About “Iggy”

The most interesting prospect of the three, Brazdeikis is a Lithuanian born, Canadian raised 20-year-old that made his presence felt in the Big Ten as a one-and-done.

Brazdeikis measured at the combine 6-foot-7 in shoes and 6-foot-5 without and a wingspan of 6-foot-5 1/4. Mostly playing as a power forward at Michigan, Brazdeikis’ physicality, post and lateral defense on the wing will be tested in the NBA.

Undersized for the 4 and too slow to guard the 3, Brazedikis is a tweener who’s offensive talent is his meal ticket to an NBA roster. He is ambidextrous and shoots left-handed but is right-handed which keeps defenders on their toes with his driving and finishing ability.

If Brazdeikis has one thing though, it’s toughness. His father is Sigitas Brazdeikis, a 6-foot-6 former professional MMA fighter from Lithuania. He brought Ignas and their family to Chicago shortly before moving to Canada.
