Summary:

Tadas Sedekerskis is a tall, skilled combo forward that can score in a variety of ways.  He is a crafty scorer off the dribble, can post up smaller guards on the block, and he also can knock down jumpers.​

Plus, he handles the ball well, as he plays like a point forward, and he also will get it after on the glass.  However, he will need to improve his position defense, as he can tend to be out of position to allow scores.​

Right now, Sedekerskis looks to be a second round prospect for the 2020 NBA Draft.  He is already had played in some of the best leagues from around the world.  However, he did not get nearly enough playing time in the ACB, and he had to relocate to play in Lithuania’s top league, the LKL, where he gets regular playing time.  But after missing several months due to a spine injury, he is back in the ACB, and hopefully he may get some run with Baskonia.
