Jasikevicius Transfers to Turkey

Shortly after he helped his team, Lietuvos Rytas, advance to the Euroleague Top 16, Sarunas Jasikevicius (1994-98) was released to clear salary cap space. He will now head to Istanbul, Turkey (translation) to play for another Euroleague Top 16 qualifier, Fenerbahce Ulker:
"It was a long and difficult month in Vilnius. The team was unbalanced and I had to put in a lot of effort and concentration to do my best. Now I am heading again to the unknown, but Fenerbahce is a Final Four contender team," said Jasikevicius.

The point guard has played six of Lietuvos Rytas games in the Euroleague, scoring an average of 7.3 points and 4.3 assists.
