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.
I'd assume that would be the roster of our NT in Turkey. Obviously we are very shaky at the PG position, but we've been through this crap before - hopefully our coach will somehow manage to use other guards if Kalnietis sucks too badly. Gecevicius and Seibutis can perform PG duties as well if required. As for our big guys, I expect Kleiza to start at the 3 or 4, depending on the opponent, with Jankunas being our main PF.
