Over at heinnews.com runs an interview with Donatas Motiejunas, the center touted as the next international superstar to come out of Lithuania. The site contends that Motiejunas is “projected as the number three pick in the 2010 NBA Draft” in leading an interview that took place during the FIBA U20 Championship Men.
When asked about the prospect of entering the NBA Draft, Motiejunas said in part:
In Lithuania, they are all talking about that. But […] I’m concentrating on the European Championship. And about teams where I will play next season, nobody knows because I don’t know either. I’m waiting for after this tournament. Then I will go back home and decide where I will play next season. And all Lithuanian journalists are waiting, writing that Donatas will do this or that. For me it’s silly. I’m sitting right here, I’m playing with the team. And they’re writing that I’m rejecting some offer from Zalgiris or some other team. It’s ridiculous.
