La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Mantas Kalnietis signed 3-year-contract with Benetton Treviso. Italian club has been showing interest in Zalgiris point guard for a couple of years already and it seems that the time has come for Kalnietis to move.
23-year-old 1.95m point guard averaged 8.5 points per game for Zalgiris in Euroleague this season. Kalnietis is expected to make the final squad of Lithuania national team after Sarunas Jasikevicius announced his desire to take a break this summer.
As we reported earlier Benetton is also holding talks with Lietuvos Rytas head coach Rimans Kurtinaitis.
