Jokubaitis will test the NBA waters likely next year.

Zalgiris Kaunas guard Rokas Jokubaitis has withdrawn from the 2020 NBA Draft, per Jonas Miklovas. The 19-year-old player had been projected to be a late second-round pick and a potential draft-and-stash option by various mock drafts.

Jokubaitis, currently recovering from coronavirus, started the season as an important part of coach Martin Schiller’s rotation. He has been averaging 7.4 points, 3.0 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 19:37 minutes over five games in EuroLeague.

Apart from Jokubaitis, other European prospects that have withdrawn from the 2020 Draft recently include his fellow Lithuanian guard Arnas Velicka, Lithuanian forward Marek Blazevic, Greek wing Nikos Rogkavopoulos and Greek guard Nikos Kalaitzakis.
