NBA Draft 2011: Donatas Motiejunas Working Out For Spurs, Rockets And More

Donatas Motiejunas is in the United States working out for teams ahead of the 2011 NBA Draft on Thursday, reports Chad Ford. Motiejunas, a Lithuanian big man known for his shooting stroke, will visit the New York Knicks (No. 17), San Antonio Spurs (No. 29), Houston Rockets (No. 14) and Philadelphia 76ers (No. 16), per Ford. All of those teams except for the Spurs would seem to be in Motiejunas' projected range.

Motiejunas has fallen behind several other international prospects in the course of draft workout season, including fellow Lithuanian Jonas Valanciunas, who is expected to go no lower than No. 7. Jan Vesely of the Czech Republic, Bismack Biyombo of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Enes Kanter of Turkey will all also likely go higher than Motiejunas. The major international prospects slated after Motiejunas are Davis Bertans of Latvia and Nikola Mirotic of Montenegro.

The 2011 NBA Draft will be held Thursday, June 23.
