Jasikevicius returns to Lietuvos Rytas
Lietuvos Rytas announced today via their official website the return of Sarunas Jasikevicius(1.93-PG) to the team that he started his pro career in. The Lithuanian veteran signed a contract until the end of this season with Lietuvos Rytas and it's possible that this will be the last season as a pro athlete.
Jasikevicius was practicing with the team of Peristeri in Greece to stay in shape but he says that he is at 80% at the moment so it's likely that he will play tomorrow against Cibona. Lietuvos Rytas was the team to finally get his signature from the many teams that tried to do that since now. So this will be Jasikevicius' return to first club after an absence of 11 years! Jasikevicius left Rytas in 1999 to play for Olimpija Lubljana and then Barcelona, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Indiana Pacers, Golden State Warriors and he returned to Europe for Panathinaikos.
