Arvydas Macijauskas


Notes: Macijauskas is a lefthander who is one of the best pure shooters in Europe and is a legitimate 3-point shooting threat. European scouts note his killer instinct. Originally an early entry candidate for the 2001 NBA draft but withdrew his name from consideration.

Now eligible to be drafted as a player playing outside the United States who is in the year of his 22nd birthday. Began his professional career as a 16-year-old playing for Neptunas Klaipeda of the Lithuanian League (LKL). Played three seasons for Neptunas before signing with Lithuanian powerhouse Lietuvos Rytas, a club made famous by its star guard, former NBA star Sarunas Marciulionis.

Through 23 games this season, increased his shooting percentages across the board. Playing 22 minutes per game, he was shooting 52.6 percent from 3-point range, 63.2 percent from two-point range and 91.1 percent from the free throw line, above his career average of over 87 percent. Through the 23 games, he was seventh in the league in scoring (16.5 ppg) and was among league leaders in all shooting percentage categories. Scored a season-high 26 points against Panavezys, hit for 23 points against Siauliai and notched 22 points against Alita Alytus. Against his former team Neptunas, posted his best overall game of the season with 20 points, seven rebounds, five steals and four assists.
