Kupsas getting a shot at NBA

After putting up solid performances in the Adidas EuroCamp in Treviso, Mindaugas Kupsas put his name back on the NBA radar.

Sources have informed TalkBasket.net that the 22-year-old big man  has received multiple invitations to work out for teams in the States.

According to reports coming from Treviso, the San Antonio Spurs are one of the teams that are interested in the player, and are exploring the option to draft Kupsas in the second round.

The 7-footer, who played for Lietkabelis Panevezys this season, has shown definite signs of improvement, upping his averages to 10.5 points and 5.5 rebounds in the Lithuanian League (LKL) and 9.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in the Baltic Basketball League (BBL).

Kupsas is expected to be a late second round option for various NBA teams, who consider his combination of size and skill a worthy long-term investment and a potential project to stash overseas.
