2024 Draft Profile - Matas Buzelis

Kevin O'Connor - The Ringer - June 17th: "Versatile offensive player who can be used in any scheme because of his high feel as a passer. He isn’t a savant playmaker who will lead an offense, per se, but he’s the type of player who could thrive in a two-man game with other like-minded players."

NBA Draft Room - June 16th: "He’s an all around talent who didn’t shoot the ball well this year but has good form and shows promise. I believe he’ll shoot it well at the next level."

Jonathan Givony - ESPN - June 7th: "as many around the NBA are intrigued by the idea of an explosive 6-10 wing who has playmaking ability, defensive versatility and flashes of shot-making prowess. The fact he doesn't need the ball in his hands to be successful but has significant upside to grow into at 19 years old with a developing frame, could be attractive for teams."

Sam Vecenie - The Athletic - June 5th: "Buzelis ticks that box at least, offering tremendous positional size for the wing/forward role. Players with somewhat similar profiles in last year’s class, such as Charlotte’s Brandon Miller, Memphis’ G.G. Jackson, Coulibaly and Whitmore, put together promising rookie seasons while displaying skills they didn’t consistently show in their pre-draft seasons."

Colin Ward-Henninger - CBS Sports - June 4th: " Buzelis will need to improve his shooting significantly if he's going to reach his ceiling, which could be a Franz Wagner type -- a big playmaker who can also get out and finish in transition."

Zach Buckley - Bleacher Report - June 4th: "His ceiling is tricky to set without knowing how (or if) his shooting will develop, but he's a big forward with the instincts and athleticism to fit with almost anyone."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - May 30th: "Teams will consider Matas Buzelis earlier than No. 11. At 6'9" in socks, his scoring versatility and defensive playmaking flashes create a coveted archetype."
