He's definitely good enough to play and would be useful if Javtokas and Andriuskevicius get in foul trouble. He's already proven to be a valuable contributor for Rytas and had a few good games against Zalgiris in the finals, I doubt he'll play both the u18 and the WC though.

What do you think the Lithuanian roster will look like?

My guess:
Kalnietis / Delininkaitis
Gecevicius / Seibutis
Jasaitis / Maciulis
Kleiza / Jankunas / Motiejunas
Javtokas / Andriuskevicius

Maybe Kleiza starts at the 3 and Jankunas at 4.
