Lithuanian Azuolas Tubelis and his brother Tautvilas have signed with Arizona, according to 247Sports’ Evan Daniels.

Azuolas is a 6-foot-8, 215-pound power forward while his brother Tautvilas is a 6-foot-6 wing.

Azuolas played most of his games last year with Perlas Vilnius of the NKL, a tier two basketball league in Lithuania. There, he averaged 16.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 28.6 minutes. He also got in games in the LKL, the top pro league in Lithuania, along with the Kaunas Tournament and the Eurocup.

The two brothers are members of the 2020 class.

Head coach Sean Miller has recruited multiple international prospects for 2020, getting Estonian guard Kerr Kriisa, French big Daniel Batcho and Turkish forward Tibet Gorener.

“I guess six years ago when I personally became involved with Team USA and USA Basketball and had my own experience with FIBA, I recognized not only the great talent that’s in the international game but the amazing skill level and coaching,” Miller told Arizona play-by-play man Brian Jeffries in an interview earlier this month.
