Knicks rookie Ignas Brazdeikis makes summer league debut in misspelled jersey

Don’t worry if you can’t spell Ignas Brazdeikis’ name right because his new NBA team can’t either.

The New York Knicks rookie made his summer league debut against the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday, but the problem was that his name was misspelled on his jersey. Lithuanian journalist Donatas Urbonas shared a picture of the misspelling, which appeared to read “Brazdiekes” instead of “Brazdeikis.”

The 20-year-old Brazdeikis, who made the All-Big Ten Second Team last year as a freshman at Michigan, was selected by the Knicks in the second round of this year’s draft with the No. 47 overall pick.

Brazdeikis shouldn’t feel too bad though because he is not the first Knicks rookie to have his jersey screwed up by the team.
