Azuolas Tubelis is off to the NBA.

The junior Arizona forward told ESPN’s Jonathan Givony on Thursday he will be entering his name in the 2023 NBA Draft. According to Givony, Tubelis is not expected to return to college basketball next season. He’s viewed as a potential second-round pick in the June draft.

A 6-foot-11 forward from Lithuania, Tubelis enjoyed plenty of success in Tucson, but his draft prospects are interesting.

Tubelis had a decorated college career, receiving first-team All-Pac-12 honors in each of the last two seasons while also being named a second-team All-American during the 2022-23 campaign. Tubelis was in the thick of the Pac-12 Player of the Year race for most of the year, stepping into a leading role for the Wildcats. He averaged 19.8 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 30.2 minutes a game.

Arizona went 28-7 and won the Pac-12 Tournament for the second consecutive season. Tubelis led the league in scoring and rebounding. He also ranked second in PER. He scored 20 or more 18 times in 35 games, had a 30-point outing against Cincinnati on Nov. 21, and then exploded for a 40-point game against Oregon on Feb. 2.

Scoring was never the issue, though Tubelis was challenged multiple times later in the year by coach Tommy Lloyd over his defense and his effort.

That coupled with his shooting could make NBA teams skeptical of his fit at the next level. Across three seasons, Tubelis only averaged 1.7 attempts from 3 per 40 minutes and he connected on those looks at a 29.5% career clip. He also holds a career average of just one block per 40 minutes.

Without a reliable 3-point shot and questions about his defensive fit, Tubelis is a bit limited as an NBA prospect. Still, he proved a capable distributor in Lloyd’s high-low action over the last two seasons and consistently found ways to put the basketball through the hoop.

Tubelis told Givony he plans to participate in the NBA Draft Combine from May 15-21 in Chicago. The 2023 NBA Draft is scheduled for June 22 in New York City.
