“Zalgiris” basketball players chose shirt numbers

Keenan Evans, the rookie of Zalgiris, will be the first to run onto the pitch during the team presentation. When he started his professional career in Europe, he always chose the number 2, which will also appear on the green and white shirt.

After him, the rookie of the team who chose number 3 will step on the floor Dovydas Giedraitis. In recent years, he used to play with the number 33 shirt, but he had reserved this number after playing for Zalgiris before. Thomas Dimsha.

More than one newcomer cautiously asked if there was a possibility to get the number 13, but out of respect for the long-time captain Pauliis Jankūnas, who has just finished his career, this number remains free. Therefore, instead of the number that accompanied him throughout his career, Kevarrius Hayes will wear the number 8 on his jersey.

He found the numbers used in recent seasons free when he came to “Žalgiris”. Rolandas Šmitas (No. 10), Ignas Brazdeikis (No. 17) and Arnas Butkevičius (No. 51).

Two “Žalgiris” tall men Laurynas Birutis and Motiej Krivas chose adjacent numbers – 15 and 14. Another young player from Žalgiris, Liutauras Lelevičius, will wear the shirt marked with number 45.

The old-timers of the team did not need to turn their heads, who remained true to their numbers. Lukas Lekavicius will be linked to number 4 below, Mantas Kalnietis – 9, Karolis Lukošiūnas – 16, Tyler Cavanaugh – 34, Edgar Ulanov – 92.
