   2017 NBA Manifesto

Mindaugas Kuzminskas
SF, 6’9, 215lbs, 27 years old, 1 year of experience

Kuzminskas had a pretty good debut NBA season with his package of energy, defensive enthusiasm (sometimes), missed rotations, cuts, drives and occasional spots. Perhaps we can generously accredit the missed rotations to the language barrier. Either way, if he can improve on that end (and a better team defensive unit around him will surely help), Kuzminskas may play a few NBA seasons as a three-and-D special-ist with some back door work thrown in. The 32.1% three-point shooting will have to improve, but after a prior career with only shorter three-point lines, an adjustment period is to be expected.

Player Plan: One more year at $3,025,035 before entering restricted free agency. A worthy price for a role player like him, but that’s all he projects to being, and he surely has little market value.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
