Donatas Motiejunas (NOP) – “Donuts” | “D-Mo” ad

(Troy Taormina/USA TODAY Sports)


NOP Power Forward/Center: 7’0, 222 lbs; 6th year, Lithuania

NBA Role: versatile, hybrid 4/5

A (lefty) shooting four man, D-Mo can deliver devastation from downtown; when healthy, Motiejunas is a solid floor spacer for a 7-footer – comfortable stepping back after a screen; good footwork down low, features a variety of moves (with either hand) to lean on – better facing up than w/ back to the rim, though D-Mo has some nice hooks & counters; subpar rebounder, needs to hit the glass w/ more purpose; very good passer, can find cutters from the elbow; improving defender, can he protect the rim better than NO’s other bigs?; solid fit under Alvin Gentry?
