Macijauskas out of Eurobasket

The slim hopes of seeing Arvydas Macijauskas playing for Lithuania in Eurobasket have vanished after the player decided not to risk getting injured. LKF president Vladas Garastas confirmed that to lryas.lt.

The reason of this decision is the trial between Macas and Olympiacos. 29-year-old shooting guard is trying to get almost 4.5 million euros from the Greek giants. Meanwhile the club wants to fire Macijauskas without paying him full wage because he was injured for the major part of his contract.

Though there are some good news for Lithuanian national team as Rimantas Kaukenas confirmed that he will join the training camp which starts on Monday in Druskininkai.
