Kazlauskas to coach the Greek National Team
Jonas Kazlauskas seems to be the strongest candidate to coach the Greek National Team according to the latest news from the greek media. Georgios Vassilakopoulos went to Lithuania to discuss with him the prospect of taking up the head coach position for the men's National Team of Greece. If Kazlauskas agrees to coach Greece then this means that the era of Panayotis Giannakis will be officially over and the team will play a different style of basketball, similar to the one of Lithuanian National Team.
Kazlauskas is no longer the head coach of China and he has even bought a house in Athens lately which means that he hasn't cut off all ties to Greece from when he was the head coach of Olympiakos.
