And he's 21 years old, doing all of that in the LKL (Lithuania) on the league's second worst team. Yet, according to you, he's an all-rounder who's good at virtually everything and the only reason he's not a first-round prospect is because he's not playing in the U.S. Yeah, I'm not buying that. Instead of complaining about prospects of the NCAA being overhyped, you should take a long and hard look in the mirror when it comes to your hyping of Greek prospects.
The NBA regularly drafts foreign players that didn't even play at all, or were playing on high school teams. They have drafted guys in the lottery with nowhere near as much a resume as playing in the Lithuanian League.
And he played against a EuroLeague team twice, and did well - certainly way better competition than any NCAA player ever had, or any guy playing in the Australian NBL for that matter.
Also, you can't judge if a guy can shoot or play, or what his skills are, solely by looking at a stat sheet. Which is very obviously what you are doing. It's like when so many people claimed Doncic wouldn't shoot in his draft threads, because "his 3 point percentage is too low". Try watching a game sometime.Kalaitzakis against a EuroLeague team (and they were using their regular players):
