Sonny Weems will finish the season with Zalgiris and will not return to the NBA until next season. Despite the recent talks about the possibility of the player leaving Lithuania in the coming weeks, the club has officially denied such rumors.
The team from Kaunas assured 15min.lt that the contract with Weems has been signed until the end of the season, there is no possibility of a buyout and no teams have even showed interest in acquiring the 25-year-old American.
The possibility of Weems leaving Zalgiris was brought up by NBA writer Alex Kennedy on HoopsWorld.com. It was Kennedy, who first reported that Weems signed a deal in Lithuania in the summer.
