Unlike the other Dirk wanna be's this Lithuanian cat, Donatas Motiejunas, game actually resembles Dirk the most...He's very agile for a big man and unlike most foreign bigs now a days, he could both mix it up inside with a post up game or shoot from the perimeter...I don't know where the Thunder are going to pick at next season, but I think he would be a perfect fit to their team...He's a 7'0 power forward with great touch, quickness, agressiveness, and a post up game...He just needs to mature and bulk up...Jeff Green is very good and he's one of their building blocks, but this dude, would be a great compliement to him, coming off the bench with his size and shooting abilities...They could afford to keep him overseas for a few years, make him develop some more, and at the same time, save up their cap room, to resign Kevin Durant, Jeff Green, and Russell Westbrook.
I dunno. He maybe more Bargnani then Dirk. He is really skinny. Also, I dont think Motiejunas has that perimeter game Dirk will have.
I haven't seen much of him, but his very thin, Dirk is a tough and physical player, he is much stronger than Montiejunas
IMO he should patent his game after Pau rather then Dirk. Id rather have my bigs fighting down low then floating out on the periemeter. Dirk is the only 7 footer with his skill set as far as; off balance mid-range shots and 3's. Even though this kid has touch, I dont think it's Dirk touch. stay down low, itll help the team
Dirk stronger because he is older and filled out more. Montiejunas will keep getting bigger he is only 19.
Yea Dirk was also very skinny when he first got in the L. And even though I've only seen a few clips, Donatus seems pretty strong for such a skinny guy and should only get stronger.
I know a lot of yall are not that high on this kid. But I beg to differ, top 3 selection that will drop to 7-10 because the euro's are not performing well. He will be an allstar in this league multiple times.
