Incredibly effective slasher in this age group. Shows outstanding scoring instincts for a player his age. Shot 67% inside the arc over 9 games. Looks to have a great future in European basketball. NBA upside still yet to be determined as he doesn't possess great size and is just an average shooter at this stage. Nevertheless, seems to be the type of player who will make the most of his potential.
One of the more experienced players on this squad, Seskus is already seeing minutes in the Lithuanian second division despite just recently turning 16. He was also one of the most confident prospects at this event.
He has a strong, mature frame and a good feel for the game, although he doesn't appear to be particularly athletic on first glance (he noticeably lacked quickness and explosiveness).
Seskus can create his own shot fairly effectively, driving both left and right and acting as his team's primary ball-handler. His aggressiveness acted against him at times in the game, though, as he turned the ball over five times in 29 minutes (although he did dish out four assists).
Seskus shows a terrific stroke from beyond the arc. He knocked down shots from all over the court at the game, some of which were very tough shots. His upside looked a bit limited compared with some of the other perimeter players seen here. However, his skill-level, aggressiveness and feel for the game can definitely help him carve out a nice career if he continues to improve.
