New FC Barcelona guard Rokas Jokubaitis will play in the NBA Summer League, per BasketNews sources.

20-year-old Lithuanian will suit up for the New York Knicks, who drafted him with the No. 34 overall pick.

Las Vegas Summer League will take place August 8-17. Straight after the Summer League, Jokubaitis will travel to Barcelona for a training camp, which starts on August 18.

"I would love to test myself in the Summer League. I want to show what I can do and check how they play there," Jokubaitis told in an interview with BasketNews.

Jokubaitis is expected to be stashed for the upcoming season. This summer, he signed a four-year deal with Barcelona.

"In my opinion, the most likely scenario for me is staying in Europe at least for one more year," Jokubaitis told BasketNews.

According to HoopsHype, Quentin Grimes, Miles McBride, and Immanuel Quickley should be the other guards on the Knicks Summer League roster.

The Knicks will play five Summer League games. Three of them are scheduled against the Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Lakers, and Detroit Pistons.
