SKILLS

Rokas is a skilled Big Man with strong experience in both North America and Europe. Rokas is an explosive finisher above the rim, where he can slam dunk with ease. He has great touch around the rim, a reliable mid range shot, and is a great free throw shooter who knows how to get to the FT line.


Rokas utilizes his size and athleticism to be a strong defensive presence by not only rebounding and blocking shots at a high rate, but also doing the intangibles that don’t show up on the stat line such as forcing misses and deterring the opposing teams from driving to the paint. 

Rokas is an energy guy who brings intensity and professionalism to every game. He is a fan favorite who can hype up his teammates and the crowd!
