    Every team needs glue guys. If he is half of either of those guys coming off the bench that would be great.

    I listened to that interview a few days ago, didnt he say Arlauskas really played some great perimeter D against some of the US players? Sounds like maybe a lock down defender. Reminds me of Dranginis a bit. Rebounds, passes, does all the little things without making mistakes. If he can get his shooting back and be a threat from 3 GU could have a 3 and D guy like the NBA loves so much these days. If anybody redshirts he is my guess, just to help work back from injury.

    Interesting. I'll have to chew on that one a bit. You can sure tell he is still trying to get back into the swing of things offensively but looks like if he gets there, he'll have a big part to play.

    How do you say "defender, do the little things, stat-sheet stuffer kind of guy" in Lithuanian? Klijai

    It was encouraging to hear that Arlauskas rarely makes mistakes. That is a great attribute to have in a bench guy who you want to come in and just play solid basketball.

    His scouting report is promising, and mentions plus athleticism and good passing. For those who saw him in FIBA, was he taking hard shots, not taking enough shots, missing open ones, or ... ? He looks very fluid when I see his older highlight clips. I hope he has more Micah Downs in him than Mathis Monninghoff.
