Knicks brass is about to get a closer look at their lefty point-guard prospect Rokas Jokubaitis.

Drafted at No. 34 overall last summer, the 21-year-old Lithuainian got off to a shaky start this season with Barcelona of the Spanish league, but has been a firecracker of late, especially lighting things up with his 3-point shot.

The Knicks’ European scouts, Kevin Wilson and Adam Tatalovich, already have scouted Jokubaitis multiple times (Wilson lives in Barcelona), but more eyes are coming. Jokubaitis told Eurohoops that members of the Knicks front office are expected to arrive in February to meet with him and watch some games.
