In a press conference on Tuesday, Kestutis Kemzura announced the 19-man shortlist for the Lithuanian national team. The list will include Sarunas Jasikevicius, who decided to give a last crack at the Olympic Games.
It would be the third Olympics in a row for Saras, if Lithuania were to get past the Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Venezuela. However, there was some bad news for coach Kemzura too.
It appears that Donatas Motiejunas will not be able to help the team due to contract issues with the Houston Rockets, as he will only be able to sign a contract from July 1.
Lithuanian NT shortlist:
Sarunas Jasikevicius, Mantas Kalnietis, Adas Juskevicius, Tomas Delininkaitis, Rimantas Kaukenas, Martynas Pocius, Renaldas Seibutis, Deividas Dulkys, Simas Jasaitis, Jonas Maciulis, Linas Kleiza, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, Paulius Jankunas, Darius Songaila, Tadas Klimavicius, Donatas Motiejunas, Jonas Valanciunas, Antanas Kavaliauskas, Robertas Javtokas.
