Nike International Junior Tournament Istanbul Scouting Reports
May 17, 2012
Jonathan Givony

Strengths:

-Scored 17 points in 21 minutes of action in 9 NIJT games
-Strong, physically developed big man
-Tough, aggressive player
-Unstoppable presence inside the paint at this level of competition
-Posts up hard, fights for position inside
-Relishes contact
-Seals his man well, shows solid moves scoring in the post
-Good footwork, spins
-Excellent hands
-Very good offensive rebounder. Nice timing, moves opponents around en route to ball
-Made 80% of free throws in Istanbul

Weaknesses:

-A 6-9 center
-Perimeter game a work in progress
-Needs to improve jump-shot
-Defensive potential is limited
-May lack the lateral quickness to defend most power forwards
-Not explosive enough to offer a weak-side presence defensively
-Average defensive rebounder

Outlook:

Physical, aggressive lefty who scored at will whenever he was on the court in Istanbul, ala Pekovic. Some question marks persist about how his style of play will translate to the senior level, but tough to argue with how effective he is in his age group.

Jordan Brand Classic International Game: Top Prospects
April 22, 2010
Fitting all the stereotypes of your typical Lithuanian prospect, Augustinas Jankaitis did his best Linas Kleiza impersonation throughout the week, making a strong impression along the way. A good (but not great) athlete who stands around 6-7 and has a nice frame, Jankaitis is a versatile prospect for his age. He does a little bit of everything for his team.

He stands out primarily because of the effort and competitiveness he brings to the table, something that manifests itself in particular on the offensive glass, helping him lead the game in rebounding with 13. Jankaitis is a tough guy who is aggressive in everything he does, whether it's putting the ball on the floor from the perimeter, finishing through contact around the basket, stepping out on screens defensively, posting up inside, or attempting jumpers from the outside; all of which he can do somewhat effectively at this stage.

A very advanced player considering his age (just 15-years-old), the question now becomes how much better he can get in the future, and whether he'll grow a couple more inches. He's already off to a great start. We'll have to see how he continues over the next few years.
