Default Motiejunas likely pulling out of draft

The chances of an international player cracking the top half of the first round of the June 24 Draft is decreasing rapidly, with 19-year-old forward Donatas Motiejunas of Lithuania likely to pull his name from consideraton before the June 15 deadline for international players under 22 to withdraw from the Draft. The 7-footer, who is playing for Benetton Treviso this season, was looking to get a guarantee from a top-12 team in the Draft before coming to play in the NBA next season, but none was forthcoming.

In a sign that Motiejunas is likely to stay in Europe, he had his tonsils removed on Monday after dealing with throat infections for the better part of a year. The time he'll spend recuperating instead of practicing and working out for potential NBA employers would indicate that he's made his decision.

A source close to Motiejunas put the chances of his withdrawal from the Draft at "90-10."

Hahaha thank god. I was having a really hard time with him in my mock and forcibly settled for Miami because I couldn't see him falling any further. I honestly just couldn't find any fits I agreed with.

Unless he truly gets in the weight room and makes a lot of progress in his next season overseas, I don't see him helping his draft stock out much.
