Pieno Zvaigzdes continued its productive summer market activity by adding Edgaras Ulanovas, who led Lithuania to the U20 European Championship crown in Slovenia.
The 20-year-old small forward was chosen to the All-Tournament team after he took over as the leader of the team in absence of star big man Jonas Valanciunas, averaging 14.3 points and 5.4 rebounds.
Ulanovas, who still has a long-term deal with Zalgiris Kaunas, was on the radar of multiple Lithuanian League (LKL) teams, but the player decided to choose Pasvalys, where he was promised a starting role.
Neptunas Klaipeda, who are coached by the Lithuania U20 coach Kazys Maksvytis, was also very interested in getting the player on loan, but the team already has Deividas Gailius and Martynas Mazeika on the wings.
Ulanovas spent the last season in Baltai Kaunas, where he was averaging 9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game in LKL.
