Simas Jasaitis will continue his career in Russia, as the 30-year-old forward signed a two-year contract with Lokomotiv Krasnodar, which finished third in the Russian League (PBL) last season.
“I had a couple of offers, but I chose Lokomotiv. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the club and wanted to try myself in the Russian league,” said Jasaitis.
It is reported, that Zalgiris Kaunas was also actively pursuing the services of the player, but Jasaitis, who spent the previous season in Turkey with Turk Telekom Ankara, decided to choose the Russian team instead.
The Lithuanian national team forward was averaging 10 points and 4.4 rebounds in the Turkish League (TBL). However, he was really disappointing in the Eurochallenge, where he scored 4.8 points and grabbed 3.2 boards per game.
