Wizards bringing in Donatas Motiejunas

Jonas Valanciunas is considered by some NBA scouts to be the most promising prospect from Europe, though his buyout with his Lithuanian team, Lietuvas Rytas, could force him to delay his NBA debut for another year. But there is still another Lithuanian prospect that will be available to contribute right away and he will be in Washington on Wednesday for an individual workout.

A left-handed perimeter player, Motiejunas, 20, averaged 12 points and four rebounds for Benneton Treviso last season. He is agile and a skilled passer, though he has an inconsistent jumper and some question his toughness. He’s not a great rebounder, but has played the past two seasons in one of the tougher leagues in Europe. If the Wizards decide to go with Kawhi Leonard at six, he could give the team another big with its later first-round pick.
