The promising youngster Mario Delas will be playing in his homeland next season. The 20-year-old forward was loaned to Croatian champions Cibona in order to continue his development.
The urge to send Delas on loan was sparked by the signing of Paulius Jankunas which made the front line of Zalgiris stacked with too many players.The player signed with Zalgiris in the middle of last season and already appeared in several Euroleague games for his new club. He averaged 4.5 points and 2.2 rebounds per game in Euroleague last season.
The player himself delighted his desire to improve his skills while being on loan and was keen to return to Kaunas in the following season.
