Jasikevicius to renew with Panathinaikos

According to, Sarunas Jasikevicius(1.93-PG) has already agreed with Panathinaikos to 1+1 season contract. Initially Jasikevicius wanted a closed 2 season contract but as the negotiations ensued both sides came halfway through and so Panathinaikos can give Jasikevicius 500,000 euros compensation should they choose to end the contract after only one season.

Jasikevicius stated that this triple crown might just be the highlight of his career and that he would be open to the possibility of ending his career as a player of Panathinaikos. The deal is yet to become official. Jasikevicus averaged 9.6 points 1.5 rebounds and 3 assists in 22 games of the Euroleague this season. The agent of Sarunas Jasikevicius will be arriving to Athens this Tuesday in order to finalise the discussions and perhaps oversee the contract signings. The contract of Jasikevicius is rumored to be 2 million euros per season which is a considerable reduction from the 3.2 million euros per season he was making.
