Mantas Kalnietis Rumors
Candace Buckner: Roster for upcoming #Pacers rookie/free agent camp. Camp starts Wednesday, then ORL Summer League: Jarell Eddie, Solomon Hill, Mantas Kalnietis, DeVonte Lacy, Trent Lockett, James Nunnally, Jon Octeus, Arinze Onuaku, Romero Osby, Matt Stainbrook, Myles Turner, Christian Watford, Shayne Whittington, Joe Young
Tadas Bulotas, Mantas Kalnietis’ agent, told Lithuanian television Sport1 that his client has received interest from 3 NBA teams. New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and Indiana Pacers have already showed interest for Kalnietis and Pacers could be the most likely destination for him, his agent told.
They’ve already hammered likely Group D winners Slovenia by 30 points in a recent exhibition and are well aware longtime nemesis Lithuania isn’t the same threat after losing point guard Mantas Kalnietis just before the World Cup began. “We expect to win them all,” said Team USA power forward Kenneth Faried.
Lithuanian national team’s starting point guard was also invited to work out for the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs, but their camps will start only at the end of June. Once the NBA season is over. “Mantas will not go there, so he doesn’t miss the fishing season in Lithuania,” his agent Tadas Bulotas jokingly said.
