Barcelona close to Jasaitis

As the Catalan press reports Barcelona have made an offer to Simas Jasaitis after some of their key squad members suffered some injuries.

Last week Pascual had admitted that he was looking into the market for a possible signing, after losing at home to Fenerbahce. The club wanted to sign a guard/forward to replace Basile who will miss at least three months of action and their back court looked very thin in the past few weeks.

Jasaitis have had several offers since the end of World Championship, but opted to wait for a better offer, and Barcelona is an ideal team and place for him. He has a vast experience from ACB playing for Baskonia, DKV joventut and Valencia in the previous seasons.

It is yet unknown whether the Lithuanian will sign a part time contract or a deal until the end of season.
