Deividas Sirvydis, 6-8, Small Forward, Lietuvos Rytas, 1999
-Nice size for a 16-year-old wing prospect at 6' 8. Thin, but wide shoulders. Frame should fill out in time.
-Very fluid. Not an elite athlete but light on his feet.
-Smooth stroke out to three. Fairly simple, consistent mechanics. Father was a sniper, according to Sirvydas. His most translatable skill.
-Can shoot it off the bounce in time and space. Capable ball handler, shows some potential as a shot creator although it's not fully realized. Versatile.
-Strong feel for the game. Can play out of ball screens. Executes the simple play. Doesn't play outside of himself all that often.
-Solid instincts on the defensive end. Can slide, active hands. Fairly competitive.
-Flashes of crafty finishes slow down finishes, floaters.
-Only played one game due to an illness so we weren't able to get a great feel but we've seen him at the U16s and Eurocamp in the past.
-Nice frame but still on the light side, especially in the lower body.
-Struggles to play through contact on both ends of the floor. Not a great finisher at this stage. More fluid than freaky. Doesn't get to the free throw line at a high rate.
-Still developing as a shot creator and slasher. Gets bumped off of his spots on his way to the rim.
-Not the most physical defender. Will compete but still improving his ability to fight over screens both on and off ball
-Very left-hand dominant both as a driver and finisher.
-Still improving his ability to create space versus long athletes.
A versatile wing prospect and son of a coach, Sirvydis has positional size, a smooth stroke, a nice feel, and some upside as a shot creator due to his ability to handle and facilitate. One of the more intriguing wing prospect in Kaunas, we unfortunately weren't able to get an extended look at the Lithuanian wing, but with a brief look in Kaunas coupled with our past evaluations, it's safe to say he has the ingredients to turn himself into a legitimate NBA prospect as he continues to develop physically.
