Bilbao Basket of Spain announced the signing of forward Arnoldas Kulboka.
The Lithuanian swingman had a positive showing in this year’s summer league but the Hornets, surprisingly, will not bring him over. Kulboka moves to the top European league where he will likely receive plenty of minutes for one of the mid-tier teams.

Hornets general manager Mitch Kupchak confirmed that second round pick Arnoldas Kulboka will remain overseas to develop.
Kupchuk says, "The plan is to keep him over there and hopefully watch him develop and then, when he's ready, bring him back over here and see how good he is." The 20 year old initially declared for last year's draft before withdrawing. The Lithuanian ended up putting up 8.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.6 triples while shooting 36.6 percent from the field across 29 games in the Lega Basket League and according to Kupchak, "He's got one really, really good skill — he can really shoot the ball."

The Hornets have selected Arnoldas Kulboka out of Lithuania with the 55th pick in the draft.
Kulboka stand 6'9" and is playing with Brose Bamberg in Germany. He was previously expected to be a first round pick but his stock slipped throughout the year despite taking home Best Young Player honors in the Basketball Champions League (the second-best tournament in Europe). Kulboka is tall and has some scoring touch but needs plenty of polishing. He's going to spend another year or two overseas as this was his first season of pro-level ball.
