Lithuania is set to have a formidable lineup as they strive to secure a spot in the Olympics this summer.

Domantas Sabonis and Jonas Valanciunas, two prominent NBA players, have committed to representing Lithuania in the upcoming qualifiers scheduled for early July, followed by the Olympics in Paris.

Alongside these seasoned veterans, Lithuania aims to bolster its roster with the inclusion of promising young talent Matas Buzelis.

“Matas is ready to participate already this year,” head coach Kazys Maksvytis said. “We hope he will. It will be very interesting how this situation will turn out if he’s drafted.

“Will his next team let him play with the national team? Victor Wembanyama did not play with the French national team last year.”
