Rokas Jokubaitis Rumors
If the Lithuanian lefty Rokas Jokubaitis didn’t prove he should be on the Knicks roster this season, the rookie combo guard at least showed he’s a solid NBA prospect. Jokubaitis, selected 34th overall in the second round, has left the Knicks to go back to Spain to be with his Barcelona team. The plan was for Jokubaitis to play three games — and that’s what he did.
Mike Vorkunov: Rokas Jokubaitis says “it depends on my performance” when he comes to the NBA. Barcelona gave him permission to play 3 Summer League games for Knicks. Says there’s an “option” to play in NBA this season. “Right now the plans are to go to Europe but you never know in basketball.”
Mike Vorkunov: Knicks announce their Summer League roster. A few highlights: — Kevin Knox is on it — Rokas Jokubaitis will play — Luca Vildoza on it — Immanuel Quickley + Obi Toppin will play — Vets Justin Patton, Wayne Selden, Tyler Hall — Undrafted rookies: MJ Walker, Aamir Simms, Reid Travis
