Ibn Notes: Once projected as a high-first round pick, as high as the second overall pick, Andriuskevicius slipped, and slipped, and slipped... and slipped... all the way into the second round and 44th pick overall in the 2005 NBA Draft. The Orlando Magic picked him up and traded him to the Cleveland Cavaliers, where fellow 7-3 Lithuanian center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, will have the chance to tutor the young pivot in adapting to the NBA-style game and American culture.
