Lietuvos Rytas is tackling the summer market with full strength, with plenty of reports floating around about the Lithuanian team. Reportedly, there might be more changes in the club.
“As we speak, Roberts is a member of Lietuvos Rytas and has a contract with the club. However, it’s still not clear whether he’ll stay in Vilnius. There are some ongoing negotiations with the player’s agent,” said Purlys.
With Lietuvos Rytas adding another power forward in the Bulgarian big man Dejan Ivanov and still looking for a center in the market, it seems almost certain that Roberts will continue his career elsewhere.
As first reported by Sportando.net, Leon Radosevic is the number one candidate to join Lietuvos Rytas on loan from Olimpia Milano. It should be clear by tomorrow, whether the 22-year-old Croatian center will be coming to Lithuania.
According to Purlys, the situation with point guard Tyrese Rice is very similar to Lawrence Roberts’. There was an option to extend the player’s contract for another season, but after multiple reports, it is still unclear whether it will be done.
