A few words

Gilvydas is a very solid 4 position player who was played out of position most of his time in US college system because of his good size and team’s lack of true centers. He has very good athletic ability for his size, and good body which allows him to be hard to move and defend. He is a very skilled player, has a great form on his jump shot, and has range, although he was not used as a 3pt shooter in college. Great personality, and very hard worker and very determined to succeed.
