Recently rumours appeared linking Latvian shooting guard Armands Skele and Lietuvos Rytas. Skele himself admitted that he has an offer from Rytas and could end up playing in Vilnius next season. But it looks like all he wanted was to get a better contract offer from other teams.
Jonas Vainauskas, chairman of Lietuvos Rytas, told to Krepsinis.net that Skele's comments were bad lie. He accused Skele of using Rytas club name in the media to get a better offer from other teams.
Armands Skele had a good season in Latvia playing for Barons and attracting an interest of several mid-level European teams.
