Denver also plans to bring in another 6-foot-10 big man, Louisville’s Chinanu Onuaku, along with guards Joe De Ciman (Colorado State), Patrick McCaw (UNLV), Abdel Nader (Iowa State) and Michael Bryson (UC Santa Barbara).
Mockevicius led NCAA Division I with 14.0 rebounds per game during his senior season at Evansville. He also averaged 15.7 points and 2.8 blocks while shooting 63.7 percent from the field. He was a two-time selection to the all-Missouri Valley Conference first team.
The 23-year-old Lithuanian is ranked as the No. 38 NCAA senior by DraftExpress, which lists Mockevicius outside of their mock draft. Mockevicius’ agent, Pedro Power, previously confirmed that his client had worked out for three other NBA teams: the Brooklyn Nets, the Chicago Bulls and the Dallas Mavericks.
