall, skilled combo forward that has a variety of skills that could prove to be useful at the next level.  He excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays, and he also can knock down spot-up jumpers off the catch.​

Plus, he handles the ball well, as he plays like a point forward, and he also has shown improved defensive skills.  However, he can struggle to consistently create his own shot off the dribble, and he does not take enough shots on offense.​

Right now, Sedekerskis looks to be a second round prospect for the 2020 NBA Draft.  He is already had played in some of the best leagues from around the world.  However, he did not get nearly enough playing time in the ACB, and he has since moved to play in Lithuania’s top league, the LKL, where he gets regular playing time.  He had a fairly good season for Neptunas, and he has since moved on to play for KIROLBET Baskonia.  Sedekerskis currently projects to be a potential second round pick for the 2020 draft.
