Mindaugas Kupsas Looks To Become First 'Mindaugas' In NBA History

DraftExpress ace Jonathan Givony reported on Tuesday that someone called a Mindaugas Kupsas will enter the 2012 NBA Draft. I believe Mindaugas is Lithuanian for "Mundungus," but I cannot confirm at this time. I can confirm via Wikipedia that the name "Mindaugas" has a triumphant history in Lithuanian lore, as the so-called only King of Lithuania bore the name.

Lithuania has Mindaugas. The United States has George (Washington, Washington Carver, Jefferson, Jetson). This is not fair.

Now about Mindaugas Kupsas:

He's a 20-year-old center who does not appear on DX's mock drafts. He averaged just five points and four rebounds per game in the European U20 championships last summer as a 19-year-old.

It appears that the most important thing about his NBA candidacy is that his name is Mindaugas.
