Brazdeikis is a 22 years old wing from Lithuania who played one season at Michigan. He came to Ann Arbor a year after Wagner departed. Was a 2nd round pick in 2019 by the Kings and traded to the Knicks on draft night.

Played in 13 games with the Knicks, pretty much just garbage time, as a rookie and in his second year.

Was traded to the Sixers as part of the George Hill trade at this year's deadline. The Sixers played him one game and then released him.

He has played quite well in 36 G-League games the last two years, but everyone does well in the G-League.

Why did we do this? Was Hall making us win that much or are we shutting down Bacon/Ennis for the season?

I remember being so close to the tax threshold the last couple years, that we couldn't give a guy like him or Wagner a try.

Kind of interesting that he played the year after Moe at Michigan, and the year before Franz.

hopefully the Magic give him some burn. Got a ton of time with the Westchester Knicks, but in a very different role than he'd ever play in NY. Basically was a high volume player there.

He didn't look quite good when he got NBA mins tho.

From what I have read he was a score in college that is a poor defender. I cannot say his NBA stat lines back up the scorer bit.

He needs to start for us tonight. Give him his best try out opportunity and a full 36 minutes.

with our luck, he balls out with both Moes, then Cole hits another game winner. SMH

He is lithuanian. He probably hits 6 threes if we start him :lol:

To be honest, only know him because of the memes on the Knicks board ^^

Did he not understand he was supposed to aim 5 inches to the left on all his shots because of the language barrier? :(

That's about 50k in additional salary for the young man. NICE.

I kind of hope we'd give him and Wagner non-guaranteed options for next year.
I think they've shown they could be suitable for end of the bench guys.
