Zalgiris inks Jeff Foote to cover Javtokas’ absence
The 25-year-old American center comes from NBDL team Springfield Armor where he averaged 14.6 points and 9 rebounds per game.
Foote also played in Europe. In 2010 he inked a three-year deal with Maccabi Tel Aviv but failed to make the first team roster and was loaned out instead. During the time in Europe he played in Spain and Poland.
Zalgiris will be waiting for Javtokas to fully recover before he is brought back to the first team. Therefore, Foote was signed for this season only.
