Motiejunas To Pull Out Of 2010 Draft

With Kevin Seraphin likely also withdrawing, there may not be a 2010 international player in the first round. Motiejunas was looking to get a guarantee from a top-12 team, but hasn’t received one. From DraftExpress: “Herb Rudoy informs us Donatas Motiejunas ‘has decided to withdraw his name from this Draft. Feels that another year playing for Benetton will help prepare him better for his entry into the NBA in 2011. He plans to continue to train hard all summer and during next season to get stronger and develop his game to a higher level. He is excited about the NBA, but at age 19 believes that another year of playing in Europe is the best way to go.'”
